I thought I would share this recipe with you as thanks for your support and friendship. I have been working on this recipe and I think I've nearly got it right! This is my own recipe and one that only my new family members have been blessed to enjoy. Tomorrow it is my turn to make morning tea for everyone at church so I think a cinnamon teacake and these cookies will go down well. I hope you will get as much satisfaction out of it as my husband has in the past few days.
Preheat oven to 180C (356F) if you like fudgy OR 210C (410F) if you like harder cookies. Alternatively you can extend the cooking time to 15mins instead of raising the heat. My oven is permanently fan-forced and these are the temperatures I use.
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
Serves: Makes about 16 largish or 32 smallish
1/2cup Self-raising flour
1cup Plain flour (All purpose)
1/2cup Rich cocoa powder
1/2cup White sugar
1/2cup Brown sugar (firmly packed into the cup measure)
1 Egg lightly whisked
150g Butter - diced (room temperature or slightly softened)
1splash Vanilla Essence
1cup Choc chips of your choice (I use 1/3cup dark, 1/3cup milk and 1/3 cup white)
- Put flour, cocoa and sugar into a mixing bowl and whisk
- Add egg, butter and vanilla and mush with hands until blended
- Add choc chips and continue mushing
- Dampen hands and roll portions of mixture, place on a baking tray with paper, and flatten slightly
- Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven but leave on tray to cool. (Note: they might not get a chance to cool!) They will seem very soft and under cooked but they do firm up.
