My new favorite Choc Chip Cookies...This is for you Jeni
I told Jeni I would blog this recipe straight away. That was what, 4 days ago? Sorry, hope its not too late to add this recipe to your choc chip bake off. But I wanted to take a pic of these beautiful cookies to put on the blog cuz its so much nicer to see a pic of what you want to make. Don't you all agree? I took the batch to work yesterday and they were loved by all.
1 c. butter
2 c. white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp B.Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. choc chips
Ok, so of course just mix in regular cookie fashion. Hint: Cream butter and sugar together forEVER. Like 5 min. Then beat alot after the egg and vanilla addition too. And if you really wanna know, a great addition to this recipe to make them not just regular choc chip cookies is to add 4 oz of chopped maccas and then after the cookies are baked, dip in melted chocolate and place back on baking paper on cookie sheet and cool in fridge. Then remove and eat or store.
Another hint: Always remember that you can add more or less flour depending on the altitude, the weather...there is never a hard fast rule as to how much flour you add. I always do a test cookie and if there's too much or too little flour then I just change it up before I bake the whole lot. That way you're more guaranteed to end up with the perfect batch of cookies!
