Here's another sweet treat for you! Ever had a Millie's cookie? Well, in the UK, or Glasgow at least, they're quite famous, and you can get them up to the size of a small pizza *jawdrop*.
Anywho! I decided to try out a recipe for them (which by the way was fairly easy to find on the internet, should you use the magic tool that is Google and type in "Millie's Cookies Recipe"). I will have a go at making my mother's chocolate chip cookies in the future, but I sort of associate them with christmas, so I will wait at least a few weeks before I make them. Oh! I even added 100 g Norwegian milk chocolate instead of the Kinder chocolate - this is entirely up to you though, and since Freia Melkesjokolade is a little tricky to obtain should you not happen to live in/visit Norway a few times a year, theeeeen why just not use all Kinder Chocolate?
Personally, I prefer oaty cookies with nuts and fruit, but I must admit, these are quite nice!
Millie's Style Cookies with Kinder Chocolate
(Makes 30 small ones, around 100 calories each)
125 g butter (I used Flora Light)
100 g light brown sugar
125 g caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
225 g flour (or self-raising flour, drop the next ingredient in that case...)
A pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder/bicarbonate of soda
200 g Kinder chocolate = 1 x 16 pack of mini Kinder chocolates
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
- In a baking bowl, cream the butter and sugars, until it goes all lovely and creamy, then stir in the vanilla extract and egg.
- Sift flour, rising agent and salt into the mix, combine, and then stir in the chopped chocolate.
- Use a tablespoon, or two teaspoons, to dollop a walnut sized ball of the batter onto a tray clad with baking paper. They don't spread out so much in the oven, but they do a little bit, so keep about 2 centimetres between them so they don't stick to each other.
- Then pop in the oven for 8-10 minutes. It said that if you wanted them doughy, you should take them out after 7 minutes, but I found them just to come out a mess then, and took them all out after 10 minutes just to be sure.
- Leave for a minute to cool, before transferring onto a cooling rack - if you can keep your paws away from them for that long that is!
Now, where's that glass of milk?!
