Cheer me up choc chip cookies

Yesterday was just a bit ‘blah’. Nothing drastic. No emergencies. Just a regular First World average day. And I knew of only one remedy that would hit the spot.

Cookies.

I was recommended the Meet Me at Mike’s Best Ever Choc Chip Cookies recipe ages ago by someone, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. I had all the ingredients except the choc chips, so I went to the supermarket and only realised I’d left my wallet at work when I was at the checkout. Sigh. I almost gave up there and then. But I didn’t. Obviously.

125g salted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 small eggs
1 or 2 drops of vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups self raising flour
250g choc chips

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the sugars until pale.
Beat in the eggs and the vanilla until nicely mixed.
Beat in the sifted flour until mixed through.
Fold through the choc chips.

Grease or line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll dough into teaspoon sized balls and pop onto the tray. Bake for ten to twelve minutes. If you like them chewy don’t let them brown. They will crisp up as they cool down. makes about 48.

Apply to the mouth.

I don’t know why I make cookies more often, they are just so easy. And delicious.

I was wondering why they weren’t flatter, and then I remembered the self raising flour. Do you use self raising flour for cookies? I might try plain flour instead next time for a flatter, more traditional cookie.

They certainly hit the spot.
