The old quest ‘in search of store bought’ rears it’s head once again; now I’ve been trying to nail down a decent chewy cookie recipe for a while with limited success. This beauty I found on (I think) allrecipes.com is right on the money.
The recipe claims to be a clone of Subway Cookies and fuck my old boots it’s absolutely legit!
Get stuck in and enjoy…
2 cups (250g) Self raising flour
170g butter, melted
1 cup (185g) brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup (110g) white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence
1 egg yolk
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 – Preheat oven to 165c.
2 – Sift flour and set aside.
3 – Cream together melted butter, sugars until well blended.
4 – Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy.
5 – Mix in flour until just blended.
6 – Stir in chocolate chips.
7 – Chill dough and roll into balls, aiming for about a 3cm diameter.
7 – Bake for 15 – 17 mins or until cookies edges are lightly toasted.
Cool and enjoy!
Now if you fancy triple choc chip I recommend the following modifications to the above ingredients:
If you choose to substitute M&M’s or Smarties for choc-chips I humbly suggest to use the mini versions – I found that full sized sweets caused the cookies to spread a bit too much for my liking.
What else can you do with this dough? Apart from delicious single cookies, the dough will also lend itself to the Kiwi Subway variant of the the Cookie Pie, or you could use it to make a base layer of a slutty brownie.
Making herbal cookies?
Well sir, you are a degenerate and I salute you, but I would suggest only 1 cup of chocolate chips.
Less chips = more dough = more fun!
As a massive bonus, the dough (herbal or otherwise) can also be frozen; I found the frozen dough took about 20 minutes from a cold starting oven to yield perfect cookies.
