Step 1: Preparation
Shall we start?
The first thing to do is to gather all your stuff and lay it on the table. Make sure nothing is missing!
500 g. of plain flour
200 g. of plain sugar
250 g. (1 stick) of butter
200 g. of chocolate or chocolate chips
100 g. of peanuts, hazelnuts, dried fruits... whatever will do
10 g. (1 little bag) of baking powder
Some vanilla extract
A mixer with a mixing bowl
A weighing bowl
Any dishes to keep the flower and the sugar in
Some baking paper
A pan to bake the cookies into
Step 2: Let the game begin
Just cut the stick of butter in few smaller pieces, throw it in the mixing bowl and turn on the mixer.
Mix the butter for about 6-7 minutes.
Step 3: The eggs
You should get a homogenate mixture in the end.
Step 4: The sugar
You might want to decrease the speed of the mixer, but make sure you turn it back up again.
Let it mix for another 6-7 minutes, or so. The mixture should be a bit foamy and smooth in the end.
