On the fly choc chip cookie recipe (gf style)

I made up this recipe yesterday from a few leftovers I had in the kitchen cupboard, and a giant bar of Cadbury's milk chocolate which was supposed to be a stand-by Christmas present for any unexpected extended family members on the day but didn't survive my sudden chocolate craving. :-)

I'm stoked that they turned out yum, since I haven't baked biscuits from scratch since my chef-fy years!

Ingredients:
  • 100g unsalted butter;
  • 250ml flour (I used 100ml rice flour + 100ml potato flour + 50ml soya flour);
  • 200g Cadbury's milk chocolate (which I threw in the food processor to make choccie chips); and
  • 3 Tbsp. water.
Method:
  1. Put the processed choc chips (more like choc chunks) in a bowl.
  2. Process the butter, flour and water in a food processor (I have one of those mini ones which come as an attachment to some brands of stick blenders).
  3. Mix all ingredients together using a spoon.
  4. Line a baking tray with baking paper (or just grease it well).
  5. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 12 - 15 mins.
  6. Makes 18 biccies.

...to be enjoyed with authentic Ceylon tea
(a lovely gift from two Sri Lankan sisters I tutored for English).

Yay! they look great. I love the texture that the chocolate gives the dough.

Would you like to enter this for this month's Go Ahead Honey event? They seem like a perfect recipe for anyone who gets given a huge chunk of chocolate for Christmas! If you would, could you post a link to Stephanie the host in the post above and send them the link?

Cool! Thankee kindly and will do.

Wasn't sure if they'd qualify, since they are so full of chocolatey sugar (but I figure at least they're homebaked with trackable ingredients).

Thanks for the prompt, Naomi :-)

You, too, had chef-fy years? I suspect that we may have a few things in common. :) :) :)

Hi!

Nita -
Provided one is healthy, that is a quality problem in my opinion, as in permission to eat MORE choccie chip cookies to put ON weight :-) Lol.

Elizabeth -
Thanks for stopping by from Quote Snack. I thoroughly enjoy your website! We should compare crib notes on past lives sometime :-)

It surprised me too how easy it is. I just threw stuff together till it approximately looked like cookie dough :-) Happy weekend trails!
