Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.

Makes 24

Ingredients

  • 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.

Method

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.

Use a sift or sieve to get rid of lumps in the flour

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 12 per sheet

Arrange 12 cookies per sheet

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown on the edges.

Cool a little and voila! Teeth-rotting tummy-fattening wickedness.
