This is just a very quick post about a recent experiment in my kitchen! I made chocolate chip cookies- using a recipe I threw together. I included soft brown sugar, for a caramel taste. I also added golden syrup to improve the chewiness. They turned out pretty well, with a slight crunch on the outside, but a gooey inside- just like Millie’s cookies! They are not perfect but I am very happy for my first try. I will definitely be developing this recipe to create the perfect chocolate chip cookies. Next time I might try white chocolate chips, as these are my favourite from Millie’s.
125g salted butter
125g soft brown sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
2 tsp vanilla
225g self raising flour
100g chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 180C and line two large baking trays.
2. Cream the butter, sugars and golden syrup.
3. Add in the egg and vanilla and cream slightly more.
4. Sift in the flour and add chocolate chips and stir in by hand.
5. Divide into 15 even sized balls and spread out across the baking sheets. Do not flatten them- they do this all by themselves! I used 3 small baking sheets and even then the cookies ran into each other. The ones that came out best was the tray that only had 3 cookies on, that had a lot of space between them
6. Bake for 12 minutes and allow to cool.
7. Enjoy with a glass of milk!
Do you have a cookie recipe you could share, or any improvements I could make on mine?
Until next time,
