This week I have been consumed by an ever-consuming pile of University assessments and exam preparation, amidst all the study I found some time to cook up a batch of cookies which made study that much more bearable. The recipe is my mothers creation, transformed through time as our pantry ingredients changed. It is easy, quick and delicious, what more could you want in a cookie?
What you will need:
- 2 1/4 cups of plain flour
- 1/2 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups of milk/dark chocolate chips
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1 tsp of salt
Preheat the oven to 175*C. In an electric mixer, combine the butter with brown and white sugar and beat until light and fluffy in consistency.
Whisk the flour and baking soda together and add to the ingredients in Step 1, then you may ad in the choc chips and mix on a low speed until combined.
Roll tablespoon size balls of the cookie dough, roughly 2 inches apart on baking sheets
Bake until the cookies are golden but soft in the center. Roughly 10 minutes (depending on your oven). When cooked, place on a wire rack and let them cool for 10-20 minutes.
