I've not had a lot of lucky making biscuits and cookies but Chris' niece and nephew visited a few weeks back and I needed to whip up some tasty treats last minute and cookies seemed a great idea. Only problem was I had no eggs and with a sleeping child in bed there was no chance of a late night Tesco dash. The internet proved to be my best friend yet again providing me with a ridiculously simple eggless cookie recipe. I have made them a few times now and adapted the recipe slightly.
- 12oz self raising flour
- 10oz soft margarine or softened butter
- 4oz caster sugar
- 4 oz demerera sugar
- 2oz chocolate chopped up(or anything else you fancy putting in; smarties, raisins, apricots etc).
Mix the ingredients together and knead the dough in your hands - it should not be crumbly so add more butter as needed.
Take a small ball of dough, about the size of a golf ball and squeeze it so it's a circle about 1.5cm thick.
Place cookies on a greased tray, evenly spaced and bake in a preheated oven for no more than 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. They should be crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle.
