I've moved my food blog here in order to simplify, so you can expect to see a lot of recipes and baking talk here from now on :)
These cookies are a little different and somewhat rustic. The addition of oats makes them a little healthier for the children but also changes the texture to produce a light crunchy cookie.
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or essence)
1.5 cups of rolled oats
80 grams roughly chopped milk cooking chocolate
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and half the flour as well as the bicarb soda, salt, milk and vanilla. Stir in the rest of the flour with the oats and chocolate.
Place heaped teaspoons of the mix onto a greased or baking papered tray. Bake at 180 degrees (C) or 350 degrees (F) for about 10 minutes. Watch them - they can burn fairly quickly! Cool on the tray for a minute or two, then slide onto cooling racks.
