So somehow watching videos about the TMJ turned into searching foodgawker for recipes involving chocolate chips which then turned into me baking double chocolate chip cookies. So I bailed on cervical for 30 minutes to bake. And it’s perfect baking weather- which pretty much means it’s horrid weather for anything else. Which, I must admit, works for me at the moment seeing as the only thing I should be doing atm is studying.
These seemed remarkable easy. If you ignore the fact I pretty much used no butter and cut the flour to two cups to get the right consistency… oh and I ran out of plain flour so I used half self raising and cut out the baking soda. We’ll see how they turn out. I’m also pretty sure they are too close on the tray, but the oven is tiny and I couldn’t be bothered to do two batches. They appear to have merged into one giant cookie, but really, when is that a bad thing? Here is the original recipe:
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
250g butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
250g bittersweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 160ºC.
- Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
- Mix in vanilla essence and egg.
- Stir in flour and the cocoa powder.
- Add the bittersweet chocolate chips.
- Place teaspoons of mixture on greased baking t ray and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes.
These turned out to be amazing! Rich and chocolately- better when cold which is new in the land of cookies… One to try!
