Wild Women Choc Chip Cookies

By Di Westaway | Chief Adventure Chick and Founder of Wild Women On Top

These cookies are the most delicious choc chip cookies ever. They are best enjoyed with a cuppa on a clifftop after an awesome hike. 

Ingredients 

  • 250g butter
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2.5 cups plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarb
  • 150g shredded coconut roasted
  • 250g dark chocolate with roast almonds
  • 200g 70% dark chocolate
  • 200g roast slivered almonds or macadamias

 Method

Beat butter, essence, sugars, and eggs with electric mixer until smooth. 

Stir in dry ingredients, mix well. 

Drop walnut sized blobs 5cm apart on a greased oven tray. Bake in moderately hot oven for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Stand for 2 mins before lifting onto wire racks to cool. Makes about 60. 

Store in an airtight container in the freezer. They can be frozen for months (but I doubt they'll last that long!) Enjoy!
