Almost Famous Amos Chocolate Chunk Cookies again..
So its obvious that Mr "Aid" lost its virginity today... I didnt wanna do it but the temptation was too overwhelming .. where ever I go I caught him looking at me with that sexy looking eye, body and feet... I had to do it... I just had to do it.. its either gonna be today or never :op
I began to walk closer to him.. looking at him straight to his eyes... touching him.. eh ehhhh this is wrong... my blog is rated PG! oppsssyyy hahaha
Anyway for a start I decided to bake hb his fav cookies since he was generous enough to buy me THE mixer.. in a way its like I gv him the honour and paying him back for his generosity lol.. so here is the recipe once again..
250g salted butter,softened (i used SCS)
200g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt (i didnt add)
1/2 tsp coffee oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper (i used nestum)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts,chopped finely (optional)(i used whole cashew nuts.. toasted)
1 pack of Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips OR chocolate chunks (ran out of Tollhouse - I used dark chocolate chip bought fm Bagus)
300g self-raising flour (i used plain flour with 1/2tsp of baking powder)
This is the most important step,at least 2 hours before,or the night before,beat the egg with the vanilla and the coffee oil to infuse or you can do this the night before,refrigerate it then bring it to room temperature before baking.
Preheat oven to 160C.
To the softened butter,beat in the sugar and the salt to combine. Beat in the egg and stir in the processed oats,ground almonds,optional chopped nuts and the chocolate chunks. Sift the flour and fold it in,this dough will not be too stiff but not too wet either.
For small cookies,place half-tsp of the dough,spaced slightly apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
Cool completely and let it sit overnight in an airtight container,this is for the flavour and fragrance to develop further.
Note: I baked mine for 10mins cos hb prefers the semi chewy type of cookie (If it was up to him he would say "no need to bake, just put the cookie dough into a Tupperware...")
Before I go let me just tell u girls that Mr 'Aid" hit my "G" spot.. hes young... hes smooth.. he gyrates swiftly in all directions and he knows how to mix it all up. I'm one happy, contented, exhausted woman who looks forward to seeing 'him' everyday .. wink wink .. muahahahaa
