Recipe: Donna Hay's Easy Choc Chip Cookies
Introduce your kids to the wonderful world of cooking with this child-friendly recipe from Donna Hay's cookbook Basics to Brilliance Kids.
125g unsalted butter (very soft but not melted)
⅔ cup (160g) brown sugar (for that chew-factor)
⅓ cup (75g) raw caster (superfine) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1½ cups (225g) plain (all-purpose) flour
¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of (baking) soda
200g dark or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
- Place the butter, sugars and vanilla in a bowl and, using a spatula, mix well to combine. Add the egg and mix well, then add the flour and baking soda and stir to combine. Add the chocolate and fold through.
- With clean hands (the fun part!) roll ⅓ cupfuls (80ml) of the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
- Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
- Bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until golden. Wearing oven gloves, remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool on the trays before sneaking a bite!
