Today I am revisiting a recipe I posted right back when I first started this blog. Looking back on it the pictures weren't great and it didn't get the exposure it deserved! This is my 'go to' cookie recipe. It's perfect when I have a sudden sweet tooth as they are so quick and easy to make. They are also great when there aren't any eggs in the house (this seems to happen A LOT! Does it happen to you too?).
Eggless Forked Chocolate Cookies (makes 12)
You will need:
- 4oz Margarine
- 2oz Caster Sugar/Superfine Sugar
- 4.5oz of Plain Flour / All purpose flour
- 1oz Chocolate Drinking Powder (Hot chocolate - I always use Cadburys. Don't use cocoa powder as it won't be sweet enough)
Pre-heat your oven to Gas mark 4, 180c or 350f. Simply beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add in your flour and chocolate powder and mix until all the ingredients are combined.
Grease your baking tray. Roll into medium sized balls (slightly smaller than a golf ball), place onto the tray leaving an inch or so between each dough ball. 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. Leave them to cool for 10 minutes and then ENJOY!!!
Perfect with a steaming mug of tea!
I hope that you make these! Do let me know if you make them : )
