The good part is that it required extremely basic ingredients. This recipe of cookies, when are baked, gives such a homely and bakery like aroma. That fragrance is half the fun of eating these cookies.
The richness increases when you dip it into a glass of milk and then eat. A Monday morning’s breakfast will make your whole day!
Starting off with the recipe,
1 cup all purpose Flour
1/2 cup softened and unsalted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon cornflour
First, together butter, sugar, cornflour and vanilla. Once it is mixed and fluffy, place a sieve.
Sieve in flour, baking powder, baking soda into the cream butter and sugar.
Then gently incorporating the flour into the butter. After a dough is formed ,add the chocolate chips. Add a little milk if required.
Take small sized balls and press them into circular cookies. After all cookies are shaped, refrigerate them for 20 to 30 minutes until the butter hardens.
The reason for shaping first and then refrigerating is so that when the cookies go in the oven for baking, they don’t immediately melt ,forming a huge cookie. If the dough is refrigerated, then while shaping it would anyways become warm because of your hands. Whereas cold cookie is placed inside the oven ,the butter and sugar melts evenly.
Bake them on a greased tray with parchment paper in a pre-heated oven. Bake at 170 degrees for 15 minutes and at 180 degrees for five minutes. At the end ,the edges should be golden brown. Let them cool completely and enjoy!
