It's a really yummy cookie, which turns out chewy in the center with a crispy edge. The trick with these cookies is to take them out of the oven when the middle is still a little soft. The recipe calls for just chocolate chips but we love to put in half chocolate chips and half smarties. They are a big hit!
125g of soft unsalted butter
100g light brown sugar
125g caster sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1 tsp Vanilla
225 self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
100g choco chips
Pre-heat your oven to 180c and grease your baking tray.
Cream together your sugars and butter. Add the egg and vanilla, stir, add your flour and salt. Finally add your chocolate chips and your broken Smarties. Shape into balls and bake for 7-10 minutes or until lightly golden in colour and still a little soft in the middle.
I'm so happy that it's a long weekend. Ian has been revising all week and has had exams so it will be nice to relax with him a little.The weather is meant to be sunny so i'm hoping we can fit in a BBQ or two and a bonfire in the evening. I'm hoping for lots of time in the garden with an iced drink or two.
My parents may have found a young Lab to rescue so they might be getting him this weekend...Scary! I'm not sure how I feel about it all really. For me, it's waaay too soon since Jasper passed away but at the same time this dog needs a good home and we have lots of love to give. We'll shall see...
Have a great weekend.
