It was early December and we just finished remodelling the kitchen (might make a post about that soon!) and I was very keen on using the new fancy oven we installed. I believe this was the very first thing I made, I just googled for some nice and quick cookies, found this recipe, and gave it my own little twist.
These are very easy to make, and when I say easy, I mean ea-sy. My boyfriend made these last week and did a pretty good job and it was his first time baking. Ever. He did double the amount of choc chips ‘by accident’ but they were still pretty darn good for a first ever attempt.
makes about 12-15 cookies:
– 250gr (2 cups) all purpose flour
– 150gr (3/4 cup) sugar
– 115gr (1/2 cup) plant butter (I like Alpro’s!)
– (1/4 cup) chocolate chips
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 2tbs plant milk
– 1/4 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
2. In a bowl, mix together the sugar and butter. Butter on room temperature will work best – so leave it on the counter an hour prior to baking if you have the time (or patience). Add the vanilla extract.
3. In another bowl, mix the flour with the salt and baking powder.
4. Add half of the dry ingrediënts with the butter – sugar – vanilla mixture. Knead until a dough starts to form.
5. Add the rest of the dry ingrediënts and plant milk. Knead until you get a crumbly dough.
6. Add the chocolate chips and make sure you knead it well into the dough.
7. Roll the dough into little balls, I like mine as big as pingpong balls. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and press them down lightly. Let them bake in the oven for 10-12min. They’re going to be mushy when you’ve just taken them out of the oven, just let them cool down for a while and they’ll be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
I reckon you can make these with whatever you have sitting in your cupboard. I plan on making these with a peanut butter filling. Or with pecans mixed into the dough. Or with some lemon zest. Yes, this cookie is gon’ go places.
