I have been house sitting for neighbours who have been abroad for a family wedding & since they arrive back today, I decided to bake a little treat to enjoy as they unpack & relax again.
My Wondering Star daughter & her man Andy always made these cookies as a late night treat when a little sweetness was needed.
These are like Millies cookies & are quick & easy to make.
The ingredients are:
125g softened butter
100g light brown sugar (I cut down on the sugar & only used 120g combination of both)
125g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
200g chocolate chips (I used dark & milk chocolate chips)
Preheat the oven to 180C / gas mark 4
Cream butter & sugars & add egg & vanilla extract. (I cut down on the sugar by using only 120g combination of both - this did not effect the taste at all.)
Sift in flour, salt & add chocolate chips.
Roll in to walut sized balls & lightly flatten between the hands. Place a little apart on greaseproof paper. These 4 had to be baked separate as the tray was full.
If you want them slightly softer, bake for about 7 minutes, or 10 minutes for a slightly firmer cookie (my choice)
Cool & enjoy with a cuppa or serve warm with a bit of ice-cream on top for a quick pudding.
Very quick to make from things usually in the cupboard (I always keep a packet or two of chocolate chips in the baking cupboard.
Do you have a quick standby that you can make in a hurry if needed?
Thanks for stopping by, let me know if you have been tempted by the cookies
