Today I wanted to share with you a very cool and yummy recipe: My American style Big Choco Chip Cookies! I love cookies! Here is the recipe that I love doing perhaps once a month, for me and my family to have a delicious treat!
You Will Need:
110g Butter, softened
200g Soft light brown sugar
Splash of Vanilla Extract
165g Self Raising Flour
Half tsp of baking powder
30g Cocoa Powder(optional)
100g Milk Chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 190c and then line 2 large baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
Put the butter and sugar in a large bowl and cream together until combined. It does not need to be light and fluffy – I do this with my mixer but a hand whisk will do the job too. Stir in the egg and vanilla and mix well. It may look curdled at this stage but don’t worry, give it a good whisk and it will come good.
Add the flour, salt, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder and mix until the dough looks uniform. The dough will be very stiff. add chocolate chips and mash with a spoon.
Divide mixture into 8 balls and space about 10cm apart on the prepared baking trays. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes – the cookies will have a cracked top and be very soft. Remove cookies from the oven and leave to cool on the baking trays. They will quickly harden as they cool.
Serve with a obilatory glass of ice cold milk.
Yummy, gooey and gorgeous. Perfect for a well deserved end of week treat!
I hope you try out this recipe for wonderful cookies. I’m sure that if you make them, you will keep on making them!
