Well it’s been a few weeks since i made some chocolate chip cookies. I needed to make a batch on Sunday for school lunches as Miss 7 has returned to school this week.
I’d just got out the book “A good baking day – 500 recipes from the kitchens of Rural women new zealand” from the library, so i leafed through that and came across the “Best-ever chocolate chip cookies” recipe. With a title like that how could i not try them!
75 g butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup pain flour
1/2 baking soda
100 g of dark chocolate chopped
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line biscuit tray with baking paper
Melt butter until just liquid, remove from the heat. Add both sugars adn egg, and beat with a fork. Sift flour and baking soda and add with chocolate chips to the butter mixture, stir until well combined.
Place teaspoonfuls on baking tray, leave room for biscuits to spread. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack.
So did they live up to the “best-ever” description? They are a 3 star recipe. They are more a crunchy cookie, rather than chewy, and they ended up being enormous, boy do they spread. The kids enjoyed them in their lunch box, but i wouldn’t rave about them.
