For the chocolate chip cookie recipe and more tips about baking, check this post.
3 1/4 cups of sifted flour
2 butter sticks melted and sitting at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
raisins as desired
nuts as desired
Optional (to Americanize it a bit you can add few chocolate chips 😋)
In a medium bowl, sift the flour.
Add the baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, raisins and the salt to the flour. Mix them together.
In your kitchen mixer, add the sugar, butter (not fully melted and at room temp.) and vanilla, mix until they are fluffy and the color is lighter.
Now add 1 egg at a time and beat well after each egg addition.
Now add the flour mix gradually while mixing. Do not over mix it at this point so the cookies do not get hard.
Mix in the raisins and nuts with a spoon and fold them slowly. Shape them with your hands into random round shapes or balls on a cookie sheet (I use parchment paper over the cookie sheet).
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Cool down before eating.
