Chocolate chip cookies 2




The recipe is adapted from the book  'What 's cooking chocolate'.  This is sure  to be a favourite as the basic recipe which can be used to make several variations. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup soft margarine
  • 1/2 brown sugar (in case you don't have use caster sugar)
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla flavouring
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup ( 125 grams)  chocolate chips
Method:
  1. Lightly grease baking trays.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
  3. Place tablespoonfuls of the mixture on the baking trays, spacing them well apart to allow for spreading during cooking.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven, 190C/375F , for 10 - 12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.
  5. Using a palette knife  transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Variations

  • For Choc & Nut cookies , add 1/2 cup of hazelnuts to the basic mixture.
  • For Double Choc cookies , beat in 40 grams of melted dark chocolate.
  • For White Chocolate chip cookies, use white chocolate instead of the dark chocolate chips.
