House tidied, washing on, baby sleeping, dinner done, dishes washed and batches of cookies in the oven. Definitely time for a hot cocoa and maybe one of those cookies. You know, just to make sure they're not bad or anything.....
Chocolate drop cookies
8 T sugar
4 T golden syrup (or condensed milk)
3 C flour
4 t baking powder
chocolate drops ( as many or as few as you like.)
Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in the golden syrup (or condensed milk). Add in the dry ingredients and the chocolate drops and mix to a firm dough.
Roll into balls and put on a baking tray. Flatten with a fork.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 mins until just lightly golden.
Makes about 24 cookies
The great thing about this recipe is because it is so basic you can mix and match a bit with chocolate, dried fruit and nuts to suit what you have in the cupboard.
