Cookies

Like many good things, cookies were a mistake. Let us set the scene: the ‘30s, the Toll House Inn. Ruth Wakefield, the owner, has finished the powdered cocoa used to bake butter biscuits for her guests. A snap decision: she crushes a chocolate bar and adds it to the dough. Surely it will melt. But it did not. And so the most famous cookie in the States was born. Not exactly a light snack, but who are we to complain?

Continue until you obtain a smooth cream (4). Make your life easier by resting the bowl on a damp cloth so it does not slip away while you mix. Gradually add two lightly whisked eggs (5) and mix well until you have poured in all the eggs (6).

Add the chocolate chips (10) so that they spread evenly. With an ice cream scoop (or a simple spoon) scoop out some dough, then use your hands to create round spheres of 50 g each (11). Place on a drip or baking pan covered with baking parchment (12).

We decided to place eight, evenly spaced spheres (13) on a baking pan to ensure they do not merge during baking. The listed ingredients will yield approximately 20 cookies. Before baking, place the cookies in the fridge for approximately 1 hour to ensure they keep their shape when in the oven. Preheat the oven at 160 °C; place the tray in the middle of the oven and bake for around 35 to 40 minutes. They will be ready when crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (14). Place the cookies on a cooling grid (15). As soon as they are cool to the touch your cookies will be ready for eating! 


Keep your cookies in a tin box for up to 3 to 4 days. Cookies Policy
