ES requested us to buy her a packet of chocolate chips cookies when we shopped for grocery last week. I had asked her not to buy, and make her some homemade chocolate chips and almond cookies.
(makes about 20 cookies)
115g butter, softened
115g caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
175g plain flour
90g plain or semisweet chocolate chips
1.Preheat oven to 180degC. Line baking trays with parchment paper.
2.With a wooden spoon or electric mixer, cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until the mixture turns pale and fluffy.
3.Beat in the egg gradually. Mix well after each addition.
4.Sift the flour over the mixture, fold in with wooden spoon or a spatula. Fold in the chocolate chips.
5.Drop tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the prepared baking tray. Leave some space between the cookies to allow for spreading. Flatten each cookie dough slightly with the back of a fork, keeping the shape as even as possible.
6.Bake for 10 mins or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
