First Therapy Session : chocolate chips cookies

Welcome dear friends to my first therapy session in the kitchen. 

Come on don`t be shy. Don`t let my horrible spelling and German ways take the fun out of it.

Sit down take a cookie, have some tea or milk. 

But you have to be fast, the twins are somewhere nearby and they love my cookies. 
The cookies are on the table in the jar, take one I made some extra this evening. 

What do you say? There are no cookies? 

You have got to be kidding. My boys ate them all.

Don`t panic! we make some more. 

It`s easy, it`s funny, the kitchen will smell delicious and if me make enough dough we can even freeze some for later. 

chocolate chips cookies 


1 cup butter 
2/3 cup sugar 
1 cup brown sugar 
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
½ teaspoon baking powder 
½ teaspoon baking soda 
2 eggs 
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract 
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 

Heat oven to 375° F / 190 Grad Celsius. Line you baking sheets with parchment. 

Sift the dry Ingredients together ( the flour, salt, and baking soda/powder) in a mixing bowl. 
Combine the egg, milk, and vanilla in another bowl. 

Now you only have to cream the butter in the mixer`s bowl. Add the sugar and beat the mix until it`s light and fluffy. It`s time to add the egg mixture, but please don`t forget to reduce the speed before you do so. 
When all is well combined you slowly add the flour mixture. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. like to add the chocolate chips by hand but you could do it by machine. 
Scoop onto the baking sheets with a spoon or a Ice cream scooper, 6 cookies per sheet . 

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, starting to check them after 5 minutes. 

If you are so inclined you can rotate the baking sheet for more even browning. 

Remove the cookies from the pans as fast as possible and let them cool. 

Store or better hide them in an airtight container. 

But since you are here why not have one or two. As long as they are still a little on the warm side with a cold glass of milk. 

Oh no our time is up for today. 
I hope we see us in the next session. Have a great time.
