My daughter has a little friend over this afternoon and I was going to buy a treat for afternoon tea as I'm feeling a little time poor with the impending house move, but I decided " no I can whip up something quickly if only to save a few pennies!"
I grabbed the iPad as all my cookbooks are packed away and quickly googled a recipe for choc chip cookies ... Yes I know sounds like sacrilege for a mum advocating eating healthy chemical free foods to enlist the aid of some random internet recipe. Surely I'm a domestic goddess that was born instinctively knowing the right amount of self raising flour in a choc chip recipe?
Not so. In fact I'm hopeless with recipes. My brain does not retain them, hence an iPad and the internet are a match made in heaven for a mum like me. You see most recipes on the internet are pretty much the same basic recipes with slight variants. A basic cookie mixture doesn't have to be hard and it's pretty easy to make sure it's additive free.
I just made sure I used natural vanilla not vanilla flavouring and Dairy Fine Choc Chips. If I wanted to be really good white choc chips would be better. You could even add some cocoa powder for a double choc chip cookie. Much better than store bought and saves you some cash too as you would have all the basic pantry ingredients already right? (By that I mean you have my book and have the basic pantry as recommended?)
Now when you Google that awesome little recipe, Pin it for next time on your Pinterest Board ... Or look at my board for the cookie recipe #Cookbook-Cut-The-Chemicals!! Too easy!
