Recently, I made the most amazing cookies with some lovely friends. It was so great attempting these with such bubbly and great people. I feel like baking with friends is way more exciting than doing it by yourself, so find a baking friend! It was so fun to do and they turned out really well, so I thought I would share my recipe with you!
Some really good chocolate chip cookies
3/4 a cup of Caster sugar
1/2 a cup of Brown sugar
2 cups of Self raising flour
1 and 1/2 a cup of Chocolate (chips or chunks: either way is super tasty)
3/4 of a cup of Butter (we used salted)
1 Egg (medium)
2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract
1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease two baking trays (we used exta butter from the block) or line with baking paper.
2. Cream the sugars and the butter together until pale and smooth. ( we had to mush them, with a wooden spoon, a little bit before the were “creamed”) Beat in the egg, but don’t over-mix ( I think if you over mix it will curdle the mixture – although how can you tell if cookie mixture is “curdled”?)
3. Add the flour and the chocolate chips. Hopefull the dough should be a little sticky, if not add a teaspoon of milk until it is a little sticky. Place blob (or rolled up balls of dough if I’d didn’t turn out stick and you have no milk) of mixture on the prepared baking trays.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, (until golden but not too golden though) then remove from oven and leave to cool.
If you make them please send photos love to see how they turned out! Hope you enjoyed this recipe!
Btw. They taste really good warm with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, and chocolate sauce or Nutella!
