HOME COOKING using SIX MIX TRICKS

Cookie Dough

When it comes to sweet treats I’m firmly in the Roald Dahl and Mary Poppins camp – Treats are essential to life (Roald Dahl) and A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down (Mary Poppins).

You won’t find me on any sugar free diets. Everything in moderation of course but life wouldn’t be worth living without a cookie or two.

Chocolate cookies are a huge favourite in our house. I love them because there’s nothing like whipping a batch of these to take to on the school pick up to put a big smile on my kids faces.

You can make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for up to a month. Then, you can become mum/dad/husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend of the year by suddenly presenting the family with warm cookies and milk at bedtime.

You can also use the cookie dough to make your own cookie dough ice-cream for weekend movie nights by mixing chunks of it into a tub of vanilla ice-cream.

What you need:

8oz self raising flour

4oz butter

4oz white sugar

4oz brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

200g chocolate, cut into chunks

What you do:

Soften the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and beat in both sugars until creamy

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat in until combined

Add the flour and mix in

Chop the chocolate

Add it in

And stir it in

Chill for 15 minutes or up to a week. Try not to return to fridge to eat spoonfuls!!!!

When you want some cookies, preheat the oven to 200 degrees, line a tray with baking paper, grab some of the dough, shape into balls and place on the tray with space in between

Bake for 10 minutes
