Double Choc & Macadamia Cookies

Happy 2017!!!

Most who I’ve spoken have said that 2016 was a brutal year. With all that is and has happened – the heartbreaking tragedy that is Aleppo, the disgust that is Trump, etc. We are living in quite an…interesting time… Anyway let me not get into politics, 2016 wasn’t all that bad for me, I was blessed with another daughter who is the sweetest, most chilled and content baby ever! Becoming a family of four has also been quite….interesting (chaotic, completely insane and absolutely beautiful all at the same time).

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Isn’t it just amazing weather in Cape Town?! It’s been forever since I’ve defrosted 🙂 This beautiful weather has inspired me to finally post the utterly divine triple chocolate chip cookie recipe.

I attempted these yummy babies two weekends ago when I had a little baking frenzy.  They are delicious and even warranted a comment “Aunty Saadiyah, you make such nice things” from my adorable nephew Zaydaan 🙂

If you have kids, this is the perfect recipe to make with them as it’s simple and a visual feast. They’ll just loooooove throwing in the various types of chocolate and watching it whizz away. As with most of my posts, this is the answer for any chocoholic (note to self, I really need to curb myself with the chocolate in take).

If you’re looking for a place to purchase these different types of chocolates, I bought them at Value Baking Supplies – It’s a bakers heaven and I find their prices are much better than most of the competing baking supply stores.

Aaaaaand here you go:

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup mini or regular chocolate chips (I prefer chopping up dairy milk chocolate)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or baking paper – I used this incredible non stick sheet that I purchased at Lindt Chocolate Studio
  2. Place butter and sugars into an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy, approximately 2 minutes.

4. Add all chocolate chips and mix to combine.

5. With a medium ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet, spaced apart and bake for 12-15 minutes, until baked through.

6. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Then it’s time to devour 😀

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie

One of my many baking missions is to find the perfect choc chip cookie recipe. There are countless methods and takes on this “classic biscuit” leaving you with endless options, depending on your preference. They vary from crunchy to chewy and from sweet to salty. For me personally, as long as the choc chips are delicious and not “baking chocolate” I am satisfied 🙂 For this reason I always use chopped up Cadbury dairy milk when a recipe calls for some choc chips as it tastes divine and you’re able to decide their size.
