Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Certainly nuthin' wrong with a good big choc chip cookie and a glass of milk. I baked this for my last english class before the exam that we have on Thursday, and they really went down a treat. Its a good base recipe too, that can be changed and modified to your liking very easily. This recipe was also published in local magazine Pukka Bath.
Chocolate Chip Cookies (Makes 16 large cookies) 29p per cookie
250g unsalted butter, softened
250g light brown sugar
200g plain flour, sieved
2 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp cocoa powder
200g milk chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 180C (fan oven 160C). Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg until the mixture is smooth.
2. Add the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and chocolate chips and mix.
3. Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Put a large tablespoon onto the baking tray (the cookies spread out a lot, so cook in batches of six per time).
4. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
