RECIPE: VINTAGE COOKIES.

uk-lifestyle-craft-blog

Today I have a very exciting post for you! Well, maybe more for me than for you as this is far from the most mind blowing creation but none the less I am ridiculously excited to let you all know that I have purchased an Artisan KitchenAid Stand Mixer and literally haven't stopped baking since its arrival. Believe me when I say lots more recipes are going to be coming your way! 

Here we have an example of just one of the treats that I have already whipped up since getting my filthy baking paws on it last week. I wanted to share this recipe from BBC Good Food because it's a staple that everyone should have in their recipe book and can be made mainly from staple cupboard ingredients in a couple of minutes. 

YOU WILL NEED:
150g softened salted butter, 60g light brown muscovado sugar, 80g granulated sugar, 2 TSP vanilla extract, 1 large egg, 225g plain flour, 1/2 TSP bicarbonate of soda, 1/4 TSP salt and 200g plain chocolate chunks or chips. 

METHOD:
Start by preheating the oven to 190ÂșC/gas 5. Follow by lining 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Start making the cookie dough by beating together the butter and sugars until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Sieve the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix well. Once the dough is throughly mixed add the chocolate chunks and stir well. Using a teaspoon, place small even mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre. Once cooked, leave the cookies on the tray to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack. 

For reference, this recipe makes 25 cookies so you might want to get some family or friends over to share them out or stash them away in your cookie jar.
