Amidst the busy baking, I managed to spend some time with the little nephew last night to make some crispy chocolate chip cookies for his school today. Its supposedly “homework”, and boy was he oh so excited bout it.
I’ve never been one who liked cookies that were soft, except those from subway. Most soft cookies tasted “laohong” to me. Haha. Most of my friends loved crispy cookies as well. Very much like those from Famous Amos. I should think little kids too? So I proceeded to make these crispy chocolate chip cookies which happen to be a real hit amongst my friends and even customers who have ordered and reordered them.
For those who are interested, I’m sharing the recipe, because these are really good.
I took this from the kitchen magpie and modified it a little.
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of butter, softened
3/4 cups of white granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean
2 cups of chocolate chips
Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt. mix in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
Use a melon scoop to scoop balls of cookies out Onto a baking tray with at least 1.5cm space. They spread. Press the cookies down slightly and bake them in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 12mins or until golden brown.
Happy baking. 🙂
