Choc Chip Cookies Ingredients 350g plain flour 1tsp bicarbonate of soda 1tsp fine salt 225g butter 175g caster sugar 175g soft brown sugar 1tsp vanilla extract 2 eggs 200g chocolate (chips or chopped) Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. In a bowl mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. In a separate bowl beat the butter, brown sugar, caster sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs. Gradually fold in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate. Get the dough into a ball with your hands and split it into two. Roll each half into a sausage approx 5cm in diameter and place in the fridge for at least ten minutes or until ready to use. Slice into 2cm slices and place on a baking tray, spaced well apart (they will spread in the oven). Bake for approx 10 minutes, and allow to cool.
The Fairy, who is nearly three, has been doing cookery classes with the wonderful Amber Morgan at A Spoonful of Sugar in Bath since the beginning of the year and she LOVES it. She (with a little help from her flour-covered mum) has made pizza, muffins, bread sticks, carrot cake, and even pasta. But our absolute favourite recipe, are the choc chip cookies. Large, buttery and chocolatey, they're everything a cookie should be and perfect for parties. Just make sure you make plenty, as they will be adored by both children and adults alike!
