Pieday Friday – Chocolate chip cookie cups

| 7 Comments

What better way to serve ice-cream and chocolate sauce than in freshly baked cookie cups, eh? I don’t know where I conjured up this idea from in my mind but when my family recently popped round for an impromptu meal, the cookie cups were something I really wanted to try out. I knew I had ice-cream in the freezer but wanted to serve it in a more exciting way than just in a bowl with some sprinkles. So I dug out my trusty chocolate chip cookie recipe (eggless, which is great for allergy sufferers) and set to work creating some yummy ‘bowls’ in which to serve my vanilla ice cream.pieday friday baking recipe cookie cups pudding dessert chocolate chip-13 pieday friday baking recipe cookie cups pudding dessert chocolate chip-11 pieday friday baking recipe cookie cups pudding dessert chocolate chip-12Ingredients (makes 4 large cookie cups or 12 small cookies): 175g plain flour, 75g butter, 50g light brown sugar, 150g chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons golden syrup, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda, 1 pinch of salt.

    • Thank you Anca! I bet this will be fun to make with the kids, they can do all the mixing and get gooey with the dough! Watch out with the temperature of the cookies when they come out of the oven though – too hot for little hands! 😉
