Try This: Original Chocolate Chip Cookies

I absolutely love this recipe. I've always bought Chocolate Chip cookies from shops, and i've never been 100% satisfied with the taste and/or quality. I've found most of them to be a little too dry.

These little beauties are just right! They're soft and moist on the inside and hard on the outside. Not only that, but they're also quick and easy to make and quite cost effective ( the recipe makes 30-35 cookies) which would be perfect as a daily school/office snack.

Here's what you'll need:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons desicated coconuts {optional}
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups hazelnuts, toasted and roughly chopped {optional}

1. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder, then add the coconut, chocolate chips and hazelnuts tot he butter mixture and mix to combine.

3. Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto greased baking trays and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the buiscits are golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes then transfer to wire racks to further cool.
 Oven temperature 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4 

In this recipe, i stuck to the original recipe and didn't add any coconut or hazelnut. You could always tweak this recipe as you please and add/delete ingredients according to what you and your family like. 

Make this and let me know how they turn our for you! Bon appetite!
