Cookies, anyone?

Everybody likes cookies, they are nourishing, comforting, delicious and surely mouthwatering. I prefer to enjoy this on my own, so I can be ME, putting on my happy face, and not worrying about looking like an idiotic hopeless chocaholic.

Chocolate chip cookies and Macadamia chocolate cookies


1 cup caster sugar

1 cup brown sugar

100g softened butter

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1tsp baking soda

1tsp salt

3 cups flour

200g dark chocolate chips


Place sugars, eggs, butter and vanilla in a bowl. With an electric whisk or a hand one (good for you!) mix until everything is combined. Gradually add the baking soda, salt, flour and continue mixing. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Drop rounded teaspoons onto greased baking sheets, about two inches apart and bake in the oven at 180 degrees (375F) for 10-12 minutes. Remove from trays inmediately and place on wire racks.

For the Macadamia cookies just follow the same recipe but use 2 1/4cups flour and 1/2 cup unsweetened cooa powder. Add the coarsely chopped macadamia when you add the chocolate chips.

I went to see today my ex-work mates, (I used to work there as a cook) and took them these cookies for them not to forget about my culinary skills. They seem happy to see me....or the cookies?
