Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is amazing how a chocolate chip cookie and a cold glass of milk can do to you on those days when you may not be feeling very good.. It is such a soothing feeling.. my son loves these cookies so this time around I thought why not try and make these cookies for him.

I baked these cookies early one morning before rushing for work.

After I came back home and I had to rush into a Telecon. So it was well past my son's dinner time when I finally got to talk to him. He comes to me and says that he needs to tell me a secret. that while his grandparents were sleeping he sneaked into the kitchen pulled a chair and ate a cookie because he loved it so much. That was the best compliment that I can ever imagine. He is my greatest critic and fan.

With that story I here by give the recipe for these wonderful cookies.
  1. 1 cup Butter
  2. 1 cup Jaggery (Powdered)
  3. 1/4 cup granulated Sugar
  4. 2 Eggs
  5. 1 1/2 tsp of Vanilla Essence/Extract
  6. 2 cups of Atta
  7. 1 tsp Baking Powder
  8. 1/2 tsp of Salt
  9. 2 cups of Chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree centigrade.

Combine the butter with the jaggery and the sugar and beat it for a minute or two till well combined. Then add the eggs and vanilla essence. Beat for some more times.

Add Baking Powder and salt to the Atta and mix well. Gradually add this into the wet mix combining carefully. Lastly add the chocolate chips. You can either use store brought or you can make tiny pieces of chocolate that you get such as Hershey's, DairyMilk etc. I used Hershey's extra dark chocolate for making these cookies.

Once all the mixture is combined well make it into laddoo shape balls and arrange it on a pre-greased baking tray. I make 6 cookies at one time since the tray that I have is quite small.

Bake it for 10 minutes and then take the cookies out of the oven.

Let it rest for a couple of minutes more after which you can transfer it to a cooling rack. Enjoy your cookies.
