There is nothing nicer than the delicious aroma of baking cookies on a cold winters day. This is a recipe I find on the Taste website a while ago. It has definitely been a hit in our family.
You will need:
- 150g softened butter
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cups plain flour
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate bits
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate bits
- Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick paper. Beat 150g softened butter, 1/2 cup caster sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and well combined. Beat in 1 egg.
- Stir in 1 3/4 cups plain flour in two batches. Stir in 1/2 cup dark choc bits and 1/2 cup milk choc bits until evenly distributed. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Press down slightly.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light golden and cooked. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
THE NEST NOTES: You can substitute any additive to this recipe. On occasions when we have not had chocolate we substituted and gave them new names. We have added sprinkles (Princess fairy cookies) or sultanas (lumpy rock cookies) or even lollies such as smarties (clown cookies).
