Sometimes you just need cookies…

Fact. Sometimes you do just need a good cookie to make you feel better. Trust me, I know.

Sometimes only  a hug will do. And a cookie is sort of the same thing. Warm, soft and very tasty.

Sometimes you just need to cry it out. Which is absolutely fine.

But its so so much better to cry over a cookie.

For me, I need this kind of cookie comfort at essay deadline time. When I’m a complete nervous wreck, the only thing that can cheer me up is a good cookie.

These are perfect essay cookies. Easy (and quick) to make, and ridiculously delicious, they are guaranteed make anybody feel better. (Also, for those times when you can’t wait for cookies, the dough is actually just as good, if not better. I probably consumed about half of it raw before they even made it to the oven…

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

(this recipe was adapted from Nigella!)

100 grams of butter

140 grams brown sugar

1 tablespoon golden syrup

1 egg

200 grams plain flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

200g white chocolate chips

In a bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt together the butter, brown sugar and syrup.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.

Beat the egg into the butter mixture, then add the flour mixture. Leave this to cool in the fridge for about an hour, while the oven preheats to 175 degrees.

Once it is cool, mix in the chocolate chips. Using your hands, shape the dough into balls, about the size of walnuts, and place them on a lined baking tray. Make sure you leave some space between them or you will end up with one giant cookie! (That does sort of sound appealing, however…)

Bake for 12-15 minutes. They should still be soft and a light brown colour when they are done!

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea while still warm!
