Cookies + Ice Cream = Bliss

Standard

Hope all of you are enjoying the Cookie Fest on The Bakealogue as am back with another must-have recipe for all …. Chocolate Chip Cookies! I always tend to have them plain but as it’s so hot in Dubai just had to add a dollop of ice cream in the middle and turn it into an ice cream sandwich today *nom nom* … oh and that’s my kitchen window you see in the pic .. I’ve got something about baking in every corner for inspiration which you too shall see as time goes on 🙂 … Coming back to the recipe, there are quite a few chocolate chip recipes out there but this one always works for me as the ingredients are basic and the result delicious! So do give it a try and let me know how you get on …. Happy Baking!

Ingredients:
All Purpose Flour: 1 and 1/2 cup
Unsalted Butter (at room temperature): 4 oz
Caster Sugar: 3/4 cup
Egg: 1
Baking Powder: 1/4 tsp
Bicarbonate Soda: 1/2 tsp
Vanilla Essence: 1 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp
Chocolate Chips: 1 cup

Method:
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line your baking tray with parchment paper.
In a bowl, beat together the unsalted butter and caster sugar until it forms a creamy mixture.
Add the egg followed by vanilla essence and beat again until all ingredients are well-combined.
In a dry bowl, sift together the all purpose flour, salt, baking powder, and bicarbonate soda. Mix the chocolate chips in the flour.
Add the flour to the batter and mix until the batter starts to form a dough.
Scoop out your cookies on your baking tray leaving space between each one as the cookies will spread while baking.
Bake the cookies in your pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius until the edges start to turn golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes and then transfer them to your wire rack for cooling. The cookies will appear soft when out of the oven but will harden during the cooling process.

    • Glad to hear it Tahira! Baking time usually varies depending on your oven.. as soon as the edges turn golden brown, take the cookies out … they will be soft at the time but will harden as they cool down … should take approximately 10 mins if your oven heats up like mine does 🙂 … good luck and lemme know how ypu get on …

    • Thanks for the feedback Tahira… there can be a number of reasons for the cookies spreading such as overmixing of butter and sugar, a really hot oven etc … but your solution is right as chilling the dough does prevent it from spreading … or what I do is just shape them in balls and place in the oven … that way they still maintain a good shape even if they do spread 🙂

      • Baked these again today with a slight twist. Did not add choc chips at all. Added a jam Center on some cookies. And baked in a muffin baking pan to contain the spreading. And added peanut butter to the other half of the batter… Both jam cookies and peanut butter cookies turned out good. kept the batter in the fridge for a bit, that helped prevent the spreading too.
