Here is a recipe that will gladden the palate of many a chocoholics! Atleast, it made my grandson smile!
½ cup butter /1 stick, unsalted/ 100 gm -at room temperature
6 tb sp sugar
6 tb sp brown sugar
½ cup cocoa
1 egg at room temperature
½ tsp vanilla essence
¼ tsp water
1 cup + 2 tb sp flour
½ tsp b soda
½ tsp salt
½ c chopped nuts ( optional)
1. Cream together butter and sugar.
2. Stir in egg
3. Add essence and water
4. Sift flour, soda, and salt, mix with above
5. Add chocolate morsels.
6. Bake at 190 degrees centigrade in a greased cookie sheet.
7.You can use the food processor for whisking, but add morsels after taking out the batter in another bowl.
8. Roll dough into a ball, place on baking tray, flatten a
bit and put 1 or 2 chocolate chips on top. Press lightly. Place the cookies apart, as
they tend to spread.
Tips: Leave them to cool on tray, do not overcook. Do not worry if
cookies appear a bit soft. They tend to harden after cooling. Check the
bottom of the cookie with a wooden spatula to see if cooked before
removing/ or put a wooden skewer through. Once the cracks appear on
top, means the cookies are done.
Oven temp: 375 degrees F/190 degrees C
