I got a lot of things to share with you all yesterday. However, for today’s entry I will only share about my choc chip’s making last nite.
After sungkai, my hubby out of the blue proposes to me to make my choc chips tonight.
Im like, what?! Hmmmm…. “I don’t think we have enough time to finish all the 2 recipes Abang” I told him. Then, he kept saying “sempat sayang. Cubalah dulu.” All the way from my in law’s house to our house, I keep thinking about how Im gonna tackle all the unprepared things before I could start making the cookies. I haven’t clean my oven, haven’t take out my butter from the fridge, I haven’t wash my weighing etc…
So, when we reached home, to make things easier, my hubby helps me to clean the oven. Ok, settle one issue. For my part, I took out my butter, wash all the cooking utensils needed etc etc… tried my best and pray hard that we will have enough time to finish all the cookies tonight.
FYI, due to all the sudden, first time ever in my life I battered the butter when it still in cold and hard condition. Hahahaha… So funny and desperate! Hopefully it won’t affect my cookie’s recipe later.
Hehehhehe… after all the hard works, I managed to finish all the processes at about 12am in the morning, including cleaning my kitchen. Alhamdulillah…. And the choc chips also turn out very well compared to my last year’s one. Ngeh ngeh ngeh…
So, below are some photos related to the choc chip’s making:
My very traditional oven (could you see the "batu lesung" on top of the oven? usually we use it to weight down the oven)
looking inside my traditional oven
We managed to get about 300pcs of choc chips cookies for 2 recipes :-)
I got the recipe from hanieliza fotopages and modify a bit (I didnt use the white choc chips).
160gm fine sugar
1 egg yolk
1 t/s vanillah essence
Ingredients B (combine all together):
230gm super fine flour
20gm cocoa powder
100gm choc chips
50gm white choc chips
50gm roasted almond strips
batter the butter and fine sugar until creamy. Then, add in yolk and the vanilla essence. Batter well again. Stir in ingredient B. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking pan. bake for 25 mins at 180 degree celcius (my oven doesnt have timer neither the temperature control. So, I have to monitor it manually. Really old school and kampung style... hahahaha)
