October 14, 2017

 

Makes: 9 - 10 cookies

 

Time taken

Prep: 15 minutes

Baking time: 12 – 15 minutes

 

 

Ingredients to make Chocolate Chunk Cookies

 

1 cup all-purpose flour / maida

 

½ tsp baking soda

 

½ cup butter - softened to room temperature

 

A pinch of salt - skip it if using salted butter

 

½ cup sugar

 

½ tsp vanilla extract

 

2 tbsp milk

 

½ cup chocolate chunks / chips (or a mix of both!)

 

 

Method of making Chocolate Chunk Cookies

 

Preheat oven to 175°C on bake mode.

Start with lightly creaming the butter and sugar - not completely dissolving the sugar granules.

Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add milk & vanilla extract and mix.

 

The cookie dough will be lumpy, bring together lightly – without working it too much. Chill the cookie dough for some time (recommended – also, learnt the hard way).

 

Make 1 inch balls from the dough and place on a lined baking tray. Flatten very slightly and bake in the centre rack position at 175°C for 12 - 15 mins.

 

Remove from oven and cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a flat surface.

The cookies will be slightly soft when removed from the oven but will harden in a few minutes. An easy way to know that the cookies are baked, is when the edges start to brown.

 

 

Variations:

 

I used the same recipe to make cardamom cookies, replacing ½ cup of chocolate chunks with 1 tbsp cardamom powder.

Use the basic recipe, without additions / flavourings, to make butter cookies.
