One of my lovely readers (hi Fiona!) asked for the Amish Cookie recipe, so here it is:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 packet of choc chips
1 tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add egg, water and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
Add plain flour and mix well. Gently stir through the baking soda and choc chips.
Roll a nice big teaspoon full of the mixture into a ball, press down gently with a fork onto a baking tray. Bake in moderate oven (180 degrees) until golden brown - about 12 minutes or so.
Best. Cookie. Ever. I've yet to find a chocolate chip recipe that beats this one!
