Recipe no2

This recipe is one i have in the cupboard which means it's one I've tried, i think i remember saying it was one I'd use again which is always a good recommendation. This recipe is for all purpose cookie dough and then the variations are at the bottom of the recipe.

Makes a truckload of cookies!
225g unsalted butter, softened
375g light soft brown sugar
50g caster sugar
3 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
400g plain flour
2 level tsp bicarbonate of soda

The variations are as follows:-

For oatmeal and raisin cookies, reduce the flour to 300g and add 200g rolled oats, 1 tsp cinnamon and 200g raisins. For double peanut butter cookies, replace the butter with 225g crunchy peanut butter (and a little milk if necessary) and stir in 200-400g unsalted or washed peanuts. For dark chocolate chunk cookies, replace 50g flour with 50g cocoa and stir in 400g dark or milk chocolate chopped roughly. Forapricot and almond white chocolate cookies, stir in at the end 200g chopped apricots, 200g chopped blanched almonds and 200g chopped white chocolate.

This recipe is taken from here  I have halved the ingredients with a view to having some ingredients left over for other things and have used a mix of dates and mixed peel amounting to 200g.

First lot just out of the oven, they have had around 15mins but the first batch are slightly over brown so may turn the oven down a bit. 

First impressions

They look great
   They taste pretty good
This recipe made about 60 (and that was half the ingredients!)
So i would give this recipe a 7/10
