Chocolate Chip Cookies – the best!

IMG_1024

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in our household, so I didn’t do any baking last weekend, so thought I’d make up for it with a few home favourites.  My youngest got his favourite blueberry teddy bear cake yesterday, just in time for him to share with his sister’s boyfriend – see who gets to it first!  And, everybody at home loves the chocolate chip cookies, my husband in particular, so I thought I’d make a big pile of them.

I did get a message from my daughter yesterday when I sent her the pics of the cookies to say that we should be dieting, and she can’t turn her back for one minute before I get the flour out – hahaha – she’s so right!  Here we go:

Gotta love the book Grandma’s Best Recipes, page 215, and for once, I haven’t adapted it, except for the doubling up of course 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 125 grams of soft margarine, plus extra for greasing – I don’t do the greasing bit, I’ve got these fab things, can’t remember what they’re called, but you put them in the cooking tray, they’re silicone, so no greasing required – and we use Stork margarine
  • 175 grams of plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 85 grams of light muscovado sugar
  • 5 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 125 grams of dark chocolate chips – I use Sainsbury’s cook’s dark chocolate chips and I put in 150 grams if I’m making one portion and 300 grams for doubling

 

Steps:

  1. Preheat the over to 190, and get two baking trays ready
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat well until combined – now, if you want the cookies to come out looking more chocolatey (is that a word?), then nuke the margarine and put that on last over the chocolate chips, and then beat well etc

 

Then bake it in the over for about 9-10 minutes until they’re golden brown, and then put them onto a wire rack to cool completely before chomping on them!
