I was baking again today (for my maths class, requested by Hollie Martin) and my sister and I found a new recipe so I thought I’d share it with you!
250g plain flour
1/2 tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda
170g unsalted butter, melted
200g dark brown soft sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
325g chocolate chips
Step 1: realise you don’t have chocolate chips, argue with your sister about whether you can be bothered to walk to the shop and decide you can bash up some chocolate buttons instead.
Step 2: preheat your oven to 170 degrees and line your baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Step 3: make sure you’re listening to some banging tunes – I recommend Future Hearts or an All Time Low/McBusted/5 Seconds of Summer shuffle.
Step 4: measure out the flour and bicarbonate of soda and put it to one side. The recipe says add 1/2 a teaspoon of salt but we ignored this step.
Step 5: measure out the butter, send your sister to go melt it down while you measure out the sugar and then wonder why the autofocus has stopped working on your camera whilst trying to get a picture.
Step 6: mix together, adding the egg, the egg yolk and the vanilla extract and mixing it all together. Add the already measured out flour and bicarbonate of sofa and mix it all together to make a light, creamy mixture.
Step 7: put all the chocolate buttons you can find into a few layers of plastic bags and bash them with a steak hammer that you found in the kitchen. Or be better prepared and buy chocolate chips.
Step 8: add the chocolate chips to the mixture and (no surprise) mix them in.
Step 9: use what might be a fancy ice cream scoop but what we use to measure out stuffing for a Sunday Roast to make the cookie dough balls. This made us 15 cookies but I needed 16 for school so we scraped together a last one.
Step 10: put your cookies in the oven – the recipe says 15-17 minutes but we left them for a total of 21 minutes and a few more minutes probably would have made them a little crunchier on the outside but I got bored of waiting, if I’m perfectly honest.
Step 11: take the cookies out of the oven and leave them for a few minutes, transferring them to a cooling tray and eating at your leisure.
I must confess – I haven’t actually tried these cookies yet as I only just got enough to give to my maths class tomorrow but I’m planning to make them again over the weekend to share with my family and they look really good, I’m very excited about eating them.
I’ve got really into baking and cooking recently, let me know if you want me to write any more recipes by telling me in the comments!
Thank you for reading,
