It is time for me to share my cookie recipe on the Virtual Cookie Exchange. Firstly I would like to thank Carol from Jut Let Me Quilt for hosting us. She does a fantastic job organizing us. Now if you haven't see the previous day's blogger's here is the full schedule.
So my recipe for this year is a long time Favourite. I know I have been making these cookies since I was a teenager. Now they are generally my Chocolate Chip Cookies but the base cookie dough is so adaptable you can use different ingredients to flavour you cookies. When I fancy a batch and don't have chocolate chips in the house I have swapped them for something else. It is the same with the nuts change to ones you like or what ones you have on hand. I have used almonds, walnuts and pecans.
So here is my recipe.
Chocolate Chip Cookies Makes approx 30 cookies depending on the size you want.
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp bi carb of soda
250g butter soften
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
100-200g choc bits
1 cup nuts chopped
Preheat oven to 180 degree. Sift flour, bi carb,and salt. Cream butter, the two sugars and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and the sifted ingredients. This is the basic cookie dough.
Fold in the nuts and choc bits.But like I said earlier these last two ingredients can be change to give you different cookies. This recipe is perfect to use what you have in the pantry. Most of the time I have the base ingredients in mine.
Spoon on to greased baking trays and bake for 10- 12 minutes.
Once done they should be a light golden brown colour. Cool on a rack before storing in a cookie jar or tin.
They are great with a cuppa as a little snack.
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do. Please visit everyone else and enjoy their recipes too.
