Chocolate Chip Cookies…*
A couple of years ago one of my dearest friends gave me a Chocolate cookbook for Christmas. She obviously knew I am a Chocoholic (as are many women), but I only started baking some stuff a couple of months ago. Out of all the things I have tried out (until today), the Chocolate Chip Cookies are definitely my favorite! They are very easy to make, so there is actually no point in buying them ready-made. Even someone that can’t bake an egg, can make these cookies. And that’s why I’m sharing this recipe with you.
Ingredients (for around 40 pieces)
- 185 g Flour
- 90 g Cacao Powder
- 280 g Muscovado Brown Sugar
- 180 g Cream Butter
- 150 g Dark Chocolate
- 3 (beaten) eggs (at room temperature)
- 265 g Chocolate Chips (e.g. Callebaut)
- Preheat the oven at 180°C.
- Sift the flour and the cacao into a large bowl. Add the sugar and make a small pit in the middle
- Add the butter and the 150 g of chocolate (cut into small bits) into a heat-resistant (small) bowl. Take a pan, fill it with water and let it boil. Take the pan off the fire and put the small bowl on top of it (= au bain marie). Stir until the chocolate and the butter are melted and the mixture is smooth.
- Add the chocolate mixture and the eggs to the dry ingredients. Mix it all with a wooden spoon, but don’t stir it too long. Stir the Chocolate Chips through the mixture. You don’t need to use all of them. Add them to your own taste.
- Take a tea spoon of the mixture and let it ‘drop’ onto the griddle (with baking paper). Leave some space so the cookies can rise.
- Bake the cookies around 11 minutes until they feel firm. Let them cool down on the griddle for 5 minutes and afterwards on a grate.
Good luck & enjoy!
