Chocolate Chips Cookies

Thursday, December 2, 2010

One night I crave for chocolate chips cookies that just come out from the oven. So off I went to the kitchen accompanied by my boy to make this cookies:

Recipe adapted from Yossi's and Keluarga Nugraha's blog. One of the reason I bake is because most of the store bought cookies or cakes here are too sweet to our taste. So if you have a sweet tooth, you may want to add the amount of sugar or chocolate chips on this recipe:

1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, softened
70 g brown sugar
30 g granulated sugar
1 egg
180 g all purpose flour
2 ts baking powder
1/2 ts salt
2 ts vanilla extract
2 ts instant coffee powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

- Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Put the dry ingredients together in a big bowl: flour, baking powder, instant coffee powder and salt
- In the mixing bowl, mix together using electric mixer with flat beater on medium speed: butter and both sugars for about 30 seconds. Then beat the eggs and vanilla extract, for another 30 seconds
- Shift together the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl then mix them together on low speed. Then add the chocolate chip and stir again.
- Drop cookie dough about 2 tablespoon measure onto a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 15 minutes. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie or a little shorter if you prefer a chewy one.
