Last Saturday, after going out almost the entire day, I finally managed to make it home at about 10:30pm. I wanted to make a batch of cookies for my friend to bring to his brother the next day. Mmm..luckily I remembered that I have a bag of preMix in the kitchen cabinet... Betty Crocker's Chocolate Chips.
All I needed was a stick of butter (haha..that was easy coz I checked this the last time after talking to babe_kl). A stick of butter is roughly 125gm, which is half a block of a 227gm of Anchor butter. Plus 1 egg and I am ready to go.
Followed the instructions to the T (which was only 3 lines heehee). It saids, "Beat-Drop-Bake" and it was really as easy as that. This is definitely a must try for my friend Superhero S of A Tale of Two Superheroes. But as I am rather a Nut(ty) person, I added a whole bag of strips into the cookie mixture.
Give everything a good mix and best part is you can chuck in everything together and mix it all up in one go.
I had to bake the cookies in about 4 batches as my oven was very small (at 180C coz the pack did not specify oven heat... or maybe eyes blur.. missed out that little instruction).
....note that they are much thinner than those shown on the box.. wanted to make more than what the instructions suggested ... I think the box said 9 to 12 pieces.. I've got more than 20 :)
By the time I finished, it was only slightly past midnite. Not bad wor.. haha.. I mean the time taken to do it. Plus the cookie tasted quite yummy.. in fact much nicer than one recipe which I did (which turned out to be a mite too sweet). My conclusion... preMixes are great too.. especially if you are short of time and have insufficient cooking utensils :)
