Do you often find yourself late on a Friday night, staring aimlessly into the fridge looking for something that will satisfy your sweet tooth, but it's far too late to cook an elaborate, MasterChef, dessert? Well, this recipe is the answer to all your craving related problems! It's so easy and incredibly delicious! It also uses ingredients that are more than likely already in your pantry, so there's no need for shopping or planning ahead- you can just whip a batch up whenever you please...

COOKIES!!
So easy to make and the final product is so rewarding!


Ingredients:

150g, butter/margarine
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
2 cups of plain flower
1 cup of chocolate, chopped/chocolate melts

Materials usually needed:

You can also use a blender if you don't have a beater but just make sure you use softened butter.



Method:

Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line two baking trays with non stick baking paper. Beat 150g of butter and 1 cup of sugar for 1-2 minutes or until pale and smooth.



It Should Look A Little Like This
Don't worry if it doesn't look exactly like the picture. as long as your measurements are consistent, you shouldn't have a problem.


Add a tsp of vanilla essence...

Although the recipe says 1 tsp, in my opinion; the more the merrier, when it comes to vanilla essence!


Add in one egg....



Stop the beater, take the beaters off and fold in 2 cups of flour...



stir in chocolate melts/chopped up chocolate...

If you decide to chop up chocolate instead of shopping for chocolate melts- I suggest you go out and buy one of these, it is such a good investment and is useful for so many things!




using two soup spoons, spoon mixture onto the tray- two spoons full of batter for each cookie. One tray should fit four cookies on each, so make sure there is one cookie for each corner of the tray- remember, these cookies spread like there's no tomorrow inside the heat of the oven.....



Bake for 20 minutes or until light and golden and not hard but stiff. Cool down on a wire rack or plate and store in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
ENJOY! Bon Appetit!

These cookies should be crispy around the outsides and soft (not raw) in the middle-perfect!
