After failure of various attempts, I came across this recipe. It was finally successful! The recipe is originated from one of my daughter’s favourite Geronimo Stilton series books. My reflection? Do choose and believe in the best children literature. They stimulate your children and occasionally you would find recipes that work!
Make about 12 cookies
- ½ cup (1 stick) or 115g salted butter, softened
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg (60g)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Leave the butter in the room temperature until softened.
- Combine together dry ingredients of all-purpose flour, salt and baking soda.
- Place the softened salted butter in a deep mixing bowl. Turn your electric beater into the slowest mode and beat the butter. Gradually add the granulated and brown sugar and keep beating. Then add the egg and vanilla extract. Keeping beating and mixing. The mixture will become fluffy and light. The whole process takes about 2-3 minutes.
- Mix in dry ingredients of all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and the chocolate chips, fold with a spatula until dough forms.
- Make a log out of the dough and wrap it in parchment paper. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 180℃/360F°. Cut the log into 12 slices, roll each piece in a small ping pong ball, then use palm to press down to a cookie shape. Place 12 cookie pieces on a baking tray. Leave little space between the cookies. Bake them for 18 – 20 minutes or until brown around the edges.
- Cool for about 20 minutes on a cooling rack for before enjoying.
