I haven’t posted a food entry for a while. This is probably due to the fact that most of my food entries have been cocktail recipes, and being winter and pregnant I haven’t thought about any of these lately. (Actually, I think about cocktails a lot! Will have to invent some nonalcoholic ones at some stage.)
But what is good for a pregnant woman in winter is some warm chocolate chip cookies.
I dug out this recipe that is based on one I found on the Interwebs a while ago, and tweaked it to my liking.
- 200g softened butter
- 1 1/2 Cups sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 Cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100g (or as much as you can handle) chocolate chips/buttons/chopped
chocolate bars etc. I like to use dark chocolate chopped into chunks.
Preheat oven to 180° Celcius.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy then stir in the egg.
Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix with a wooden spoon.
When it comes together as a dry dough mixture, add the chocolate.
Use your hands to knead the mixture so it forms a ball of cookie dough.
Drop slightly-flattened balls of the cookie dough onto a tray. I do two batches one after the other for even cooking.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown on the edges.
Cool a little and voila! Teeth-rotting tummy-fattening wickedness.
