Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dalilah has been bugging me to make these cookies, although it is not Raya yet. Traditionally in my family, cookies are for Raya only. If you want to eat cookies at any other time besides Raya, you just buy biscuits from the sundry shop, which is just as good and tasty.

Oh well, Dalilah nagged and nagged until I finally had to relent. So, here's my latest baking project. Thanks Mamafami for the fabulous recipe. My kids like them a lot!

Hot from the oven...
... straight into the bowl!

This is the recipe, from mamafami's blog:
Ingredients :
250g margarine
160g castor sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
230g flour
20g cocoa powder
100g chocolate chips
50g Nestum
Method :
1. Sift flour and cocoa powder. Set aside.
2. Cream margarine and sugar. Add in egg yolk and vanilla essence.
3. Add in Nestum and chocolate chips. Mix well.
4. Add in the sifted dry ingredients. Mix till well combined.
5. Spoon a teaspoon batter onto the baking tray layered with greaseproof paper. The cookies will expand slightly when baked.
6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 165 C for 25 minutes or till done.
7. Leave the cookies to cool on the cooling rack before storing them in an air-tight container.

I ran out of chocolate chips. Just about 50 grams left, so I add 50 grams chocolate rice instead, to make it even, :).
