Choc Chip Cookies
6 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
8 oz S/R flour
2 oz choc chips
2 oz chopped nuts
3 oz desiccated coconut
Cream butter and sugar together. Add the egg and stir in the flour, choc chips, nuts and coconut.
Roll dough in your hands into walnut sized balls and place well apart on baking sheets. (I use baking parchment - they just slide off)
Bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes and cool on the baking sheets.
Fan oven bake at 170c
Nuts can be replaced with extra chocolate or coconut or raisins - dried cranberries are nice too. Omit the coconut and add dried fruit or leave plain with just the chocolate. I don't by the choc chips - it works out cheaper and you know the quality if you use a bar of 75% cocoa plain chocolate. I just smash them in a bag with a rolling pin - you get a mixuture of nice thick gooey bits and a chocolatty flavour.
