During our last BM, I was so taken in by Gayathri's Cookies that I wanted to try them myself. I modified a bit to suit what I had on hand. As always she gives such wonderful step by step recipe that it works great to for anybody. I also had some pictures of cookies that I wanted to recreate and I tried out with this recipe, I know these didn't look so fetching as those, still I was happy with the way the pictures turned out.
We liked the fact that these were chewy and had that crunchy taste of sugar granules. And biting into those melted chocolate chunks and chips was a delight.
Sieve the flour along with baking soda and a pinch of salt.
Then add the flour to the butter mixture and fold in well.
Next add the chocolate chunks and chips and mix well.
Refrigerate for 30 mins.Preheat oven to 185C.
Once done, remove the dough and make lemon sized balls out of the dough and place 2" apart on a greased baking tray.
Flatten each ball with a fork.
If you want to use buttermilk, then 2 tsp of curds and 2 tbsp water to get 1/3 cup.
The dough will be soft, so if you refrigerate it will be easy to handle. Even then the cookies tend to spread and become thin.
