bruno's parents dropped in for afternoon tea on sunday, so max and i took the opportunity to whip up a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies, from bill granger's 'sydney food' - quick, simple and delicious, especially eaten warm straight from the oven.
the recipe is perfect for cooking with kids. it is so basic that nothing can really go wrong. max (4 years) was very happy weighing, sifting, breaking eggs, and using the mezzaluna to chop up the chocolate (i didn't have any chocolate chips). just make sure to keep an eye on them in the oven as they only need the merest hint of golden colour to indicate their readiness. the chewier the better, i say.
in his book, bill suggests making a double batch and freezing half for another day. good idea!!! will definitely do that next time. they were a big hit with the kiddies and grandparents. and me and bruno. needless to say, there were none left the following day.
