Chocolate chip cookies 

Hey guys! Welcome back. So, I decided that I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies and I have been experimenting with a recipe.

Today I’m going to show you how to make two types of cookies using the same ingredients for both. One is a lot fluffier and the other is more of a traditional cookie. I’ll show you both, but they both taste marvellous!

 

This one is more muffin like (fluffier) and more chocolatey (I personally prefer thiIMG_6620s one!)

Makes 12

Ingredients– 75g softened butter, 75g sugar, 170g self-raising flour, 1tbsp of cocoa powder, 120ml milk, handful of milk chocolate chips

 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/ gas mark 4.

2. Place the softened butter and sugar into a bowl and beat until it becomes a creamy mixture.

3. Sift in the cocoa and 100 grams of flour to the butter and sugar and mix well. It should end up looking crumbly.

4. Then add the the chocolate chips and the milk, and mix. The mixture will look really milky and more like a cake mixture, just add the 70 grams of sifted flour. It should be a bit sticky but should be a bit thicker.IMG_6564

5. Get a baking tray and line it with grease proof paper/ baking paper sheet.

6. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet with a table spoon. You can use your hands but this mixture is very sticky. If you want you can press the cookies down a little but I just left them the way they were, and didn’t make the traditional cookie shape.

7. Place the cookies into the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked in the centre.

8. Take the cookies out of the oven and eat whenever you want. You can eat them cooled or warm.

Makes 8

Ingredients- 75g softened butter, 75g sugar, 100g of self-raising flour, 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder, 50ml milk, a handful of milk chocolate chips

 

Method 

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/ gas mark 4.

2. Combine the sugar and softened butter in a bowl and beat well.IMG_6605

3. Then sift in the flour and cocoa powder into the sugar and butter and mix. The texture should end up being crumbly.

4. Next add the chocolate chips and the milk and mix well. The texture will be very different compared to the recipe above and more like cookie dough.

5. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.

6. Grab a handful of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Place the ball onto the baIMG_6616king tray and press it down until the cookie is 2cm thick.

7. Place the cookies into the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the middle is cooked.

8. Take the cookies out of the oven and eat whenever you want. You can eat it warm or cooled.

 

There you go! Now you know how to make 2 different cookies with different textures, using the same recipe. If you make these please comment below and tell me which one you prefer.IMG_6762
