Rainy Days and Baking Cookies


Chocolate Chip Cookies

            So I have been bound in the apartment for the last few days, so I thought to myself how best to pass the time? And then the answer came to me,.. Cookies.

          This is a simple recipe a friend of mine Mia gave me many a year ago and I have tweaked over the last while to my own taste. Personally I love them with white chocolate chips but you can adapt the flavour to anything you like, dark chocolate, mint, peanut butter, oatmeal and raisen or lemon and lime juice.

125g Butter

120g Unrefiened cane sugar

1 Egg

160g Semolina Flour

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

1 large bar of white chocolate.

-Preheat the oven to about 160 or 170 degrees.

-Mix the butter, egg and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.

-Mix the baking soda and the flour together and then add it to the mix.

-Bash the bar while it is still in the pack then pour it out onto a chopping board. Then with a large knife run through it a few times untill you get the chips the size you want. Mix these in and you are good to go.

-You can either spoon small portions straight onto a non stick tray. Or lay out a sheet of cling film and spoon some of the batter out onto the sheet. Then mould it out into a tube about the diameter of a golf ball. Wrap it up tight and pop it in the fridge for an hour or two. Then take it out and chop it into 2cm thick rings and bung it in the preheated oven.

-For cookies that are still sticky in the middle cook for about 11 minutes, a few more if you like them crunchier.

-Leave them to cool, then enjoy.
