cookies

Finally I made them! Thanks to my sister who baked cookies and inspired me to follow suit. My niece goes to this fun activity center called Hippocampus. Its a place where kids can read, learn and play at the same time. The center conducts cooking classes for kids from time to time –  involving them in making simple things like sandwiches, muffins and cookies. Thats where I got this recipe from. I personally love the idea of involving kids in cooking as it encourages them to eat better and also serves as a good distraction for mommy and baby.

When I made these cookies I didnt have chocolate chips so I used broken chocolate bits instead. I searched all over but Bangalore doesnt seem to provide you with chocolate chips that easily. Finally found them at the Nilgiris on Brigade road.  I also got many other ingredients from there like chocolate vermicelli, liquid glucose and doughnut baking molds – stuff thats hard to find around here.

Ingredients:

  • 90 gms flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of soda
  • 40 gms butter
  • 25 gm Brown Sugar powder
  • 2 TBsp Honey / Golden syrup
  • 60 gms chocolate chips
  • few drops of vanilla essence
  • some milk

Procedure:

  1. Sift dry ingredients
  2. Add cold butter – mix to make crumb-like mix
  3. Add sugar , chips, essence and honey syrup.
  4. Add milk to form soft dough.
  5. Roll to about 1/4 inch thickness on floured surface
  6. Bake for 12 – 15 mins in an oven preheated to 180 deg C.
