HEY WHO DOESN’T LIKE BISCUITS!?
Yeah so a few weeks ago it was my housemates birthday and we scoured through hundreds of photos of cakes to see which one she would like me to cook. We settled on the most amazing but simplest recipe, this chocolate chip cookie CAKE. It was basically a giant cookie, in the shape and density of a cake. It went down well.
Thus having lots of cookie making ingredients in my house, I thought I’d be generous and make cookies. And I mean, I made a LOT of cookies. White and double chocolate chip. Tubs and tubs. I’ve frozen them because I can’t bear to see them go off, freezing them makes them last longer apparently.
Anyway, enjoy. Cookies are easy to make and require very few, and easily sourced, ingredients.
-1 1/2 cup of plain flour
-1/2 tsp baking flour
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 cup of soft butter
-1 cup of brown sugar (I used demerara)
-1 tsp vanilla essence
-200g chocolate chips (I used 100g white and 100g milk)
-Pre-heat oven to 180-200c. Line a few baking trays with greaseproof paper, or grease them with butter/oil.
-If you have a food processor, process the butter and sugar until creamy. If using hand, cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon.
-Add the egg and process/mix until the ingredients are well combined.
-Add the remaining ingredients and continue to process/miss until everything looks lovely and sickening.
-Scoop heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto the baking tray and cook for about 20-30 minutes until the cookies are brown and quite soft to touch. Leave to cool and then enjoy!
