"c" is for cookie...


... & that's good enough for me.
the perfect antidote to a long, bad, dreary january week - home-baked cookies with dark chocolate chunks. the only challenge is to not eat them all before the RSA comes home (it seems a bit unfair otherwise)...
having a bad week too? make your own:

125g unsalted butter (or pretend butter)
100g granulated white sugar
75g light muscovado sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
100g of "extras" (chocolate chunks, dried fruit, crystallised ginger, whatever you like!)
preheat the oven to 190C/375F, and grease baking sheets with some butter.
cream together the butter & sugars, then mix in the egg & vanilla. blend in the dry ingredients & then add the "extras" to the mix.
drop spoonfuls of the mix onto the baking sheets, bake for 8-10 minutes. leave the cookies on the sheets for a couple of minutes to harden slightly then transfer to a cooling rack.
then... eat them all!

mmm, looks good! I can hear Cookie Monster singing that song. I haven't thought about that in the longest time! I can't get it out of my head now!
