My sister is in New York at the moment. Yes, in the Big Apple New York. Everything is evidently big in there -skyscrapers, meals, even muffins…I also heard that the freezers bear so many different Ben and Jerry ice creams that one has problems to decide which one to choose every time. On the top of the fact that I am missing my sister I also feel jealous not to be able to enjoy world famous Magnolia Bakery’s cup cakes with her in Manhattan. I can only imagine how woderful it must be to finish your working day with a colourful cup cake in one hand and a huge cup of Starbuck coffee in the other.
My sister is a big fan of American chocolate cookies. The following recipe is the recipe she once gave to me and ask me to make. I tested these crunchy cookies and they are magical. How could they not be..buttery chocolate cookies are hard to spoil! Make big cookies, it is my tip. The bigger the cookie is the better it is!
5 1/2 dl white flour
1 tsp bicarbonate/baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 dl white flour
1 1/2 sugar
1 1/2 brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract/vanilla sugar
1. Mix the flour, salt and soda. Cut the chocolate into small cubes.
2. Melt the butter and add the sugar in it. Add the eggs into this mixture and vanilla extract too.
3. Combine the flour mixture sith the butter mixture. In the end add all the chocolate cubes.
4. Make round big cookies. Bake them in the oven of 180-190 degrees for 10 minutes. If the cookies are extremely big American like, it will take a bit longer to bake them.
