Cookies are on the agenda today as they will always make you feel better when it is your first week back at work after a break. I like cookies as they will go great with my morning cup of coffee as I desperately try to wake myself up. This recipe is adapted from the God of baking Mary Berry Mega choc chip cookie from the book which you can buy here. Chocolate is the best invention ever – read why on my post here.
6oz (175g) soft margarine
8oz (225g) natural caster sugar (I store mine in a Kilner storage jar (see here for example) with used vanilla pods to make vanilla sugar)
2 eggs room temp
12oz (350g) self raising flour
4oz (100g) chocolate covered toffee pieces ( thorntons) chopped up
Preheat oven to 180c / gas 4 / 150c fan oven
Measure all ingredients and place in mixer.
Mix until a smooth dough.
Use 1 tbsp or 1 cookie scoop and set cookies well apart on lined baking trays.
Place in oven for 15 mins until lightly golden.
Place on wire rack to cool.
Store in airtight container.
Put kettle on and enjoy a warm cookie!
