|Tonight's cooking consisted of Shepherds Pie and Chocolate Chip Cookies.|
|I will fill you in with the recipe for the Shepherds pie another time.|
|You will need the following ingredients:-|
|1 teaspoon||baking powder|
|1/4 teaspoon||bicarbonate of soda|
|75g/3oz||butter or margarine|
|50g/2oz||soft light brown sugar|
|3 tablespoons||golden syrup|
|125g/4oz||chocolate chips (dark, milk or white, you choose)|
Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl
Cut the butter and add.
Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs.
Add the light brown sugar, golden syrup and chocolate chips and mix until its smooth dough (use a spoon first and then get stuck in with your hands)
Roll into small balls (approx 1inch), place on a baking tray leaving at least 2 inches space inbetween as they expand in size. Press down gently each one with your thumb.
Bake at 190C/375F/Gas mark 5 for 10 minutes.
My tips for making it hassle free!!
Get all the ingredients out ready.
For less washing up use a light weight bowl on the scales and use this for mixing to.
To avoid a messy kitchen once you have used an ingredient put away in the cupboard.
Wash up whilst they are cooking.
