Home-made Cookies

Method

  1. In a blender, blend the oats into a fine powder. Mix the oat powder in a bowl with the self raising flour.
  2. With a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Crack in the egg, add the cinnamon and mix well.
  3. Sift in and fold through the flour mix, bi-carb soda and salt. Roughly chop and stir in the chocolate.
  4. Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls and place onto the lined trays. Ask your ALDI MiniRoos to help you with that.
  5. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (you can leave it overnight). Preheat the oven to 170ºC (or 150ºC for fan forced oven). Line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  6. Flatten the balls slightly with your fingers, then place in the hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden (make sure you don't overdo them - the chewier the better). Leave to cool completely.
