Chocolate Chip Cookies



Ingredients

125g Butter
70g Castor sugar
70g Brown sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
1 Egg
260g Self-raising flour
130g Chocolate chips (Add more if you like more choc chips)
(Original recipe also put in 60g chopped walnuts which I have omitted coz my kids dont like walnuts)

Method
1. Pre-heat oven to 180C.
2. Sift the flour, set aside.
3. Beat butter, essence and sugars using mixer until smooth.
4. Add egg and beat until well combined.
5. Stir in sifted flour and the remaining ingredients.
6. Take rounded teaspoons of mixture and roll into balls.
7. Place balls about 4cm apart on slightly greased oven trays or line with baking sheet.
8. Bake in pre heated oven for 15 minutes or until browned.
9. Cool in trays for short while and transfer to wire rack for cooling.

Rgds, Connie

Hi Connie,

Do you think I can omit the brown sugar & replace it with castor sugar instead?

Thanks.

hi Chris welcome to KC

if i can reply for connie first.

i think u can replace with castor sugar but not one for one. castor sugar like any white sugar is processed and is sweeter than brown unrefined sugar. so put less of it in

Brown sugar also adds flavor to the cookie so to try it out.

Hi, I tried to bake the chocolate chip cookies and like everyone in the forum said, the recipe was good and the cookies turned out ok. However I have a question... why do my cookies turn soft after a few hours and the next day? It's not as crunchy as when they were freshly baked. What did I do wrong?

Just curious ... were your cookies 100% cooled before you stored them in air tight containers?

Yes they were. I put them in front of a fan to cool off before transferring to a plate cuz I had to re-use my baking tray. Also cuz my son couldn't wait to eat them Smile

Hi hippomama

You should cool the cookies on a wire rack instead of plate as vapour will form underneath cookies on the plate . Another point is not to stack cookies on top of each other during cooling process.

To crisp your soft cookies, just re-bake at 180C - 190C for 5 mins. Then cool it completely before you store it.

Hope this helps.

Connie
