My Double Chocolate Chip Cookie


Since I started working,I make it a point to bake some goodies during days that I am off.The reason why I do this is for my children.I know that they miss my presence at home especially my daughter.It gives me a reason to at least still manage to be with them though I am out of the house.The fact also that I want them to have something to eat when they reach home after school and I am still out.I miss my daily routine at home but I love the fact that I am working.I enjoy my time outside and working has given me a new perspective.I love the pressure,the new learning and I appreciate the joy of laughter and food with my co-workers.

My children both enjoy eating cookies and for a long time buying cookies is on top of my list whenever I will do my groceries.Living in Singapore has taught me to learn well in the kitchen and that also taught me to bake them.At first,I am just curious how to make my own cookies.Until,it became a passion and later on I began to mix and match ingredients.I will never forget how my husband's co-workers enjoyed my Oatmeal Cookie with Pineapple and raisin.It was really funny and both a pleasure to know that those guys loved that kind of cookie ..and quite surprise also that it has grated cheddar cheese.

Here is a very popular cookie recipe that I love to bake for my children.The basic recipe is taken from the internet but of course I made some changes.I discovered that combining brown and white sugar when baking cookies will give a good texture..soft and chewy.Another thing,combining butter and oil is also a great idea because both oil and butter provides a great result as a whole..cookies are not really that dry and you know the difference when you bite.The quality of your cookie will not change even for days.For every cookie recipe that I make,I always make sure to combine brown and white sugar, butter and oil.

Ingredients:


½ cup sunflower oil


½ cup Butter, Softened


3/4 cup Brown Sugar


3/4 cup White Sugar


2 whole Eggs


2 tsp Vanilla Extract


2 1/2 cup All-purpose Flour


1/2 cup cocoa powder


1 pack vanilla pudding 3.5 ounces


1 tsp (heaping) Instant Coffee Granules


1 tsp Baking Soda


1 tsp Salt 1 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips 1 cup chopped almonds

In a bowl, stir together butter,oil, brown sugar, and white sugar until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and stir together.


In a separate bowl, stir together flour,vanilla pudding,cocoa powder,instant coffee,baking soda and salt.

Add to wet ingredients in batches, stirring gently after each addition.

Stir in chocolate chips and chopped whole almonds.Do this by hand using wooden spatula.

Drop balls of dough ( a tbsp scoop, a cookie scoop or like me, you can use ice cream scoop) on a baking sheet line with wax paper.

Bake at 350 or 180 for 15 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and eat warm.( you can also keep in tightly sealed container).



I just discovered chopped whole almonds is such a great company for chocolate chips.They make good combination for my double chocolate chip cookie.I also love the mixture of flour and vanilla pudding.The result is a cookie with brownie texture inside.Hmmmnnn...how would you like a cookie taste like a brownie inside....


Look at the almonds..terrific taste with lots of chocolate chips.Those nuts are crunchy while the texture of every cookie is rich with chocolate taste, soft and chewy...not dry and without crumbs....
