Chocolate Chip Cookies #WrenFamilyFavourites

Chocolate Chip Cookies #WrenFamilyFavourites
Chocolate chip cookies are one of those recipes that is really easy to do, especially if you’re not that confident when it comes to baking. Also, they taste amazing once you’re done or part way through if you’re partial to a bit of cookie dough too.

While this recipe hasn’t  exactly been handed down through the generations, it is the sort of baking that I do on a regular basis because they are so well received. It is very rare that we have many left after a few days and a few pots of tea!

I agree with Wren when they say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially when you love food as much as we do. I’ve always been involved in the kitchen and preparation of food, setting and clearing the table at Christmas dinner for 21 on one occasion and even having a career in the hospitality trade. It’s obvious that those experiences have shaped me in some way which may not be noticeable but are there. This is where the #WrenFamilyFavourites campaign comes in. Their aim is to discover recipes which have been passed or those which are firm favourites in your family. You can read more about the campaign by clicking here and also see some of the other blogger recipes on the site too.
INGREDIENTS:
Note: I only know the weights in imperial as that’s how I was taught to bake.
  • 4oz of soft butter or margarine (any will work so long as it’s soft)
  • 2.5oz of caster sugar
  • 2.5oz of soft dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (not the essence)
  • 5oz of plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of fine salt
  • 2 packets of chocolate chips
  • Buttered and greased baking trays (I use two to have as many cookies in the oven as possible)
METHOD:
  • Preheat oven to 200C and grease your baking tray(s)
  • In a large bowl measure out the butter and both sugars, then cream together till the resemble the first picture below.
  • Beat in the egg – at this point it will look like the mixture has split but don’t panic it will come back with enough mixing.
  • Add the vanilla extract and mix this in too.
  • In a separate bowl measure out the flour, baking powder and the salt.
  • In small batches sieve the dry ingredients into the mix and beat and until all the dry mix is combined
  • Do the above until there is no dry mixture left
  • Mix in the chocolate chips
  • Spoon out onto the greased baking trays (I find a tablespoon measure works best here) but leave some space as the cookies will spread out when they bake.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
  • Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack
  • Once cooled, enjoy with a cup of tea!

I’d like to say a big thank you to Wren for including me in this campaign and to my family for always eating my baking!
