Chocolate Chip Cookies

喜欢chocolate chip cookies这食谱一定要试。

说真的,加了咖啡味的cookies 自然少了一般香奶味的chocolate chips cookies, 这却多了像famous Amous口感的cookies。
如果豆类换上pecan 或 macadamia,一定更美味。

Preparation : 15 minutes(creaming method)
Resting : 30min in fridge
Forming : 5 minutes(use spoon to combine)
Baking : 170c, 15 min (i prefer crunchy, if chewy 10min will do)



250g salted butter, room temperature
200g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp coffee oil *i use 1/4 coffee flavour
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper *i used oat flour replace
300g self-raising flour (can be replaced with plain flour with 1/2tsp of baking powder)

1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup of favourite nuts - i use almond sticks
1 pack of Hersheys Chocolate Chips

Chickey Cookies 鸡仔饼




(a)450 gms flour
1/2 tsp Black Pepper Powder 1 tsp Baking Powder (double Acting)
1/2 tsp soda bicarbohidrat

1 egg
100 gms Sugar
1 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 tbsp maltose * 2tbsp
1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spices (i changed to 1 tsp)2 pieces of Chinese fermented tofu (Nam Yu/南乳)* i changed to 3 pcs
1/2 tsp Salt * 1tsp

200 gms of winter melon candy *i changed to 300gm
100 gms of sesame (i use only white sesame)
3-4 Cloves of Garlic(around 15-20gm)

250 gms Vegetable oil

再来之前的食谱没加soda bicarbohidrat 似乎少了该有的酥脆口感,或许我的口味比较重,更改后的味道比较适合我家人咯。

*如果不够咸,要加重口味加盐较好,太多soy sauce会导致烘烤时容易烧焦。

1. Sift ingredient (a) put aside.
2. (b) mixed until well incorporated, add in (c).
3. mixed (2) + (d), added all sifted flour.
4. leave in fridge rest for half an hour.
5. use baking sheet make a thin layer, bake with 170c for 10-15 min.
