Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Here is the recipe with some pictures of the ones I made. (The recipe is in the Ballymaloe cookbook.) (I have halved this recipe so I had the right amount of cookies.)
Here it is:
This recipe is NOT the halved one!
P.S I wrote this recipe a while ago. It was on my other blog, and I decided to move it here...
Here it is:
Makes about 36-40 depending on size.
225g (8oz) butter
200g (7oz) brown sugar
175g (6oz) caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ( I do not use this)
350g (12oz) plain white flour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate soda
pinch of salt
150g (5oz) chocolate chips
110g (4oz) chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/gas 4.
Cream butter, add sugars, and beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg bit at a time and then the vanilla extract. mix the dry ingredients and fold them in. Lastly add the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
Divide the mixture into 7g (1/4oz) pieces for teeny weeny cookies or 25g (1oz) for medium cookies or 50g (2oz) for American style cookies on a baking sheet. Remember to allow lots of room for spreading. Bake for about 8-10 minutes depending on size.
Cool for a few minutes on the tray and then transfer to a wire rack. Store in an air tight container.
