Hey guys, it’s been a crazy two weeks! All my birthday celebrations have led to delayed posts but it’s all worth it, my trip to Amsterdam shall be up at some point this week and for now you can enjoy this homemade recipe I created for chocolate chip and raisin cookies 🍪🍪
Chocolate chip and raisin cookies
225g caster sugar
300g self-raising flour (sifted)
200g of butter
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp of baking powder
100g-200g chocolate bar broken up into chunks or chocolate chips 🍫
Add the sugar and melted butter in a bowl and mix together – a wooden spoon is fine, no need for a whisk.
Sift the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips at this stage if you’re making chocolate chip cookies.
Mix together using your hand. Once you get a dough texture, add the egg and knead using your hand again. This bit gets messy 😋
Spread some butter onto a baking tray. Take some of the dough, roll into ball then flatten a little. Keep them on the small side as they spread out during baking. Also, don’t keep biscuits close to each other otherwise they will get stuck together.
Place in the oven and bake at 160C, gas 3 for 10-20 mins. The bigger the cookies, the longer they’ll take to cook. They’re ready when the edges are a golden brown colour.🍪🍪
