So for my first recipe post I’m going to cheat a little. This isn’t my recipe, it’s my mums! In fact, I think she got it from a school recipe ages ago, but it’s still hers.
I wanted to test out the new oven and see if I could get it to work (spoilers: I did, eventually) and when I found that Morrisons do chocolate chips with no dairy, well, obviously I had to make cookies!
The good thing about these cookies is they make an AMAZING cookie dough. You could eat it out of the bowl, spoonful by spoonful, easy peasy.
Shh, I only had a little!
But for the purpose of testing the oven, I have to bake them.
So I put them on a tray,
And put them in the oven. Now, being that I have no idea how the new oven cooks things, and also that I do NOT like failing at a cooking project, I spent the whole cooking time like this:
I realise how tall I look.
But hooray! They worked.
So, here you go, Mum’s Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Mum's Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 130g buttery spread (I use vitalite)
- 80g sugar
- 2tbsp golden syrup (sub agave or maple syrup if you don’t have golden!)
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 200g self raising flour
- 100g chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 170C (335F).
- Cream the butter and sugar together until it’s light and fluffy.
- Beat in the vanilla and the golden syrup.
- Stir in the flour and the chocolate chips. The mix will be quite stiff but that’s a good thing.
- Divide it into tablespoon sized balls and place on a baking tray. They will spread a little, so don’t put them too close together.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
- Leave to cool, and enjoy your cookies!
