Cookies, soft and chewy

img_2853

This recipe for cookies is so easy to make. It is just a simple few ingredients mixed together. You can change it around a little buy adding some raisins or rolled oats. I’ve experimented with rum soaked raisins and dark chocolate pieces, this one was obviously for the adults, delicious with a shot of coffee. You should ask the kids what they would like to add in, I’m sure they’ll entertain you with their choices. This is a very versatile recipe and takes no time at all to complete.

The Ingredients:

2 cups of flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp of  Borneville cocoa

3/4 cup melted unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

2 cups of chocolate chips

1 tbsp vanilla essence

The Make:

Sieve flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa into a large bowl. Add the sugars and mix these dry ingredients together. Melt butter in a pot and allow it to cool for a bit. Add the eggs to the mix and stir. Once the butter has cooled add it to the mix and stir. Now add the vanilla extract and chocolate chips to the mix and stir. Use your hands to combine all the ingredients together to make a dough. Empty the cookie dough onto a sheet of cling film. Roll it out like a sausage and cover it with the cling film. Refrigerate dough until it is firm. Pre-heat oven to 160C. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Cut cookie dough into 5cm slices and lay out on the tray. Be sure to leave about 2 inches between each cookie as they will spread out during cooking. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Once the cookies start to brown at the edges remove the tray allow to cool for 1 minute. Using a spatula place cookies on a wire rack to cool more. You should now have some beautiful chewy cookies.

Enjoy.
