Just made cookies from scratch for the first ever time!
Before now I’ve only ever bought cookies from the shops/bakery and occasionally braved a packet mix blush
They are amazing! Taste wise... 9/10. Looks wise though... 5/10 confused
Does anybody have any nice chewy cookie recipes and cooking methods? I used a chewy cookie recipe from tasty.

@Myshitisreal Yes please! shock They sound amazing! Mine weren’t so exciting, just chocolate chip (well chunk actually). Milk and dark chocolate with a normal cookie colour/flavour cookie dough.
@Baboutheocelot the ginger ones sound great! I love a borders dark chocolate ginger but have never tried a ginger cookie! I actually have a bag of crystallised ginger pieces I have no specific purpose for too grin.
@CordeliaScott oh wow! I love millies cookies 😍 only tried them once when in Brighton but they were great!

How long does a batch of cookies last?

MissBattleaxe Wed 04-Dec-19 23:19:34

In my house a batch lasts about 15 seconds.

Here we go

I read a tip where you add a single egg yolk to the butter, sugar and flour. It works. They taste extra buttery and rich. Just the yolk though.

@OhioOhioOhio they lasted about 3 days and still tasted fresh the whole time.
@MissBattleaxe they would have lasted that long if I wasn’t playing the ration police! And thank you! Will try that next time I make some grin
@Myshitisreal thank you! Very excited about these!

These Hummingbird Chocolate chip cookies are the best - www.thestickyfingersblog.com/2014/04/hummingbird-bakery-chocolate-chip-cookies.html

225g self raising flour
125g butter
125g caster sugar
100g brown sugar
1 egg
Pinch of salt
(Optional) chocolate chips, nuts etc.

You can adjust the ratio of caster to brown sugar to get a paler, less flavoursome cookie, or a darker, (imo) nicer one.

Soften the butter and cream together with the sugar. Mix in the egg, then the flour, salt and chocolate chips/nuts. Roll the mixture into balls and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 180°C. They will look undercooked when removed from the oven, but will be fine once cooked completely.

This recipe is the Millies cookies recipe which I've just realised has already been posted. They are delicious though.

I third the Millies recipe. I make it and freeze half the dough.

then I have a secret stash I don’t have to share with the kids
