How the Cookie Crumbles

These little cookies were Nina’s secret recipe…

One day she decided to share them with me and they became a staple at home when the boys and their friends are around.

This is such an easy recipe, butter combined with dark chocolate drops, two types of sugar and that little dash of salt…

Nina’s cookies

250 g unsalted butter

¾ cup white sugar

¾ cup light brown sugar

2 fresh eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2½ cups all purpose flour

1½ cups small chocolate drops (chips)

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Cover a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Butter/sugar mixture: Beat the butter and sugars in a stand mixer until fluffy and creamy. Add the eggs one by one and the vanilla.

3. In a separate bowl sift the flour, baking soda, salt.
Add this all to the butter/sugar mixture and mix together. Add the chocolate drops to combine.

4. Drop a  half a teaspoon (approximately depending the size you prefer) of mixture onto the baking tray—keeping about 5 cm (2 inches) of space between each cookie, as they will spread.
This makes approximately 5 lines of cookies per batch, depending on the size of your cookie dough drops.

5. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, until slightly golden.
