Poh Ling's Chewy chocolate chip Cookies

Three cheers to the Australian Masterchef runner up, Poh Ling Yeow! Her recipe for these cookies, published on the Herald Sun on 14 November 2010 is really good!

I made 2 different kinds of these chewy cookies. One batch is the chocolate chips pecan nuts cookies for my next door neighbor who just had twins!...and the other batch is Oreo and chocolate chips cookies for ourselves. These cookies are really fantastic if you are big fan of soft
cookies and I am!

Oreo and chocolate chips cookies - Take a look at its chewy inside...yum!
Here is the recipe from the Herald Sun newspaper article.

170 g butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg
1 2/3 cup plain flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
200g chocolate, roughly chopped (I use a mixture of dark and milk chocolate chips)
1 cup of nuts of choice, roughly chopped (I use pecan nuts or Oreo for another batch)

1. Preheat oven to 170°C or 160°C (fan forced). Line oven trays with baking paper
2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. While beating, add one egg at a time and mix thoroughly until combined.
3. Stir in sifted dry ingredients and mix to incorporate. Add chocolate and nuts (or chopped Oreo) and mix evenly.
4. Dollop 1/4 cup of cookies dough (I did them in smaller portion, 1 tbsp each) onto tray with 5 cm apart.
5. Bake about 12-15 minutes. Cool on tray for 5 min and transfer to rack to cool.
Note: Over-baked cookies will lose their chewiness and will be crispy instead. Her recipe makes 20-22 cookies. I made 25 cookies.

Happy Baking
