Since moving into my own rental cottage, I must confess I have been very slack on the cooking front. Recently, however, I seem to be finding my mojo again - to the great delight of my little poppets !! Here is a sample of some goodies.......
Oatmeal Choc Chip Cookies
125g butter softened
75g soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
135g plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
250g chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C (375 F). Grease 2 large baking trays. Put butter, sugars, vanilla and egg in a bowl and beat with an electric whisk untill smooth.
Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarb soda and mix well. Stir in the oats and choc chips.
Put two tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl.
Taking a tablespoon of cookie mixture, form into a ball, dip one side in the sugar and place sugar side up on the baking sheet.
Press down the cookine using the bottom of a glass to make a flat circle.
Bake in oven for 5-10 mins until golden.
Serve with milk or a smoothie to your kids, and maybe a glass of my home made bailies to your hubby for supper together !!
