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

Let’s Bake! (Snickerdoodles Edition)

So if you follow me on Instagram, you may see that some time last week I uploaded a photo of some snickerdoodles I made! It was the first time I had baked in ages. The last thing I baked was a small carrot cake for Rory’s birthday back in October. But last week, I was craving something sweet and I didn’t feel like going to the store. Luckily, we had all the ingredients needed to make cookies!

The recipe I used was an old trusted one that I found years ago. The cookies come out soft which I prefer, I don’t like crunchy cookies. I normally half the recipe though, as it’s just me and Rory at home and it would take a while to get through all those cookies. You can find the recipe here.

I took pictures while I baked, and I’m very happy with how the cookies turned out! They’re all gone now, but Rory and I really enjoyed them. I forgot how fun baking is, and how rewarding it is to eat something that you’ve made 😛
