Having just finished reading Michele Gorman's Match Me If You Can, I was delighted to discover that there are some recipes at the back of the book. Some authors make it so easy joining in with the #readcookeat challenge !
I chose to recreate Sissy's Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe in the book is adapted from Tollhouse and I gave it my own twist too.
Instead of using just choc chips, I used up the end of a bar of dark chocolate and also the end of a pack of gooey, chewy sesame honey snaps. Double yum !
Sissy's Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 & 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda (I used 1tsp baking powder and 1tsp bicarb)
1 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup chopped nuts (I used sesame snaps instead)
Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a bowl.
Whip up the butter in a separate bowl.
Add the granulated and brown sugar, and the vanilla.
Mix in the eggs.
Add the chocolate chips and nuts/sesame snaps.
Give it all a final mix. Fight off the kids who are already trying to eat it.
Dollop teaspoon sized balls on foil covered baking sheets.
Bake at 180° for 10-12 minutes.
I bet the tin won't stay full for long - they're totally moreish !
