Chocolate Chip Hard Cookies


Well again it's baking session with my dear friend. This time we had chocolate chips in mind and we decided to try the cookie recipe from one of the my chain emails. We were rather skeptical at the beginning as most cookie recipes required larger quantity of butter but this is otherwise! It turned out alright if you like its harder texture with a crunch.


We had so much fun rolling the dough. These make smaller cookies but later we made some larger ones (2 times bigger). The smaller once are crunchier and the larger once are chewier (I love the later)

Makes 30 small cookies or 20 large cookies
Recipe can be doubled


Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter - Cut into small cubes
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tbsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup oatmeal - blended to powder
170g semisweet chocolate chips
130g milk chocolate bar - grated (I used Cadbury)
1 cup chopped nuts (your choice) - I used walnuts


Method:
Preheat oven 375 degrees F
Step 1) Cream butter and both sugar well
Step 2) Add egg then vanilla
Step 3) Mix in flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well.
Step 4) Fold in chocolate chips, grated chocolate bar and nuts. Mix evenly.
Step 5) Roll into small balls and place 2 inched apart on baking sheet. (Larger balls in you wish to make larger cookies)

Bake for 10-15 minutes. Larger cookies takes 15 - 20 minutes. They are basically done once the cookies are cracking.
