INGREDIENTS USED IN CHOCOLATE COOKIES
ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
I am using all- purpose flour to make my easy chocolate cookies. It gives that nice crisp and structure to the cookies. You can use whole wheat flour also in same proportion for a healthier version of these easy chocolate cookies.
To make these cookies chocolatey I’m using this unsweetened cocoa powder by Cadbury. It gives that immense chocolate flavour to any baked good. You can use any good quality cocoa powder which is easily available to you in nearby grocery stores.
Butter is the main ingredient in making cookies as it gives richness and tenderness to the cookies. We alter the way butter works in a recipe by changing its temperature and for these easy chocolate cookies I have used this salted butter which will give a crispy structure to the cookie.
It is the prime ingredient in my easy chocolate cookies. It adds sweetness and richness to the cookies. Here I’m using this condensed milk. You can use Amul mithai mate also, or any condensed milk.
EQUIPMENT USED FOR MAKING THESE EASY CHOCOALTE COOKIES
The kind of equipment you use when you’re baking makes a huge difference to the end result! I would recommend you to use good quality mixing bowls and other equipment so that your chocolate cookies come out delicious!
To mix all my ingredients together in, I’m using Borosil’s 100% Borosilicate Glass Bowl which is microwave and oven safe, plus the bowls are super easy to clean and handle, which makes my baking process totally hassle free!
And they are ready in less than 20 mins in my oven.
TIPS TO MAKE THESE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Make sure the butter is very cold. To check this, touch the butter with your finger and if it doesn’t stick to it it’s good to go.
Mix flour, cocoa powder and butter with Rubbing method until you get a nice Sandy texture. If making in a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment.
There shouldn’t be chunks of butter in the batter.
Freeze cookies for 10-15 mins before baking.
