So I have had my Kitchen Aid for less than 24 hours, and am having so much fun already 🙂
My boys are loving my new little assistant almost as much as I am, as so far I have made a lovely wholemeal and chia seeded loaf, Pancakes for breakfast, Protein bars (see recipe in archives) and these delicious cookies, that are simply melt in your mouth delicious!
I thought with it being December (cookie season) I would share this recipe first, so these are pretty simple and take all of 10 mins to prep and a further 10 minutes to bake.
Of course I used my kitchen aid but you can use any hand held mixer/beater for this.
So to get started first off preheat your oven to 180 Degrees C, and then go grab your Ingredients:
90 gram butter (melted and cooled – I just placed it in the microwave for 30 seconds)
70 gram white sugar
35 gram raw brown sugar
1 tsp Vanilla paste
160 gram plain flour
0.5 tsp Bicarbonate soda
pinch of salt
55 gram mixture of choc chips and chunks
Mix together the salt, Bicarbonate of Soda and the flour in a large bowl
In a new bowl cream the butter and sugars by beating until you achieve a creamy texture
Add the vanilla and Egg to the butter and sugar mixture, and beat on a low speed for about 20 seconds until combined
Add the flour mixture to the creamed sugars and mix until almost combined into a dough, add the chocolate chips & chunks and combine using a spatula
using your hands, bring the mixture to form a large ball
line 2 baking trays with baking paper
make 12 balls and place 6 on each baking tray
Bake for 7 – 10 minutes until the cookies look barely browned and cracked.
Place on a cooling tray and wait until cool (if you can!)
