Chocolate Chip Cookies

Again, one of those biscuits that really make ur day.. with a cup of coffee.. or tea.. or cold milk.. yummmmmm :)

This is what you need:

1 pack of chocolate chips
2 and 1/4 cup flour, or 320 gms
3/4 cup butter, at room temperature or 170 gms
3/4 cup white sugar, or 150 gms
3/4 cup brown sugar, or 100 gms
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla sugar
1 level tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 - 3 tbls cold milk


Do this:

1- cream together the butter with the sugar



2- add eggs, one by one, adding vanilla in between




3- sift together flour, soda and salt and add to the egg mix.. just blending in




4- add the choco bits and around 2 tbls cold milk. Do add the milk, it changes the texture of the cookies and u will note the difference.. I forgot to take a pic at this stage :)

5- drop spoon fulls on wax paper lined baking sheets and bake in preheated oven, for 12 minutes, or until golden below and light golden on top. They will spread out and become larger, so do give some space in between





6- enjoy :)

  3. Hi Toota :) I am SO sorry that I am replying so late.. I wonder how I missed it? Sorry! and no, wax paper is not needed.. there is enough butter in them to bake perfectly well on a good baking tray. But if ur tray is burnt or anything, then do put some cover - like wax paper or foil.

  6. Thanks for writing. Yes you could. Just be careful not to heat the stones too much. As soon as they are hot, reduce heat and dont bake them at too high or too long, otherwise they will turn out hard. Good luck. Do tell me, how it went.

  8. Naureen dear, baking powder would make them fluffy, which is not what we want :) We want them soft, yet firm and crunchy, hence the baking soad. I preheated the gas oven at 25 to 0 for around 5 minutes and reduced to 180-190.. but thats in my convection oven. Just make sure its reasonably hot before and medium low while baking. Dont keep the oven too hot while baking cookies, they get hard. And the top issue can be solved if as soon as ur cookies are slightly done below, u switch off the heat below and turn on top heat/grill on medium low.. Good luck :)
