Chocolate chip cookies

Who can resist chocolate chip cookies ? Whenever I pass by Famous Amos, I feel like buying the whole shop! Anyway, yesterday after the gum paste session, I baked some chocolate chip cookies for my daughter (and myself.. ;-) ). I got the recipe from an old book and just reduce the sugar content.

Here’s the recipe, this cookies are crispy on the outside, soft and chewy when you bite into it.

Ingredients :

2 2/3 cups of all purpose flour (sieve)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar (sieve if there are big clumps)

1 cup unsalted butter, soften to room temperature. (if using salted butter, omit the salt)

2 large eggs

2 teaspoon vanilla essence

2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup chopped walnut (if you wish)

Method :

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the two types of sugar. Cream the butter and sugar until white and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Then fold in the flour. At this point, you might want to mix using your hand since the dough is lumpy and will strain your mixer. After the dough is well mix, stir in the chocolate chips and nut. Take a tablespoon and shape into a ball, arrange on your tray. Leave about an inch space between the cookies. The cooking time is about 10 minutes.

I made this recipe…but not sure why my dough was very goey/watery and I was not able to use hand to roll them into balls, but i used spoon to make drops. It’s in the oven now, so let’s see what happens.
