Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the outside. That's what these chocolate chip cookies are like! They are just so yummy-licious.
When I first started baking during home economics class in highschool, one of my first projects included making cookies. And, even though I wasn't quite as pleased with my efforts back then, some of my former classmates still seemed to love my cookie creations. I couldn't quite fathom why! Perhaps, the thing with homemade cookies is that they're almost always better than the packaged variety.
In any case, if you're looking for a simple but effective recipe for homemade classic chocolate chip cookies, do try this one out. I actually found the original recipe at the back of a Cadbury's chocolate chip packaging. Here you go ---
1. Preheat your oven to 160'C
2. Melt butter, the mix it with brown sugar and caster sugar. Cream them using an electric beater until they're light and fluffy.
3. Mix in the vanilla essence and egg.
4. Then, stir in the flour until combined.
5. Add the chocolate chops.
6. On a lightly greased cookie sheet / baking tray, place the dough mixture. You can use a teaspoon to scoop the mixture, then make it in to a small ball, and flatten a little before putting on the baking tray.
7. Bake in moderate over for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. I find that 10 minutes is usually enough, but it might depend on your oven.
