I really enjoyed making my last baking post, so I thought I would give it another go! Once all the snickerdoodles were gone, I wanted more cookies, and chocolate chip is my second favourite!
The recipe I used is another old, trusted one that I found online. There’s so much recipes out there! I’ll leave a link here and let you know again, that the recipe I used has been halved. I also am not a fan of nuts, so I always opt to leave those out. This recipe gives you soft, chewy cookies, which again is the type I prefer!
Let’s get into it.
First, make sure you have all the ingredients, cause I’ve been caught out before.
To make 12 cookies, you will need:
- 1/2 cup butter (softened)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence (I can’t tell the difference truthfully)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp hot water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Cream together the softened (or in my case, almost melted) butter, brown and white sugar.
Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla.
Now the dry ingredients. Time to add baking soda, salt and flour.
Now, for the best part! The chocolate chips!!
Now to scoop it out and put on the baking trays.
I baked them for 15 minutes at 150 degrees celsius.
As usual, they expanded more than I thought. But they look (and taste) good! Which is the most important part.
I really like cookies 🙂
Also, it looks like we’ve almost reached 300 followers! I’m off to plan a special little post thanking everyone for when we reach it ?
