Weekend Goodness - Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, 11 August 2012

Looking for a little yummy goodness this weekend? I thought I'd share our favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe with you!

Sure to be a hit...

...especially with a glass of cold milk to dip them in! 

Ready to get started? Okay, here we go! Gather all your equipment before you get started. If you're like me, and live in a place where you can't buy chocolate chips, you'll have to chop up your chocolate before you get started. I'm lazy, so my chips are BIG!

(original recipe, Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, was found on allrecipes.com. We adjusted it a bit.)
Here's what you'll need:
225g softened butter (or margarine)
200g white sugar
220g brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
375g flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp hot water
1/2 tsp salt
335g dark chocolate chips or cooking chocolate
 You might notice, as I did, that there is a LOT of chocolate in this recipe. When I pointed that out to Christian, AFTER he had eaten one, he said, "No! It's fantastic!" So....I guess that's what makes them the best!

1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.
2. Mix the softened butter with the white and brown sugar. 
3. Beat in your eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
4. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water (it does this fun bubbling thing). Add it in, along with the salt.
5. Add the flour and chocolate chips. The recipe says to stir it in, but that was just so much work! I used the dough attachment for my hand mixer (those funny looking spiral things) and it came out like this:

6. Put blobs of cookie dough on a baking tray and pop it into the oven for 10 minutes in the middle of the oven, or take them out when the edges start to harden (so the middle is still soft).
7. Enjoy them warm with a glass of cold milk!

Let me know if you enjoyed them! Have a great weekend :)

Hugs, Fiona
