The last couple of weeks I have been given alot of brilliant recipes that I’m so keen to share but I want to first share some quick baking recipes that we are making for Baked Relief. Some very straight forward recipes that require just basic ingredients.
This recipe makes about 100 cookies and can be halved or quartered depending on how many you need. I mixed this in my mixmaster and it only just fits so I wouldn’t suggest doubling it. If you don’t need so many cookies all at once then freeze the remaining dough for another time.
These are sweet and crunchy. You can add choc chips or chopped nuts to the dough. Once I rolled half the batch into cookies and then added a pack of chocolate chips to the remaining half – a bit of variety. A basic recipe to have in your repertoire if you too have to start thinking about getting organised for school lunches soon.
one big batch of cookies
500g unsalted butter
500g caster sugar
1kg plain flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. In a mixmaster cream the butter and sugar together then add one egg at time, mixing well after each addition.
Sift the flour and baking powder over the top and fold through until well combined. Roll small spoonfuls and place them on a lined baking tray. Press each cookie lightly with a fork (the mark of a lovingly prepared home baked cookie).
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
