Shaken not stirred er got milk ?! lol Photo idea stolen from Tumblr ^_^ "
Every time I saw some blogging friends cookie(s) pix , I couldn't help but drool and sigh lol
I've been craving for it !
So I baked some and I used Claire Clark recipe again .....
One of the easiest and foolproof cookie recipe !
But then most cookies are ....
Er I'm one of those who can make a hash of such a simple recipe -____-''
Even a simple cookies recipe , I might say ?! lol
Not this time though as was the first time for that matter ; that's why I tried this recipe again just in case the first time was just a fluke ! hee hee
It's crispy , chewy , chocolaty and with added extra layer of flavor from peanut butter chips ....
What more could you ask for ?!
A keeper in my opinion .....
Chocolate Chip Cookies - recipe from Claire Clark's Indulge book
185 grams / 6 1/2 oz plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt
125 grams / 4 1/2 oz softened unsalted butter
165 grams soft dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 medium egg , lightly beaten
225 grams /8 oz dark chocolate ( 55-70 % ) , chopped ( I used 150 grams white chocolate , 100 grams peanut butter chips and 50 grams bittersweet chocolate chips )
* Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F . Sift flour , baking soda and salt twice and set aside .
* Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy ; add vanilla and mix well ; add egg a little at a time , beating well after each addition . Add dry ingredients , on low speed , just to bring the ingredients together enough to form a dough , a very soft and slightly sticky dough ; do not overwork . Mix in the chocolate .
* Scoop out a tablespoonful of the mixture to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment ; bake at the center of the oven for 10 - 12 ( I baked mine for 15 minutes ) minutes until golden brown and slightly puffed ; remove and leave to cool on the baking sheets .
