Temporary Internet Files

Get it? Pahahaha

Anyway here's some cookies / biscuits.
But calling them biscuits ruins the internet file joke.

Chocolate Chip Half Dipped Thins
  • 1/2 cup butter/margarine
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light or dark soft brown sugar (i used 1/4 cup of each but it's no biggy)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt (salt matters)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup plain flour (i guesstimated)
  • 3/4-1 cup chocolate chips (i improvised and used smashed up minstrels) probably not a whole cup either
  • Bit of chocolate to melt for dippin'
Jeez! Spell checker didn't even correct the word 'guesstimate'. Welcome to the 21st century folks...

Line and lightly grease cookie sheets (baking trays) with parchment and.. erm.. grease.
Preheat to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Recipe calls for a large bowl, not me. I won't judge you on the size of your equipment...
Beat in the egg.
Then stir in vanilla, flour and salt.
Add chocolate chips or minstrels or m&ms or nuts or whatever you want.*

*Not lego.

Drop onto parchment, about 2 tsp per cookie. Leave some space between each one to avoid any funny business; we all know that cookies love each other and will try to unite.

Cook for 10 ish minutes until the edges are golden and the middles are set. 

Leave to cool, cookies will be soft when hot but will crisp up when cool. When they are cool, you can half dip them in melted chocolate and leave to set but they are still yummy just as they are. 

I made some mocha-choca-something thingies too. Will post recipe when I find my notes :)
