Because sometimes there is nothing better then home made chocolate chip cookies, right?
We have been pretty busy sorting things for school and getting everything ready, so those cookies were a nice treat once we were done!
I found the recipe on one of my favourite Foodbloggers: Klaraslife she always has amazing but simple recipes and stunning pictures!
I adapted te recipe a little fo us, being in Singapore again means using other ingredients, that are locally or at least regionally sourced, as palm sugar. This intense dark golden sugar has a kind of mild sweetness and smoky caramel flavour, a delight!
Of course, you can choose your own sugar, add nuts, white chocolate or just dried fruits. With this quantities you will make 18-20 cookies.
* 225 g of butter
* 200 g of palm sugar (or an other sugar your choice)
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
* 1 tablespoon of greek yogurt
* 290 g of flour (I used plain)
* 1 teaspoon of baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon of salt
* 130 g of chocolate chips
1. Warm up the butter (225g) in the microwave at low power to make it soft.
2. Whisk the soft butter with the (palm) sugar (200g) until creamy.
3. Add the egg (1), vanilla extract (1tbs) and yogurt (1tbs) – this will make the dough incredibly soft – combine well together.
4. Now add the flour (290g), baking powder (1tsp) and salt (1/2tsp) and beat on low speed until well combined.
5. Pour in the chocolate chips (130g) – or nuts, dried fruits,.. – and mix carefully as not to smash or break them.
6. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
7. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Line your baking sheets with baking paper.
8. Use one tablespoon to measure the dough: 1 tablespoon = 1 cookie. Place the dough on the baking paper leaving space between the cookies as they will flatten out a bit.
9. Bake for 11 minutes, until golden on the sides.
10. Let them cool down and enjoy with milk or cappuccino.
