Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wrote about a charity bake I did recently in my previous blog post, where I was tasked with making about 70 jars of cornflake cookies and chocolate chip cookies.

Here’s the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies!

 

INGREDIENTS:

200 g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp cocoa powder

150 g butter

120 g castor sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

60 g mini chocolate chips

 

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180C.

Sieve flour with baking powder and cocoa powder.

Cream butter with sugar till light and fluffy.

Add egg and vanilla extract and continue to whisk for 2 minutes.

Fold in flour, add in the chocolate chips. Mix well to form a sticky dough.

Shape cookies or use a 3 cm scoop to form cookies. Place on a cookie tray and bake for 20 minutes.

This dough gives about 50 cookies each about 3.5 cm when baked.

 

Notes:

I used French butter to give a light and crispy cookie. If using unsalted butter, add ¼ tsp of salt to the flour before sieving it.

Use real chocolate chips. There are some that are made from cocoa powder and some other flour which tastes a little plastic. Avoid these please.

Same for cocoa powder – use the real stuff. You can add 2 tbsp of cocoa if you want the cookies to be more chocolatey! Please use good ingredients for the best cookies. It is better to make a small batch of the best tasting cookies rather than lots of inferior tasting cookies.
