There are two ways of getting ready for a road trip:
A. Stock on sweets in the first gas station.
B. Bake and pack some quick cookies the night before leaving.
Guess which is my favourite one.
This recipe, which I have mastered through loads of practise, is a result of my mild addiction to Millie’s cookies. Them being so delicious forced me to google “how to make Millie’s cookies”… and a recipe turned up. They are similar enough, and you get the chewy texture by baking them for only 7 minutes. So much better than petrol station stuff…
Chocolate Chip Cookies (7 minutes cookies)
- 125 g softened butter
- 100 g brown sugar
- 125 g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 225 g plain flour
- 1tsp bicarbonate
- 1/2 tsp NaCl
- 200 g chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugars together, add the egg and the vanilla extract after that, beating. Incorporate the flour, bicarbonate and salt; fold in the chocolate chips. Divide the mixture into golf ball sized portions and place on a baking tray. Bake at 180 °C (160 °C fan oven) during 7 minutes for chewy cookies (or 10 minutes for a regular texture). Makes around 15 cookies.
I divided the batter in 2 halves and added 100 g of either white or milk chocolate chips.
Can you see the difference? (Left 7 min, right 10 min)
My photographer won´t let me even try the ones on the left…
