Chocolate Chip Cookie

Here's a quick and easy cookie recipe. The chocolate chip cookie is everyone's favorite and the classic accompaniment is hot milk...yumm. Though I like cookies a lot, I have never dared to enter the cookie-territory. Primarily because of my experience with baking cakes (I had my ups and downs...quite literally). This recipe turned out to be quite an easy one and once again I had surprised myself [pat pat]. Follow the recipe and I can guarantee nothing will ever go wrong....well almost ;)
Butter - 120 gms
Castor sugar - 120 gms
Egg - 1, medium sized
Porridge oats - 105 gms
Milk - 1 ½ tbsp
Cocoa powder - 1 ½ tbsp
Vanilla essence - 1 ½ tsp
Plain flour - 130 gms
Baking powder - ½ tsp
Chocolate chips - 100 gms
Salt - a pinch

Preheat the oven @ 180º C.
In a bowl, combine sugar and butter, mix until fluffy. Beat in egg, mix thoroughly. Now add oats, milk, vanilla essence, mix till nicely blended. Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt into the mixture. To this add and mix the chocolate chips.
Place spoonful of the mixture on baking sheets, slightly flatten with a fork, leave some gap in between (cookie may spread and occupy more space while baking). Bake @ 180º C for around 15 minutes or until the cookies are slightly firm. Remove from the oven and leave it to cool over a wire rack.
This will yield around 13 to 14 delicious and mouthwatering cookies. You may store these in an airtight jar but i would recommend quick consumption as they are quite tempting :)
