Crunchy Chocolate Chips Cookies


I love making homemade cookies to give out as gifts for the christmas. When Bakertan gave away these cookies during previous bloggers' gathering, my family, especially my children simply just loved it. If you're looking for a crispy or crunchy cookie, this recipe is a very good choice. I would like to make and share with others, then decided to make half in chocolate chips and half with M&M. Wrapped it nicely and ready to give away .... to friends and colleagues :)

Source : Baking Mum and Bakertan

Ingredients:
125 gr Butter softened at room temperature
75 gr Caster sugar
60 gr Brown sugar
1 Egg, light beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract or 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
150 gr Plain flour
45 gr Cornflour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonanate of soda (baking soda)
pinch of salt
170g Chocolate chips

Method:
- Cream butter with both sugars until pale & fluffy. Add egg and vanilla to butter mixture. Mix well.
- Sift flour, cornflour, bicardonate of soda and salt together. Add to creamed mixture, mixing to a soft dough. Stir in the chocoloate chips until well distributed.
- Chill dough for 30 minutes to firm it up. Shape dough into a small ball and flatten with fork or spoon heaped teaspoons of dough onto lined cookies trays, leaving some space between cookies dough. **
- Bake at preheated oven 180C for 20-25 minutes or medium brown.
- Carefully remove to wire rack to cool.

NOTE :
** To prevent cookies from spreading, freeze shaped cookie dough for 10 minutes (with the cookie tray/s).

  30. Wow your cookies look really yummy! I made mine smaller, each heaped half teaspoon! But it didn't turn out crispy :( It's slightly cakey in the middle even though the cookie is burnt :/ I baked mine at 180 degC, 14 min (cookie dough chilled). I wonder if anything went wrong? Thank you :)

  31. Hi oursummerlovee,
    So sorry to hear about your cookies. Did you omit anything from the recipe or maybe baking soda(BS)? From my experience, cookies used BS, end result will be more crunchy. Don't over stir or else the cookies will be hard. Try again, maybe it should be okay next time. :)
