Half-Bake Revision Cookies

My cooking skills are still a work in progress, but when I find a good recipe I do like to use it often! I’ve baked 5 batches of these delicious cookies in the last few weeks.

Half bake cookies

The recipe (from a friend):

Makes about 35 cookies

  1. Pre-heat oven to GM 5 or 180 degrees C.
  2. Mix together:
    scant 150g margarine
    165g granulated sugar
    165g dark brown soft sugar
    1 egg
    1tsp vanilla essence
  3. Stir in generous 300g plain flour with 1 tsp bicarb and 0.5tsp salt, then one pack (approx 120g) choc chips, nuts, smarties, raisins etc. I like to use milk chocolate chunks rather than chips
  4. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking parchment lined baking tray (metal, not silicone)
  5. Bake for 8-10minutes removing from oven when they look puffed up but still very pale
  6. Leave on the baking tray for a further 10-15 mins to finish cooking – this gives the half-bakes gooey texture!

These are very moreish when warm and go down a treat with all ages. They are also BRILLIANT for revision. Doing 10-15mins targeted revision fits perfectly with the 10 mins in, 15 mins out way of cooking these. Revision is more productive at the bitesize speedy chunks and cookie production is an added bonus. Yum!
