Bite size cookies

I like petite size desserts;i.e. bite size ones. I like to savour them in just one mouthful without looking greedy. I like the puny-looking cookies placed by the side of the cup of coffee/tea on a saucer. Just cute. This is simply personal preference.

Bought a pack of Ghirardelli chocolate chips for a change. Preparation process for cookies dough is fairly easy but not the baking duration. My oven is not very big, so I need 3-4 hours (depending on the size of the cookies) to finish the baking each time. Baking always has a therapeutic effect on me.

- 250gm Lurpak unsalted butter
- Half cup granulated sugar
-3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-2 eggs
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon cream of tar tar
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2.Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, baking soda, cream of tar and mix well. Add in chocolate chips and mix. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.

3.Bake for about 13 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
If you like cookies that are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, these are the ones. Enjoy! :)

Moi aussi j'aime beaucoup les petits gâteaux qu'on peut appeler mignardises.
J'espère que tes cours en français ont commencé et que tu m'écriras bientôt dans la langue de Voltaire.
Bon week-en et à bientôt.

Hi Nadji,
Haha, ma première classe de français va commencer dans 2 semaines. Voltaire est l'un des plus grands écrivains de la France. Il me faudra des années à écrire comme lui. J'espère que je pourrai vous écrire en français simple à bientôt sans l'aide de Google translate. =)

Bonne journée à vous.
