How to make cookies?

To hell with the calories, it's snack time and the mind is racing at the thought of eating something genuinely good. So we go to his pantry and there bingo, there's enough to make cookies, yay!

Cookie dough recipe

For about thirty cookies, mix 110 g of soft butter with 100 g of powdered sugar and 100 g of brown sugar (for example vergeoise, a brown and moist sugar). Beat until the sugar is well melted and the mixture is homogeneous. Then add 225 g of flour, 1 pinch of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, a few drops of vanilla extract and 1 whole egg. Work the dough for a long time, first with a spatula, then by hand. Then stir in the ingredients of your choice:chocolate chips or shavings, for example.

Baking cookies

Once the cookie dough is ready, divide the dough in two, and shape into sausages. You can then cut them into slices. Place the cookies thus formed on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven on thermostat 6 (180°C). Do not overcook them:to be successful, your cookies must be crispy on the outside but still soft and soft on the inside. Let the cookies cool before eating them. You can also eat them warm if you wish! The extra trick:before baking your cookies, let the dough rest for between 30 minutes and 1 hour in the refrigerator. You will thus obtain large, very thick cookies, which will not spread too much.
