Let’s Bake! (Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition)

I really enjoyed making my last baking post, so I thought I would give it another go! Once all the snickerdoodles were gone, I wanted more cookies, and chocolate chip is my second favourite!

The recipe I used is another old, trusted one that I found online. There’s so much recipes out there! I’ll leave a link here and let you know again, that the recipe I used has been halved. I also am not a fan of nuts, so I always opt to leave those out. This recipe gives you soft, chewy cookies, which again is the type I prefer!

Let’s get into it.

First, make sure you have all the ingredients, cause I’ve been caught out before.

To make 12 cookies, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence (I can’t tell the difference truthfully)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp hot water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together the softened (or in my case, almost melted) butter, brown and white sugar.

Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla.

Mix some more!

Now the dry ingredients.  Time to add baking soda, salt and flour.

Now, for the best part! The chocolate chips!!

I love cookie batter!

Now to scoop it out and put on the baking trays.

I baked them for 15 minutes at 150 degrees celsius.

Cookies!!!!

As usual, they expanded more than I thought. But they look (and taste) good! Which is the most important part.

I really like cookies 🙂

Also, it looks like we’ve almost reached 300 followers! I’m off to plan a special little post thanking everyone for when we reach it ?

I’ve been following her since the early days of my blog. She is so creative and inspiring! I look forward to everything she has to share. I’m literally just going to keep fangirling about her for the rest of the post. I’m not her only fan though, as she has over 1700 followers!

Here’s a snippet from her About page!

In love with all things cute, kawaii and pastel, and wildlife and nature stuffs. Happiest at home with my bunny alongside a cup of tea and fluffy socks. Started this blog (August 2016) as a creative outlet and a place to share adorable DIYs with the amazing people of the internet, but mostly to make people smilee! ?

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

A little disclaimer here though, I could literally just include every single post she’s ever done. She is such a creative soul, and I love every one of her posts!

I mean look how amazing! The cake pops themselves look amazing, but Tabi has a knack for taking beautiful shots of her creations as well. I can only dream of that XD

I have always loved bullet journals. But I also feel like I would either forget to write in it, or make one mistake and never touch it again. Instead, I settle for watching/reading Tabi create hers, and marvelling at how cute it is 😀

I’ve already mentioned how creative Tabi is but I refuse to stop. Tabi often does little DIY projects, and this is one of my personal favourites! A mini greenhouse! Can you believe that this is all made from clay and cardboard??

Tabi wrote a big old list about things you can do on a rainy day. I have it bookmarked 😀

This was actually one of her ideas on the 50 Rainy Day Ideas. Tabi shares with us how to DIY this polaroid/memory wall! It’s come out so well, and she continues to add to it. I definitely plan to do something like this in our new place 😀
