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:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup castor sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
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
