Spent most of today exploring Geopark sites in Cavan. As part of work. Yes. Work! 💚 This is Killykeen Forest Park and it’s just a magical setting with a special, tranquil vibe about it. Not to mention the spectrum of tones and colours in the trees. Happy Out. .

OHHH YESSSS….These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are possibly up there as my very favourites. This is a perfect day for some cosy baking. Let me know how you get on.. see Recipe below from my book Rachel’s Everyday Kitchen , @harpercollinsire @harpercollinsuk #baking #cosy #cosybakingday #doublechocolate #doublechocolatechip #doublechocolatechipcookies Makes 20 large cookies-never enough


225g butter, softened

325g caster sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

225g flour

75g cocoa powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ tsp salt 175g dark chocolate chips

 

Preheat the oven to 175’C.
Line 3 baking trays with parchment paper .

Place the butter in a mixing bowl and beat until very soft. Add in the sugar and beat to mix well. Continue to beat and add the eggs in one by one followed by the vanilla extract. Sift in the sifted flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix in until combined.

With wet hands, form the dough into balls the size of a golf ball (or use 2 soup spoons to scoop onto the tray) . Arrange on the tray , about 6 or 7 on each tray, leaving space for the cookies to spread.

If you’re using a fan oven, cook all three trays at once (at 150’ FAN ‘C). Cook for 9-11 minutes until they look slightly cracked on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove from the tray and place on a wire rack to cool completely. PS- You can just bake a few and keep the cookie dough in the fridge rolled up into a salami shape in parchment paper, then slice to bake when you fancy. 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪
