Chocolate Chip Cookies - Baking at Christmas



Hello everyone, I made these delicious cookies recently and definitely had to share them with you :-) They are the perfect texture for a cookie...a light crunch around the edge with a gooey softness in the middle....OMG! I'm dribbling just looking back at these photos! 😍👌🏼
As it's Christmas too I thought i'd decorate them all festive for the photos...so now they are, Christmas Cookies :-D
These are very unhealthy...well they definitely are if you eat them all within 3 days! lol oops! Look how many I made out of the mixture too...


...And that was after I ate about 3 or 4 already! I wasn't expecting to make so many so it was a bit much but this is perfect for Christmas if your seeing family, you will have enough for everyone, plus extra for yourself...cos trust me, you WILL want extra! :-)

So the Ingredients I used are...


I actually followed a recipe I found on google (bettycrocker.com) and the amounts were measured in American sizes. So as my Mum has the American cups I followed the same measurements, but if you don't want to make so many then half the ingredients I list below...
I made 20 cookies and put it into fitness pal so it worked out to be 182 calories per cookie, 4.1g of fat, 33.3g of carbs and 2.7g of protein. 
I will list below the exact ingredients on the website I got it from but I did weigh and take note of the grams as well so I could make it easier for you.

3/4 cup granulated sugar / 150g
3/4 cup packed brown sugar /190g
1 cup butter or margarine / 140g
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups Gold Medal all purpose flour / Self Raising 330g
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (i didn't add these)
1 packet of chocolate chips (i chose milk chocolate)


These do expand quite large and I could only fit about 4 onto the tray each time. I would place them about 2 inches apart from each other on the baking tray before you put them in.

Oven Temp: 375 F / Gas Mark 5

Method: Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff) Then stir in nuts/chocolate.

Make into dough balls and shape into place on an un greased baking sheet on tray. You can test out how big you make the dough balls in the first batch, depending how big they expand. My first cookie turned out huge!

Time: 8-10 mins or until light golden brown.

I have been so excited to share these cookies and just looking at the photos of them is making me hungry, I might have to bake some more :-)
Please let me know if you try these and how many you eat yourself? Cos they are so good you won't want to share them! hehe.

This will be my last blog post now until after Christmas, my next post may be up Boxing day evening or the day after so I hope you all have an AMAZING CHRISTMAS and I will see you in my next post very soon :-) xxx
