Mice chocolate chip cookies

As promised Baccharis the baker mouse would like to show you his secret recipe
 for chocolate chip cookies.

Baccharis and Asmina from the chestnut stub are enjoying a quiet
 Sunday afternoon in the kitchen. Baking cookies and chatting for hours.

The famous mice chocolate chip cookies

Here is the recipe:

Chocolate chip cookies

1 cup butter room temperature, but not too soft
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar

Preheat oven to 350 F or 175 Celsius
Cream together butter and sugar in mixer until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at the time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add it to batter along with salt. Stir in flour and cream of tartar. Then stir in the chocolate chips. Put on baking sheet aligned with paper. Use an ice-cream scoop. Press the cookies a bit down with your hand. Not to much but just as it is no longer dome shaped. Bake for about 11 minutes. Makes 24 large cookies. Cool on baking tray.

Asminia's kitchen is warm and inviting. She likes to make pickles from  the garden produce and cook on both her stoves. For large parties they are a must.


Enjoying a book while Baccharis bake the cookies.

Asminia and Baccharis wish you a nice weekend, and do try their cookies. They are "micelicious"

  4. I love the kitchen. It must be wonderful to cook in such a kitchen. There are wonderful details in it. Thank you for the recipe.
