Good, Insightful and Timely | Year 18 | 10 July 2020



Who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies, soft and fresh out of the oven? SPINN has a cookie recipe that will bring that image to life in your kitchen. Your Chef's Tip for today? The bottom of your cookies can burn quickly, so check your chookies constantly once they are in the oven.

300 grams of all-purpose flour
220 grams of granulated white sugar
200 grams of chocolate chips
187 grams of butter
11.5 grams of baking powder
10 mililitres of vanilla extract
6.5 grams of baking soda
3.5 grams of salt
2 grams of granulated instant coffee
1 egg
1 egg yolk

1. Mix in a bowl the butter and the sugar until they are well integrated.
2. Add to your mix the egg, the egg yolk and the vanilla extract.
3. Mix the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda, the salt and the coffee; then add them to the previous mix.
4. Add the chocolate chips and intetgrate them with the mix, which should not be wet or too sticky at this point.
5. Take the dough and form balls according to your desired cookie size*, then cover them with plastic wrap and let them cool in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven at 150F (302F).
7. Place your dough balls on a tray and bake them for around 10 minutes, until they have formed cookie-shaped circles and are soft to the touch.
8. Take your cookies out and let them cool down.
* A ball that weighs 15 grams gives you a small cookie; 30 grams gives you a medium-sized cookie; 60 grams gives you a large cookie.
