Hi all as promised here is Fran’s chocolate chip cookie recipe from the baking day. They didn’t spread that much on the baking sheet. I re-rolled some of the cookies to make slightly less than 30 (probably around 25) as the first batch weren’t flattened down very well so stayed as cookie balls rather than nice, flat, round cookies!
Top Tip – Don’t cook any longer than 15 minutes maximum as I burnt some and the attendees were none too happy that THEIR cookies were burnt! They do harden up when cooled.
Ingredients Makes 30
115g butter, softened
115g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
225g plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
However many chocolate chips you’d like
1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
2. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the egg, a little at a time, beating well between each addition.
3. Sift in the flour, baking powder and cocoa and add the chocolate chips. Mix well with a wooden spoon to form a dough.
4. Roll with your hands into 30 balls. Place on a baking sheet and flatten. Leave a gap between them as they will spread. Bake for 15 minutes and then cool them on a wire rack.
