Hello lovely, here's a recipe for a particularly outstanding choc-chip biscuit (cookie) derived from a Bill Granger recipe:
125 grams softened butter, 1 and a quarter cups tightly packed brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, 1 lightly beaten egg, 1 and a half cups of plain flour, half a teaspoon baking powder, biggish pinch of salt, 150-200g 70% Lindt dark chocolate bashed up into bits.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Put butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until creamish. Add vanilla and eggs and combine. Stir in sifted fours, baking powder and salt until just combined. Gently fold through bashed up bits of choccy. Put 50 cent piece sized spoonfuls onto lined baking tray with plenty of space between each one. Cook for 15ish minutes, keeping an eye on them. They are done when they are pale gold.
Eat them warm or nuke them for a couple of secs in the microwave for a lovely, soft, oozy, chewy bikkie. Noice!
PPS Made the below for Ms B and her bub, it's the back of it (always my prefered part) and is a verse from Leonard Cohen's Dance Me to the End of Love. (OMG I CRAFTED)
Stay cool awesome reader. xxxx
