My creative space: Production line

This week has been all about baking and hardly at all about sewing.  My husband's birthday necessitated a chocolate mud cake early in the week.  Then some batches of muffins and a fruit loaf later I was up to a double batch of chocolate chip cookies today.

Why?  Baking for the Red Hill Kindergarten Fair this weekend. 

After lunch the little man and I set up a cookie production line.

Yummy, buttery, sugary batter...

Teaspoonfuls ready for baking

Ten minutes later - warm, buttery, chocolatey goodness...

That's what fifty chocolate chip cookies look like in a pile.

All packaged up ready for sale.

But don't worry, the double batch means there is plenty left over for the family.  I'm not going to all that effort just to give them all away!

Recipe was straight off the packet of chocolate chips:

125g butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup castor sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg
1 1/2 cups SR flour
3/4 cup choc chips

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. 
Add vanilla essence and egg, mix well. 
Add flour until all combined, lastly add chocolate chips.
Drop teaspoonfuls onto baking paper lined trays, leaving space for spreading. 
Bake in moderate oven for 10-15 minutes. 
Place on wire rack to cool.
Makes approx. 30

Sharing over here today!

Yum, baking about 4 dozen coookies myself tonight, but that is just to feed my 4 children for the next couple of days plus a weekend sleepover for the twins. Delicious, it's so much fun, love Posie

And packaged up beautifully too. I would buy them in a heartbeat, but I wouldn't want to unwrap them! Or maybe I would...

Just quietly, next time you make a batch, substitute brown sugar for the caster sugar - it TOTALLY rocks. x
