I am not a baking person. I do like to eat baked treats though and sometimes that means attempting to bake. My attempts usually end in disaster but sometimes the recipes are so easy that even Anti-Chef Laura can’t muck it up.
I used my own tried and tested choc chip recipe so I’ll share that with you guys today. There was a different one on their website but this one seems simpler to me and the simpler, the better!
Here we go!
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
125g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 180C. I’m not going to give the Fahrenheit version equivalent as payback for all the times that I have had to google the Celsius equivalent. But off the top of my head, I think it’s 350F. But can you trust me?!
Add all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
Add all the wet ingredients into a different bowl and mix well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir to combine.
Roll the dough into balls (I made 22 with my mixture but you can get away with making more). Chill the dough balls in the fridge for about 30 minutes because apparently it makes it easier to form the stuffed cookies. That’s what the website says and it worked a treat for me.
To form the stuffed cookie, flatten two dough balls to just larger than the diameter of the Oreo cookies and make a sandwich with the Oreo cookie being in the middle. Pinch together the edges to seal in the Oreo.
Chill the cookies for at least an hour in the fridge. I think I did for about four hours.
*Straight from Rock Recipes blog* It is very important that the dough be very cold before baking. In my opinion this recipe actually works best when baking the cookies from frozen dough. We freeze all of the formed cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet, then transfer them to an airtight plastic container with layers of wax paper or parchment paper separating the layers of prepared frozen cookies. You can then bake as many or as few as you like and have fresh baked cookies ready whenever you want.
Then bake the cookies for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown, swapping the trays halfway through cooking. Because these cookies spread, I ended up using two trays to make 11 cookies.
Allow to cool. And then eat! It’s magical- eating three biscuits in one. The perfect lazy, greedy snack :)
