Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Chocolate chip cookies recipe with photos, ingredients and instructions:
This chocolate chip cookies recipe is so easy to bake and makes a delicious treat. It makes about two dozen and has been kindly provided by Stacy Adimando from her cookie recipe book The Cookiepedia. We have substituted her measurements of cups to provide the grams for our readers' convenience. Her top tip when baking is to chill the dough for 1 to 2 hours or overnight prior to baking if you want thicker and chewier treats. Another tip recommends using chunks for those who prefer goeey biscuits since they melt better during baking.
The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies
Stacy introduces her love for these biscuits by saying:
Everyone has a different opinion about what makes the perfect one. None of us are wrong! You can transform it from soft to chewy and chunky to crisp with a few simple variations.
This version has a deeper, molasses flavour and a softer texture thanks to the addition of brown sugar. Watching a few plump up through the oven window is an unbeatable way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookies
When compiling the ingredients we have changed them slightly to make shopping in the UK much easier.
160g all-purpose flour
Half a teaspoon baking soda
Half a teaspoon salt
120g unsalted butter at room temperature
90g light brown sugar
One large egg
Three quarters of a teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions to make Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350F
Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a big bowl and stir. Set aside.
Cream the butter and sugars for several minutes, until they look light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until just combined. Add the flour mixture right into the butter mixture. Mix on low speed until they are incorporated. Stir in the choccie.
Go down the line dropping tablespoon sized balls of dough onto parchment paper lined sheets. Leave about two inches between them so they have plenty of room to spread. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through baking.
Remove from the oven and whilst still on the rack cool for a few minutes before lifting to prevent them falling apart. If you do decide to eat them hot from the oven as a treat please take care not to burn yourself.
Alternatives in Cookiepedia include peanut brittle and sea salt or pistachios.
