I turned over to my oven after a hiatus of almost one and half years. While its a good thing for my health (and obviously my weight) that the oven was ignored, it wasn’t very good for my love for baking . I would spend time hours looking at various recipes, collecting those interesting ones, bookmarking the others – waiting for a perfect time to try them out. Only that the time never came. Planning something to cook never works in my favor. Never.
Last evening, on an impulse I wanted to have chocochip cookies – sudden sugar/choc craving kicked in. Even while the fruits called on to me from the table, my mind was busy devising a plan to indulge myself with something chocolaty. And then, I happened to bake these beauties – in just about ten minutes. No exotic ingredients. No special instructions. While the sweet aroma of baking filled the entire house, I pulled out the tray of cookies from the oven. Waited just the enough time to taste the first warm cookie and fell in love with it.
What I used -
- Maida – 1 cup
- Baking Powder – 1 tsp
- Salt – a pinch
- Chocochips – ½ cup
- Suagr – ½ cup
- Milk – ½ cup
- Oil – ¼ cup
- Vanilla Essence – ½ tsp
How I made -
- Pre-heat the oven at 175deg C for 5 minutes.
- In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together – maida, baking powder, salt and chocochips.
- In another bowl – mix oil, milk, sugar and vanilla essence together.
- Bring the wet mixture together with the dry mixture and mix it well.
- Scoop out equal portions of cookie dough using a spoon onto the baking tray. Slightly flatten the dollop of cookie dough to give it some shape.
- Bake for about 5-7mins or until done. Leave them to cool before removing them from the tray. When hot, the cookies would be still soft and harden only on cooling.
Do they work well without eggs in them?
Hey, there are a lot of cookie recipes that have eggs and then there are others without egg. I wrote the recipe for what works/worked for us.
