Christmas week is all about fun, gifts and food or should I say, desserts. For this one week, my healthy eating habits are neatly packed and stored away and my sweet tooth gets on to doing its task.Today, I, your Home & Kitchen Expert am here to share my secret Christmas special Chocolate Chip cookie with HomeShop18’s customers. This easy to cook recipe is my family favourite and needless to say, from my kids to me we finish them in no time. So wear your apron and follow the below steps for those delicious rich Chocolate cookies.
So here’s what you need to prepare the delectable Chocolate Chip Cookies:
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2 tbsp rice flour
- 3 tbsp caster sugar (you can put in a little more if you like your cookies sweet)
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- 60 gm butter
- 60 gm chocolate pieces – chopped
- ½ tsp vanilla essence
Now that the ingredients are ready on your slab, get hold of a mixing bowl, some spoons, a baking tray and an electric mixer (if possible) or a whisker.
Hold it! No! No! Don’t cheat and put your hands into those chocolate pieces. I know you all love chocolates but wait till they get baked with the cookies.
- Use the electric mixer or a wooden spatula to beat the butter with sugar. You must have a light creamy consistency. Add some vanilla essence to the mix and whisk
- In another bowl, sieve the dry ingredients– flour, rice flour, and baking powder for a smooth mixture.
- Now combine the dry ingredients with the batter of butter and sugar, and add the chocolate pieces to it (no cheating with chocolate chips pieces). Mix till you get a soft dough.
- Time to get the shape. So get any kitchenware, preferably with a circular top and cut and flatten to form the shape of cookies. Don’t make them too flat and it’s okay if they are all not the same size and perfect rounds.
- Place an aluminium foil on your baking tray and grease it with butter. Place the cookies on this baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 160°C/320°F for 30 minutes.
Your cookies are ready! You know what to do now! Make sure you leave your comments and let me know how they turned out to be. Merry Christmas!
