Salam, Kia Ora.....

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  The weather is beautiful  today with clear blue sky.  Not too hot and not too cold :) I really luv this kinda weather.  Too bad hb is working today, otherwise a picnic by the beach sounds great.  Oh well, just hope that the weather will be like this again next week as we have planned to go to the beach, insyaAllah.

This recipe was requested by one of my friends, Yanti.  I made these chocolate chip cookies on last Eid.  I find this recipe very simple, with little ingredients and they are yummy.  I bake these cookies every year for Eid.  Just make sure you use good quality butter and chocolate chips.   This cookie is the crispy and crunchy type...crack cruck, crack cruck, just the way we like it...hehehez.  So, Yanti, here's the recipe, hope u enjoy baking them ;)

Ingredients :

  • 250gm butter softened
  • 100gm brown sugar
  • 100gm caster sugar
  • 450gm plain flour - Replace 50gm of flour with cocoa powder if u want to make a dark choc cookie
  • 150gm walnuts or any other preferred nuts
  • 150gm chocolate chips
  • 1 egg
  • Additional chocolate chips for decoration on cookies.

Method :

  • - Preheat oven to 160 deg C.
  • - Add brown sugar and caster sugar to softened butter and beat till well combined.  Beat in the egg and stir in walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • - Sift flour into the mixture and mix using a wooden spoon or spatula until a dough is formed.
  • - Shape cookies to your liking and place chocolate chips on top of cookies. You can use a spoon, I just use my fingers.
  • - Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 mins depending on your oven.
  • - Let cookies cool completely before storing in an air tight containers.

Tips :

Nuts like almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts must be roasted and cooled prior to adding into the cookie mixture.  By doing so, cookies will stay crunchy and last longer.  As for walnuts, pecans, pistachios and macadamias, you don't have to roast them as these nuts produces their own oil.  You can add them directly into the mixture.

Enjoy your weekend everyone......

Me Te Aroha...With Love,
Anie ;)
