easy choc chip cookies
- 125g unsalted butter (very soft but not melted)
- ⅔ cup (160g) brown sugar
- ⅓ cup (75g) raw caster (superfine) sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1½ cups (225g) plain (all-purpose) flour
- ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of (baking) soda
- 200g dark or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
- Place the butter, sugars and vanilla in a bowl and, using a spatula, mix well to combine. Add the egg and mix well, then add the flour and baking soda and stir to combine. Add the chocolate and fold through.
- With clean hands (the fun part!) roll ⅓ cupfuls (80ml) of the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
- Bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until golden. Wearing oven gloves, remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool on the trays before sneaking a bite! Makes 8
TO MAKE THE EASY CHOC CHIP SHARE COOKIE
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Make the easy choc chip cookies up to the end of step 2. Instead of rolling into balls, press the dough out into a 20cm round that is about 2.5cm high on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool on the tray before serving. Serves 8
Make sure your butter is soft and squidgy, but not melted. If it has melted a little, just pop it in the fridge for a few minutes.
A very simple but stunning way to gift cookie dough is to roll it in a couple of sheets of non-stick baking paper. Twist the ends and tie with ribbon or twine. Tie a sprig of flowers or herbs to the log with twine. Get crafty and make gift cards with baking instructions to add to your cookie dough gift.
