Happy Easter! Here, Have a Cookie.

April 05, 2015

"He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay." (Matthew 28:6)

 No egg hunting for me today. I am
quite ill since Friday. The only time I got out of bed was when I baked. IKR? Not feeling well but managed to bake? (insert rolling eyes emoticon).

I love baking. I love the mess it makes, the smell, the discipline on sticking to correct measurements. So last Friday, I got myself a new oven!

I made some chocolate chip cookies for me and my housemates. They loved it! They said it wasn't too sweet and was just right for their taste. These batch were my first soft batch cookies. And it was really fun making them. I tried mixing in other ingredients like Lotus Biscoff Spread and some walnuts. They tasted even better! Now to make up for my #TGIF and #DIYSaturday, here you go! My #TGIF for my oven and #DIYSaturday Cookies.

  • 200g unsalted butter, softened (14 tbsp)
  • 1 cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups plain flour (+ a few extra tbsp)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups chocolate chips/chunks (I used a combination of milk and dark chocolate, and the best quality chocolate you can afford will result in the best cookies)

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line a few trays with baking paper.
  • Put the butter into the bowl of your stand mixer and place the bowl in the preheating oven. Leave it just for a few minutes, until the butter starts to melt around the outside.
  • Set it aside to cool while you weigh up the rest of your ingredients.
  • Once the butter has cooled, add both sugars and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla and eggs, beating between each addition just until incorporated.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and sea salt to the bowl. Beat on a low speed, just until combined. Add more flour, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a ball - you don't want it sticking to the sides of the bowl.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to drop the dough onto prepared baking sheets, allowing room for spreading.
  • Bake one tray of cookies at a time, for 9 - 11 minutes. take them out when they have little brown spots on the top. Allow to cool a little and enjoy!
