Aha....I've just finished wrapping some CHOCOLATE CHIP AND RAISIN COOKIES for 2 of my buddies at school. My sis thought i turned crazy butI love decorating for little surprise anyway. Ignore what she said!
Although i'm not into cookie much, i'm still a big fan of Chocolate chip cookie.Last time my uncle bought the chocolate chip cookie dough from the grocery store but i couldn't stand the taste...too sweet for me. School will start again tommorrow so i wanna give a little treat 2 my friends and family. It's been a long time i haven't baked anything for them-they must have missed my food a lot*wink*wink*...
This cookie is absolutely easy and fast to make-my type hehehhe....-i already reduced the amount of sugar from the "original recipe" so the taste is pretty perfect!Apart from other recipes i collected, by melting the butter plus adding 1 more egg yolk in this recipe, it does make secret. Apparently the little bit of extra fat adds just enough moisture to keep the cookies chewy, without making the cookies greasy, as extra butter might.So why don't u give it a try?!?!?
-2 cups plus 2 tbsp ap flour
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp salt
-3/4 cup butter (12 tbsp), melted and cooled until just warm
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1 egg yolk
-2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 cups chocolate chips
-1/4 cups of raisin- soak in rum for 20mins and let it dry
-Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
-In a large bowl, whisk together butter and sugars. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, followed by chocolate chips and raisins.
-Drop by a spoonful of mixture onto the baking sheet and pat lightly so the cookie is an even thickness, not a ball shape. Cookies will spread as they bake and this ensures a more even spread.
-Bake at 325F for 15-17 minutes, until just turning light brown all over. The edges should only be very slightly more brown, if at all, from the rest of the cookie.
-Allow cookies to cool before removing them from the baking sheet.
-store in the airtight container
