I have a special recipe to share with you today. It's for my favourite ever choc chip cookies. I LOVE shortbread, and these cookies are like a cross between a shortbread biscuit and a chocolate chip cookie. Heaven!! And they're super easy to make :)
Shortbready Choc Chip Cookies
- 200g ( 7 oz) butter (that's unsalted butter folks - the real stuff not margarine)
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1 tspn vanilla essence
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1/2 tspn baking powder
- 150g (5.3 oz ) chocolate chips
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, icing sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy.....
Slowly and gently beat in the flour, almond meal and baking powder until it sort of comes together. At this point it will look mostly crumbly.....
Add the choc chips and then use your hands to bring the mixture together into a smooth dough.
Take tablespoon fulls of the mixture and form into a rough disc, and place onto a baking paper lined baking tray
Bake cookies in a pre-heated 180 C (356 F) oven for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly golden
Cool on a wire rack - if you can wait that long!!!! lol
Thank you for joining us in the kitchen today. We'd love to hear about YOUR favourite cookies!
