Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Cookies2As you can see form the other posts on my blog I love my cakes but every now again I cant resist a biscuit or cookie recipe especially when it is something you can whip up in minutes.

I made made these delicious white chocolate chunk cookies without really know how many the dough would make. As it tuns out is make rather a lot so next time I will definitely think about halving it to stop myself gorging on 42 cookies in a matter of days (it would have been one night but thanks to a little self restraint I managed to eek it out!)

I got this recipe from Food.com and made a few tweaks of my own like using chunks of white chocolate instead of choc chips, adding nutmeg and adding a lot more vanilla. I found the recipe was one of those dump it all together and mix it well type recipes so the measurements did not have to be exact. Feel free to use your judgement on if it needs more or less of certain things!

Cookies1

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 34 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 34 cup margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 112  tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large bar or white chocolate (milk chocolate can also be used) chopped into chunks, (Tip: Freeze them before adding them to the dough. It keeps them solid when the cookies cook)

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cream together margarine and eggs until smooth (This may take a while and look sloppy/ split just keep on going).
  3. Add the granulated sugar followed by the brown sugar.
  4. Add the flour 1 cup at a time. It should start to resemble a doughy texture.
  5. Add vanilla, nutmeg, salt and baking soda.
  6. Add the chocolate gradually.
  7. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes.
  8. They will be very soft when removed from the oven, but immediately use a metal spatula to remove them from the cookie sheets to let the cookies cool.
  9. They taste AMAZING warm!
