Chocolate chip cookies

I gave the biggest mini Maker options for the afternoon's activities and she chose cooking, a greed focused decision I thought (takes after her father!).  So we all put on our aprons and set to work in the kitchen.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can't remember where I got this recipe from; its really easy & quick so great to do with youngsters and always produces crowd pleasing results.

150g golden castor sugar
200g brown sugar
250g melted butter
2 eggs
generous splash of vanilla extract
300g plain flour
250g chocolate chips

Set oven to 375F.
Melt butter and stir into the sugars.  Then mix in the eggs & vanilla extract.  Stir in flour then last but not least mix in the chocolate chips.  

Blob a desert spoonful per cookie on a lined baking sheet allowing plenty of space for spread.  Bake for approx 10mins, until they slightly colour on the edges. Whilst the cookies are baking fight over bowl & spoon licking rights....
As the mini Maker's were involved we put our blobs of mixture into greased muffin trays which made for more of a cookie cake. No bad thing we thought!
