Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These lovely chocolate chip cookies are crispy and very tasty.
They are made with Sweetened Condensed milk which works as an egg replacer in this recipe.

Yields: 30 cookies
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooks: 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven – Mine were done after 17 minutes)

Ingredients:
1 Cup Butter (Softened to room temperature)
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 Can)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1.5 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips/Chunks (I Used White Chocolate Chips)
Optional Nuts (I Used Chopped Walnuts For 1 Batch)

Procedure:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C  (350F) for 15 minutes.
  • Grease baking sheets or line it with parchment paper.
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy (for 5 minutes).
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and combine well.

  • Stir dry ingredients into the butter mixture, then add the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  • Combine it well using a spatula. Don’t beat it.

  • Take a tablespoonful of dough, roll it and flatten it using your fingers.
  • Grease the tablespoon, so that the dough will fall off easily.

  • Bake it for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. (The color check can be done if using all purpose flour only. Mine were done at 17 minutes).
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes in the baking sheet itself. Don’t try to remove it. It may look unbaked but it will become hard on the baking sheet itself.
  • After 5-10 minutes, using a spatula transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

  1. If you are using a dark (black) color non stick baking sheet, reduce the baking time by 1 or 2 minutes, so that the bottom does not get burnt.
  2. The cookies were crispy, not chewy. So if you want a chewy chocolate chip cookie, I think decreasing the quantity of butter or increasing the all purpose flour would be helpful.

Healthy Chicken Beet Salad

I have never been a huge fan of neither salads or soups before. When I was a child I disliked them so much that I even bet with my mom that the cauliflower soup tasted so bad that even the cat wouldn’t want it. She was provoked by my behavior certain the cat wouldn’t want the soup so she allowed the cat to drink from the soup, where I triumphantly exclaimed; HA! Now I can’t eat from it, as I can’t eat from the same food that the cat ate from. Needless to say I was sent from the table without more food that night.

Salads were even worse. That was rabbit food. I can still hear my fathers words over the dinner table. No way I’m gonna eat that. That’s food for rabbits! – Poor mom. How was she to convince two kids to learn to like salads when their father was so opposed to it.

However, lately I have started getting a taste for both of them and I have discovered it has ALL to do with the ingredients of the salads. I have certain salads I still don’t fancy at all, but when I make them with the ingredients I do like. They turn out delicious!

My fav. salads are the Feld Salad (french) and the Radicchio Rosso Salad (Italian)
–  Use 100 grams of each (or 50 grams of each if you prefer to have less green leaves :D)

Other Ingredients:

B008OFKM42_11 BIG or several small Red Beets
1 can of Chick Peas
1 Salad Onion or regular Onion cut in small pieces or thin slices to your liking
1 Red Sweet Pepper (Paprika) cut in 2 x1 cm long pieces
1/2 Cucumber cut in cubes
50 grams of Sweat Peas cut in 4 parts each
2 -3 tomatoes cut in cubes
1 can of Corn including the juice from the can

If you are a vegetarian this is it and if you enjoy some good meat you can add
2 – 300 grams of precooked and pre cut chicken .

Blend well and top with
50 grams Nuts / Seeds
Heinz Curry Mango Sauce
Lemon Juice from one lemon

This is a really great salad and feeds 5-6 people if this is your main course and 10-12 if used as an appetizer.

Enjoy!
