Cookies are traditionally a bigger, softer and chewier than a biscuit. Home cooks decided that these recipes were cookies rather than biscuits.
This recipe has been in my family for a long time. It was always a welcome treat while we did our homework after school. Mum used to press them down with a fork but I have pressed half a peanut into each before baking.
This is a fabulously economical cookie recipe, they can be left as vanilla biscuits or you can add any flavourings of your choice - its variations are only limited by your imagination. I have included some variation suggestions for this recipe, including a freezer variation, in the notes.
I call these the ultimate chocolate chip cookies, because they are super easy to make and bake. They make the perfect pick me up, put a smile on your dial gift. They also happen to be dangerously moreish. Tip. to get super light airy cookies every time, cream butter and caster sugar until it looks similar to texture to whipped cream. Bake these strictly to the 8 minutes baking time.
This recipe makes amazing soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies! I usually double the recipe and my flatmates eat the lot in a few days!
Moist and tasty cookies made with wholemeal flour, rolled oats, apple, honey and cinnamon. Delicious!
I have been making these melt-in-your mouth shortbread cookies for over 40 years. The are so easy and simple to make. Instead of the cherries, you can use sprinkles, half an almond or half a cashew on top of cookies before baking. A thumbprint in the cookie, filled with your choice of jam is also very tasty!
I found this recipe recently on the web, but I believe originally the recipe came from Good Housekeeping magazine. Although I have changed a couple of things from the original.
Everyone loves choccy chip bikkies. Not only are they simple to make, it's also easy to create variations by using different types of chocolate.
