For some reasons, baking cookies is a bit hard for me, even though cookies are one of the easiest thing to bake in the world. It’s what every beginner must master before embarking on any baking path. Believe it or not, I’ve struggling with making crunchy cookie for like, forever.
There are many reasons for cookies to turn out nasty. The oven’s temperature. The ingredient measurement. My half ass attitude.
But there’s one thing for sure, when you bump into insomnia at 2 in the morning, nothing, I repeat, nothing eases better than a batch of crunchy chocochip cookie.
- 1/4 cup sugar minus 2 teaspoons
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 egg, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract + black color
- 1/2 + 1/8 cups oat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- a handful of chocolate chunks
I sometime do the batter and freeze it in advance. The more you freeze the bater, the darker color your cookie gets, so does the strong flavour.
Sift the oat flour, baking soda & salt. If you plan to add a bit flavour, such as coffee, fold them in. Preheat the oven at 175*C.
Melt butter with sugar over a simmering bain-marie until the sugar dissolves, take it from the heat and whisk until light pale. Sprinkle the salt in, then whisk in the egg and vanilla.
Bring the two together and fold it gently. Don’t over mix. Add the choco chunks at last, or any type of nuts you’re having.
Chill it in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Scoop them out, make it mini because this little minx spreads out quite big. Bake for 13 minutes and let it cool down completely.
