recipe 2 / soft n’ chewy cookies

Gelly was insisting on trying this amazing chocolate cookie recipe for our food column.We ended up tasting these goodies the whole day,skipping lunch and dinner and blessing the recipe for its sheer perfection!

Triple Chocolate Cookies:

  • 400 g all purpose flour
  • 250 g butter
  • 180 g white sugar
  • 180 g light brown sugar
  • 250 g dark chocolate
  • 250 g white chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons Cadbury Cocoa Powder
  • 1 vanilla stick
  • 3 g baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

the steps:

Preheat the oven to 180°C.Line a baking tray with a non stick baking parchment.

In a large bowl beat the butter for 10 minutes until creamy.Add the sugars and beat for other 5 minutes.Then add the eggs and beat until incorporated for about 5 minutes.In a separate bowl mix the Cadbury Cocoa Powder ,the salt and the vanilla extract. Turn the mixer to medium speed and slowly add the chocolate mixture to the butter mixture.

Then in another bowl mix the flour,the baking soda and the baking powder and slowly add the flour mixture into the large bowl while beating slowly.Chop the chocolates into small pieces.Add them to the cookie batter and stir in with a spoon or spatula.

Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the baking tray at least 5 cm apart.Bake each tray for about 10-15 minutes until the cookies are still soft in the center but set around the edge.Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack  to cool completely.

Enjoy them with a large glass of milk for breakfast or decorate a jar with a ribbon and offer them as a gift!
