Choc Chip Cookies

You may find this hard to believe but sometimes I actually bake something that is not a cupcake. I mean cupcakes are great and all, but a girl needs some variation in her life. So a while back I baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies. To me these cookies were perfection - soft texture, slightly chewy, lots of chocolate chips and some walnuts for a bit of crunch. So if that sounds like your idea of a good choc chip cookie then read on...

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies (Bringing Home the Baking by Quincella C. Geiger)
Makes 48 - 72 cookies depending on scoop size

2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp bi-carb soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate chips (I replaced this with more milk/white chocolate chips)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (I used walnuts)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Combine flour, bi-carb and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix on low speed until well blended. Stir in chips and walnuts.
  4. Measure dough with a cookie/ice-cream scoop and place on baking paper lined baking trays. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Leave cookies on trays until completely cooled.

Ya know... I wasn't really impressed with basic chocolate chip cookies UNTIL I started obsessively baking cupcakes. After a while, allll the crazy cupcake experiments started to wear on me and basic chocolate chip cookies became the goal. They are like the comfort food of desserts.

Yum! They look lovely!

Choc Chip! Mmmmmm

I like walnuts. I reckon these could be good and make up for my cupcakes that weren't choc chip! :P

Your rating of them being perfection makes them sound too good!

PS. My word verification is sukey...hehehe
