1 cup of butter (225g) softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs (if you have chickens their fresh eggs will work best)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups plain white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
To make the icing you need:
1 1/2 cups of Icing sugar
20 ml of water
food colouring of your choice
Makes 3 very large cookies
To start, preheat the oven to 180C or 170C fan oven.
Add the eggs into the mix one at a time beat well,
Stir in vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, then stir into the creamed mixture.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
To make the icing you will need to sieve the icing sugar into a bowl then add the water. If the icing is too dry or too thick add a bit more water.
Once you have made the icing put a bit aside in a bowl, food colour that icing.
If you want a thick web cut the hole a bit bigger (this will require more icing).
With your iced cookies pipe a spiral around them using your piping bag then get a skewer/stake and, starting from the middle pull the icing out towards the edges. You can do this as many times as you like.
