Life got ahead of me again...like it tends to. No excuses apart from the fact I needed to prioritize squeezing in some fun, drinking and sleeping to ease my hard worked body and subsequently my dearest blog was forsaken.
To make up for the lack of attention however I present you with a damn fine recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Gooey and gorgeous I swear by them as a sure fire way to get you out of any hot spot :) I hope they make up for the weeks silence dear readers...
Chocolate chip cookies
125g butter (at room temp)
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
150g/1 cup chocolate chips/chopped dark chocolate
Pre-heat the oven to 180*C.
Grease and line 2 large baking trays.
Beat the butter and sugar with an electric beater until light and thick, add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
Sift the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients as well as the chocolate chips and fold together until you have a thick cookie dough.
Spoon dollops of the cookie dough into your palms, roll into balls about the size of large marbles and place on the baking sheets at least 5 centimetres apart as they will spread as they bake.
Bake in the oven for 8-9 minutes – they should still be slightly gooey in the middle when you take them out of the oven.
Allow to cool slightly before taking off the baking paper and transferring to a wire wrack to cool completely.
