Cookies - Choc Chip and Vanilla

A quick and easy one this time: Cookies!

Mmmm, cookies...
Also: hadn't realized how close this plate was to the edge until I took the photo!

Very easy to make, the basic cookie recipe is very adaptable. Here I've added chocolate chips and some vanilla extract.

230 gram unsalted butter
200 grams caster sugar
50 grams muscovado sugar
170 grams condensed milk
350 grams plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
chocolate sprinkles / drops / fine chopped chocolate to taste…

1) Cream the butter and sugar and then mix in the condensed milk and vanilla extract. Then mix the flour and baking powder/bicarb together and mix this in with the wet mix. Finally, add as many chocolate chips as you fancy.
2) Take a bit of mix and roll it in your hand so that you have a ball about an inch across. Flatten this ball out and place on a non-stick baking tray. Give the flattened balls plenty of space on the tray as they will spread out to give you cookies about 4 inches across...Make them as big or as small as you like.
3) Place in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes.
4) Carefully slide onto a rack (they will still be quite soft!) allow them to cool and set.
5) Share and enjoy. I've done two batches of these recently - one shared with the walkers in the Peak District and the other with work colleagues. Both times greatly enjoyed by all...

Best eaten when still slightly warm and soft in the middle but very nice cold as well.
