Miss Franger Farm made these great little cookies the other night to take to school for an end of term party, and they went down really well with her friends and the teachers.
She used a basic cookie dough recipe from http://www.taste.com.au then added her choc chips. You could add anything you like to this basic dough to make so many different types of cookie. Here’s how she did it.
125g (4.5oz) butter, softened
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup custard powder
milk and white choc chips
Preheat oven to 180C (356F).
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until it’s light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until combined. You can add your choc chips at this stage if you’re adding them.
Don’t forget to lick the beaters!
Sift the flour and custard powder over the butter mixture and combine using a wooden spoon.
Flour your bench to prevent sticking and roll the dough to about 5mm thickness, then cut your cookie shapes.
Place your cookies on a baking tray covered with baking paper and cook for 15 minutes.
Once cooked, place on a rack to cool.
