Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookies are treats I rarely bake, from scratch anyway. I know a handful of people who cannot be bothered sifting flours to make brownie mixture but would rather buy the pre-mix packets from the shop. I am the same with cookies. For some reason, I couldn’t be bothered sifting the flours, making the dough and rolling them into tiny balls then bake them. I saw this recipe from Taste.com.au for gooey chocolate chip cookies a few days ago.  Sounded really easy to make and the reviews were good so I decided to have a go and give it a try … from scratch!Your choice – gooey or crispy. I like my cookies either way so I made half of the batch gooey and the rest crispy.Ingredients

Method

1.   Preheat oven to 180C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

2.   Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and combined sugars in a medium bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat until well combined. Add the flour and baking powder and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the chocolate and stir to combine.3.   Roll 2 tablespoonfuls of mixture into a ball. Place on the lined tray.  Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes (or a further 5 minutes for a crisper biscuit).4.    Remove from oven and set aside ; cool completely.These are big cookies so make sure you give enough room for the cookie dough to spread. The cookies when done were as big as my palm (and I promise you I have big hands for a girl!) By the way, I used dark chocolate with almond nuts because I love nuts in my cookies!

  1. A good chocolate chip cookie is so under rated. I can taste the chemical taste in the pre-mixed dough and just cannot enjoy it. I like the addition of an extra egg yoke. I am sure that makes it tender and rich.

      I know what you mean by the chemical taste in pre-mixed dough or powder for brownies and cakes. My son can tell the difference whether they (brownies) were from scratch or pre-mixed commercially bought.
      Yes, the extra egg yolk was a good thing.

  2. Homemade is ALWAYS better and that pretty much goes for most foods!
