Chocolate chip cookies



Yes I am back after my break. My sister and hubby is back in Dubai and I am back to my normal routine. Feeling a bit lonely after they left :(

When I took the break I thought that I can be back with special recipes that I cook for them, but I was totally wrong.The days were too short for me to even enter my kitchen..They were here only for 8 days and 3 days we were out of the city. And the remaining days after all the outing by the time we come back it will be very late to cook, so we eat outside. I cooked only 2 days and that to just a simple dinner.

Today I am going to post a recipe of chocolate chip cookies which I made for them before they came.They really like it and it was all gone within 2 days.

Ingredients

Flour - 1 1/4 cup
Butter - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1/4 cup
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch

Preparation

Beat butter , sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla essence and beat again. Add all the dry ingredients and mix well.Finally add chocolate chips and mix well.

Make small balls with batter and place them in a baking tray and cook in a preheated oven at 190 degree centrigrade for about 15 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool down before you taste them.

Hey,
Welcome back. Lovely cookies.Great accompaniment for tea. So sad to hear you miss your sibling. It is like that for me too after my sis/parents visit me and go back. But the good thing is they are only an hour and half away from me.

Hai vineetha....just a small doubt....u know, when u made this batter was it loose or tight??
once i try to make some other kind of cookie but what happened is when i poured the batter in the tray it was alrite but after some time i can c that it got scattered and the cookie became a chappati form...
