Day 24 - Choc chip cookies for afternoon tea

There has to be an upside to working from home above and beyond being able to wear daggy clothes and use your own toilet. Making afternoon tea for the boys was it yesterday.

This biccie recipe has been a foundation stone of my baking repertoire since around 1986. So in honour of their 20 year anniversary, here they are: (btw: it's a failproof Women's Weekly recipe)

125g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 SR flour
125g choc chips
65g nuts

Preheat oven to 160C
Cream butter with sugars
Add egg and vanilla
Stir in flour
Fold through choc chips and nuts

Roll into teaspoon sized balls
Bake for 10-12 minutes.

They are, as easy as that.

Options: yesterday I didn't do nuts, couldn't be bothered and didn't have any (milk choc with walnuts, white choc with macadamias is the standard rule). I did, however double the recipe and make half white choc and half with milk choc.
