Spring Forward and Forked Cookies :D

Hello everyone :D

Here in the UK we are all getting used to the spring time change. Unfortunately we've lost an hour of our precious time but it is feeling like Spring more and more each day and I'm welcoming it with open arms!!!... Have you noticed the sudden influx of birds, flies and blossom? Such natural beauty is everywhere and I feel Spring highlights that to all of us...it opens our eyes.

Something I would like to share with you guys today is my favourite cookie recipe. Me and my boyfriend fancied something sweet whilst at his house today..but he didn't have any eggs. Nearly all of us have had this dilemma at least once!. These cookies only have 4 ingredients so they are super easy to make and don't require any egg whatsoever (great especially if you are allergic!)

You will need:
  • 4oz Margarine
  • 2oz Caster Sugar/Superfine Sugar
  • 4.5oz of Plain Flour / All purpose flour
  • 1oz Chocolate Drinking Powder (Hot chocolate)
This is the hot chocolate powder I use. Don't use Cocoa as it wont be sweet enough.

Method:
Pre-heat your oven to Gas mark 4, 180c or 350f. Weigh and mix together the sugar and margarine until it looks smooth like this....

Then weigh and add the flour and chocolate powder and mix until it looks roughly like this...

Grease up a baking try and roll the dough into medium sized balls (we make 12 perfectly out of this single batch). Wet a fork with cold water and flatten the dough balls softly but not too much. Make sure the fork is wet for each dough ball as this gives the cookie moisture!



Bake for 10-12 minutes for a soft and chewy cookie OR 12-15 minutes for a crunchy cookie. Either way leave them to cool and harden for 20 minutes and ENJOY!!!



I absolutely love cookies...especially the chewy/gooey ones! I've tried so many different recipes but many of them have been disappointing. I would love it if you could recommend any cookie recipes you have tried and tested!!

Can't wait to hear from you all...
