This week I’ve seen two different blokes on Food TV giving flat chocolate chip cookies a whirl. So I had to have a go.
I decided to take bits and pieces from the recipes talked about on the tele, and make my own batch.
I liked the idea of using melted butter and not having to do the “creaming” step for a change. I agreed with the idea of turning the tray in the oven half way through the baking – much more even bake this way. And not having to chill the mix was a plus as well.. so my darling chickens, I give you my skinny bikkies!
The kids loved them which is always a good response! They are quite crisp and crunchy, perfect for dunking in your cup of tea or Milo!
You will need:
250gm melted butter
350gm sugar. I used a mixture of caster and light brown
1 t vanilla
300gm plain flour
400gm flat chocolate buttons of any variety you like – dark, milk or white!
What to do:
Pour your melted butter into the sugar and mix with a whisk till all combined.
Add the eggs and vanilla. Whisk until it’s all combined.
Flour goes in next, closely followed by the chocolate buttons.
Bake at 180 degrees for 5 minutes, then turn the baking tray around in the oven (so the ones that were at the back are now at the front!) and give them another 4 to 5 minutes. They’ll be golden brown and delicious looking!
Give them a couple of minutes to harden up a little, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Gobble, gobble, gobble!
