Cookie Cuteness

Cookies are beyond delicious that is just one of the rules of life. They are so easy to make everyone should try it at least once. Here's my recipe, it's my favorite thing ever. Warm cookies with a tasty glass of semi skimmed milk is what makes childhood.

I never used the white chips

125g unsalted butter
100g granulated sugar
75g soft brown sugar
1 egg
2tsbp Vanilla extract

150g plain flour
½tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
Chocolate chips

Butter is the root of all glory
First you have to melt down the butter in a pan on a medium heat, while it is melting you mix the sugars together in a bowl. While this is happening you mix the sugars together in a bowl. 

This smells like heaven

You then poor the butter liquid over the sugar and stir it together until it’s a sticky granulated mess.

See what I mean about that vanilla

 Then add a medium sized egg and vanilla essence I use tablespoons but if you don’t like vanilla use less.  I’m a vanilla fiend.  Add a splash of cooking oil, less than a teaspoon, it gives the cookies a slightly chewy consistency 

It doesn't look much but gosh its good

Then add all the flour and mix until consistent, it should be slightly doughy. Then mix in all the chocolate chips, put in as many as you want.

These are a bit close

Oil two baking trays and using a teaspoon put heaped dollops of the mixture onto the trays. Spread the mixture out leaving as much space in between as possible, these cookies spread out a lot. Then cook at 4 on a gas oven for eight to ten minutes or until they are golden brown.

See monsters
Then take them out and no matter how tempting leave them too cool on the trays for ten minutes. Then scrap them up with a spatula and leave to cool fully on a rack. Apart from the ridiculously hot one you can’t resist, have that one with a glass of cold milk and smile. All is good in the world.  

I wish camera buttons where on the left so I could use my right hand to do this
