Kim was a very busy lady in the kitchen yesterday. She made some lovely chocolate chip cookies, and some of her wonderful pizza scrolls. She wanted me to share the cookie recipe, so here it is;
Made 3 dozen, preparation 20mins, cooking 12 mins per tray
3/4 cup (165g) firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
1 1/2 cups (225g) Self Raising flour
1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
185g butter, melted
1 egg, beaten lightly
2 tspns vanilla essence
3/4 cup (140g) dark or milk chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 160’c / 140’c fan forced. grease and line trays with baking paper
2. Combine sugars and flours in a large bowl
3. Add the combined butter, egg and essence; mix to a soft dough. stir in the chocolate 4. Place level tablespoons of dough about 6cm apart on prepared trays, flatten slightly. bake for about 12-15 minutes or until browned lightly. cool on trays.
Here is a picture of the pizza scrolls. They are great for kids lunches, and she wraps them up in foil when they cool and puts them in the freezer. They are gone in about a week! I suggested a variation for the next batch, and that is to use Vegemite and cheese instead of tomato paste and devon. She liked the sound of that, so she will try it next time.
