As winter descends, so does the need for chocolate chip cookies. Follow this recipe to make your own!
You will need:
- 300g (2 cups) plain flour (sifted)
- 225g (1 cup) caster sugar
- 200g (1 cup) of butter melted
- 100g-200g chocolate chips
- 1tsp of baking powder
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- Set your oven and mix the ingredients
Melt the melted butter and sugar into a large bowl and mix together. All you’ll need is a wooden spoon for this, so don’t worry if you don’t have a whisk.
- Get sifting
Sift the flour and baking powder into your mixing bowl. Add the vanilla and salt to the bowl, too. Most importantly: add the chocolate chips!
- Make it into a dough
Using your hands or a wooden spoon, mix everything together. Once the texture is dough-like, add the egg and knead with your hands.
- Add them to the baking tray
Spread some butter onto a baking tray. Take a piece of the dough and roll it into a ball, then slightly flatten it. Make sure to keep the dough pieces quite small because they will spread out when baking (they’ll get stuck together!)
- Baking time!
Place the tray in the oven and bake at 160C (gas 3) for 10-20 minutes. The larger your cookies are, the longer they will take to cook. You’ll know they’re ready when the edges are a slightly golden.
Then all you have to do is leave your cookies to cool. And, then the best bit: enjoy them!
