day 34 (part II) = biscuit like cookies

i got hungry and needed something sweet. i have Jamie Oliver's "Jamie's Food Revolution" cookbook and so i grabbed that and attempted his cookies. i think i did something slightly incorrect because mine didn't brown around the edges even though i put it in the oven for more time then required. oh well, i tweaked the recipe a bit so maybe that was it. i still liked them. they are not buttery sweet cookies (even though there is a TON of butter in them), they are more like biscuit cookies.

here's what i did:

step 1: gather your ingredients
  • 9 tbsp butter, softened (let sit out about 15 mins)
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar (bakers sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 quick cook oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2oz semi-sweet chocolate

step 2: whisk together flour, oatmeal, baking powder, and salt

step 3: beat egg with a fork

step 4: mix butter and sugar together. add egg. stir in oatmeal by hand

step 5: chop chocolate and hand stir into batter

step 6: preheat oven to 375 degrees and freeze batter for 15 mins to harden

step 7: roll into balls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. cook for 10 mins. transfer to wire rack to cool completely and crisp up!
