Having spent the first years of my childhood in the USA,
I thought I should show my "roots" and make some
Actually, Our Boy is on half term break this week, but is spending the entire week revising for exams next week, so he needed a little encouragement and some rewards for the hard work he is putting in.
The cookies were even good enough to receive a mention on his Facebook page ;-)
225 grams of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
225 grams of softened butter
225 grams of sugar (I actually used about 190 grams as it just seemed too much sugar!)
150 grams of brown sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar)
2 large eggs
350 grams of chocolate pieces (I used 200 grams - again it just seemed ENOUGH of the sweet stuff)
Chopped nuts (if you want)
Bake for 9-11 minutes 180 degrees in the middle of the oven.
It makes about 45-50 cookies
