How to cook a cookie with chocolate chips in just 15 minutes?
Those who love chocolate, melting in the mouth,definitely have to like a recipe for biscuits with large chocolate chips. In order to cook it, you do not need much time. To prepare this delicious dish you will need such components as:
- flour - 3 cups,
- vanilla - 1 teaspoon,
- 2 eggs,
- melted margarine - 200 gr.,
- brown sugar - 1 glass,
- salt - 1 teaspoonful,
- soda - 1 teaspoon,
- chocolate crumbs - a little less than one glass (you can be whole if you really like chocolate).
Of such quantity of products you shouldget at least 40 pieces of cookies. Method of preparation: First you need to prepare all the necessary tools: a deep bowl, a grater, measuring instruments (spoons and glasses), a whisk, a spoon for spreading the dough on a baking sheet, a spatula for removing the finished cookie (you can prepare for the time the biscuit is bake), a jar for storing cookies. After this, it is necessary to melt the margarine. You can do this either with a stewpan or with a bucket. Melted margarine (which can be completely replaced with butter) on very slow fire so that it does not boil very much (in this case everything that will be on the plate and next to it will be splashed with oil stains if it does happen , it is better to immediately wash the stained surface with a degreaser). This method also helps prevent oil and margarine from burning to the bottom of the bucket. Usually it takes about 1-2 minutes to kindle, depending on how much margarine or oil you put in the stewpan. If you cook at once for several norms, then this tank should be taken deeper, so that the melted mass does not escape from it. Next, pour the melted margarine in a deep bowl, add sugar to it and whisk this mixture gay. If you are not a supporter of own mixing of the components of a dish, you can use a mixer and mix it at low speed. Then, when the margarine has cooled to room temperature, you can add eggs to it. This is necessary to do, just wait a while, so that the eggs do not boil in boiling oil. You can even whip them in a separate bowl beforehand, and then add them to a common bowl. While you are giving margarine, mixed with sugar, to cool, you should turn on the oven and heat it to a temperature of 180 degrees. Once the eggs are added and intervened in the mass, it is necessary to pour in it more vanillin. All this is again thoroughly mixed, and then gradually added flour, salt and soda. In order to make the mass homogeneous, and in the finished cookies you do not feel the aftertaste of soda later, you should separately mix the flour, soda and salt, and not add them alternately. The very last thing we do is cut chopped chocolate. If you just like chocolate chip cookies, then you can grate the chocolate on a large grater, and if, on the contrary, you like to find whole pieces of chocolate in a confectionery product, it's better to chop the chocolate with a knife. Knead crumb in the dough is better with a conventional spatula or a tablespoon. Even after adding the final ingredient, you do not need to beat the resulting mass with a mixer. The pan should be greased with vegetable oil and covered with parchment for baking. On it with the help of two teaspoons it will be necessary to lay out circles from the dough. They should be placed at a distance of 2-2.5 cm from each other, since in the process of baking they can increase in size and stick together. So, if you do not want to have one big pie instead of a cookie, put the future cookies on the baking tray so as to avoid it. If the oven has already warmed up, you can send the completed blanks to the oven. Prepare the cookie until it hardens. Do not forget about this method of verification. as a toothpick. Having pierced several cookies, it will be possible to determine whether they are ready or not (if the toothpick is completely dry and there are traces of dough on it, then the cookie is baked). In general, this process takes no more than 20 minutes. So, if you have any urgent business at this time, do not forget to set the timer on the oven for a maximum of 15 minutes. After you have made sure that the cookies are ready, you need to take it out and lay it out first in a regular plate. In it it must cool down. And after that it can be added to a special jar for biscuits. If you miss the process of cooling cookies in an open bowl, and immediately put it in a jar and close it, it will get wet due to the fact that, evaporating, the hot air will not go out, but will settle back on the biscuits. Thus, cookies with chocolate chips can be cooked very quickly from the most basic ingredients, which are often kept in the refrigerator or in the cupboard of each mistress.
Simple cookies with chocolate
It would seem that there is nothing simpler than that recipe,which has already been mentioned. But, oddly enough, such a recipe exists. It practically does not differ from the previous version, but assumes more diverse ways of forming baking because the dough is kneaded more steep. In order to try, what kind of taste this cookie, and also in the case if you have children who get bored of the same kind of cookies, you can quite pamper them with a variety of baked figures. This will depend on how developed your imagination and fine motor skills of your hands. The preparation of such a cookie requires the following ingredients:
- flour - 300 gr.,
- butter - 150 gr.,
- 1 egg,
- half a teaspoon of soda (you can use a baking powder),
- a quarter teaspoon of salt,
- sugar - 250 g.,
- 1 chocolate.
- 1 teaspoon of vanillin.
Cooking method: In order for the cookies to turn out not too sweet, the culinary experts advise using bitter chocolate, which should contain at least 40% cocoa. If you add milk chocolate, the confectionery product will turn out to be too sweet. Therefore, you can also use dark chocolate. The most important condition for preparing such a biscuit is that before baking the dough should be cooled for several hours in the refrigerator. From the above quantity of products, about 20 separate cookies will be obtained. If you plan a big feast, or if there are a lot of sweeties in your family, then such quantity will obviously not be enough for you. Therefore, you should increase the amount of all ingredients by 2-3 times. First it is necessary to sift the flour again with salt and soda (which can be replaced with a baking powder). This allows you to distribute all the necessary components in equal proportion throughout the mass of the test. After that, this loose mixture can be left for a while separately, while you start kneading the dough. First, for 3 minutes, beat the softened butter with sugar. In this case, it is not necessary to melt the oil in a ladle on fire, as it was in the previous cookie recipe. It's enough just to leave it for a few hours in a warm place. Once the mass becomes creamy, it will be possible to add egg and vanilla sugar to the mass. All this is mixed up again. Then add flour mixture to this mass and mix it with a spatula or spoon. In a well-mixed mass, chopped chocolate should be added. Again, depending on which chocolate you prefer, you can break the chocolate into large pieces or chop it up finely. Gently knead the resulting mass, which you need to put a slide on food film, wrap and send to the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. If you decided in advance to prepare everything, then you can do this the night before and leave the dough to cool for a whole night. The next morning or after the allotted time it is necessary to take out the dough and you can mold absolutely any figures from it. They will depend only on how much your imagination will suffice you, as well as on how well developed your fine motor skills are. The oven for baking this baking should also be preheated to a temperature of 180 degrees. While it is warming up, it is necessary to roll out such figures as you like most from the dough. These can be ordinary lozenges, pretzels or even balls. In all cases, it is necessary to gradually separate the pieces of dough from the total mass and mold out biscuits from them. The pan should be smeared with butter, then put parchment paper on it, and then you can add the molded balls or lozenges. To do this it is necessary, keeping the same distance between products, as during the preparation they can increase in size several times. Furnace such a cookie with chocolate chips is necessary until it is covered with a golden crust (no more than 20 minutes). Usually such a cookie is best suited for a snack, it can also be consumed with milk or completely cooled down, or directly hot.

- butter - 70-80 gr.,
- 2 eggs,
- 1 cup of brown sugar,
- vanilla - 1 teaspoon,
- a pinch of salt,
- 1 teaspoon baking powder,
- flour - 200 gr.,
- 1-2 Chocolates.
Again, do not forget about what kind of chocolateshould be used when baking. In this recipe, chocolate should consist of at least 70% natural cocoa. First, mix the flour with the baking powder in a separate bowl. In order to knead the dough, it is better to use a food processor. First, mix the softened butter with sugar and eggs, then add vanillin and salt. After this, the flour with the baking powder is added and the dough is mixed. After that, you need to prepare the chocolate. To do this, it must be divided into 2 parts. First half grate on a small grater, and the second - chop into large pieces. Carefully pour all the crushed chocolate into the dough and mix with a spatula. Bake the same way as in the previous recipe.
