I am one happy lady. I now own a KitchenAid. I seriously never thought I would own one, what with the $700 price tag. However hubby decided to cash in some Qantas frequent flyer points around Christmas and my new mixer became my Christmas present. Yippee!!
My chocolate chip cookies have always been made by hand. I thought I would bake them another way – in the KitchenAid. Do you know what? They turned out exactly the same! Here is the recipe again anyway, if you so desire to mix the ingredients in your own (?) KitchenAid!
And for those cookie connoisseurs, these are thick, fudgey and cakey.
P.S. My baby is red!
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
125g melted butter, cooled
1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup self-raising flour
1 cup plain flour
200g choc chips – milk or dark or white or a combo
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees fan forced or 170 degrees without the fan. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
In a medium bowl combine the flours. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment fitted, mix both sugars with the melted butter until the sugar dissolves. Add the egg and mix well. Add the flours and on low speed combine with the wet ingredients. Fold in the choc chips by hand. Chill the bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes to make it easier to work with.
Remove the bowl of dough from the fridge and roll into twelve balls, arranging six per tray. Do not flatten or you will end up with giant cookies! Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are firm but the middle is still soft. Allow to cool then eat!
