Does anyone have one of these tucked in between their cookbooks. I’m not sure where it originally come from but I somehow acquired this album full of old recipes from my parents house when they moved.
Today I want to share my adaption of a recipe that we use quite often from this book. Its a choc chip cookie recipe that is pretty simple but oh so yummy.
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract or 1tsp of vanilla essence (whichever one you have)
1 large egg (we use duck eggs for a richer flavour)
2/3 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of plain flour
and 1 rounded cup of choc chips (we use white and brown choc chips)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees or 160 for a fan forced oven
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, caster sugar, brown sugar and vanilla together until pale and creamy.
Add the egg and beat until combined.
Sift flours together and add choc chips and flour to the butter mixture and stir until well combined.
Form heaped teaspoons of dough into balls and place on a baking tray.
Bake for about 13-15 minutes or until lightly golden. The longer you leave them in the crunchier they are. We like them soft and doughy so I take them out around the 13 minute mark when they are JUST showing some golden.
Leave cookies too cool or eat them while the chocolates still gooey and hot (my preferred way).
