Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is a very yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
We tried this recipe because we were having a poetry tea party. I will tell you a bit about it in another post. These are such yummy cookies - you should really try them!

Chocolate Chip Cookies:

250 g butter
250 ml brown sugar
1 egg
550 ml cake flour, sifted
7,5 ml baking powder
200 g chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
100 g chopped nuts (Macadamia nuts, pecan) optional

Preheat oven to 180 C and grease two baking trays. Place the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Add the flour, baking powder, chocolate chips and nuts to the butter mixture. Stir, using a wood spoon until the mixture forms a sof dough. Drop tablespoons of the mixture onto the tray and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cookies are golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
Optional: Leave out the nuts or add raisins instead of the chocolate chips for fruit and nut cookies.

Enjoy with a cup of tea!
