How was your weekend?
This week I want to begin talking about Michelle, a friend I met last year in Oxford and who makes wonderful cookies. Thinking about her (she’s not here anymore) my husband and I decided to make cookies some weeks ago. They were so good that we have already repeated the recipe two more times…
Try them! they are delicious!
The ingredients are: 220g of flour, 7g baking powder, 100g butter (a little bit melted), 90g brown sugar, 50g white sugar, 1 egg, 1 pinch of salt, 100g chocolate chips (you can use, as we did, a mix of white and dark chocolate)
How to make them:
1) Mix the two types of sugar and the butter with a spoon or a spatula.
2) Add the egg already beaten (not too much) to the dough.
3) Add the flour, the baking powder and the chocolate chips. Mix all these ingredients with your hands forming a ball like in picture 1.
4) Cover the dough with kitchen wrap and leave it in the fridge for an hour.
5) Preheat the oven at 200º. Form small balls with the mass and put them on an oven tray (remember either to cover the oven tray with oven paper or with oil and a bit of flour). When you have them there, smash them gently to form the cookie shape as you can see in picture 2.
6) Bake for 10-12min depending on the oven. They need to be golden but soft if you touch them, as when they cool down they will harden.
Tip: when you put them in the baking tray, try to separate them because they will grow inside the oven.
As you can see, I have decided to share with you some recipes as well as craft projects every week. At the same time that I’m learning to cook you can discover the new recipes with me.
Enjoy your afternoon tea with these fantastic cookies 😉
