 I am lucky to know this amazing lady, the mother of a
bubbly 4 year old boy in my preschool class. 
She is the kind of person who no matter what is calm and assured .  She is a busy mother of six, including a new
born boy, and yesterday I discovered that she is the author of the food blog
called ‘Cabinet of Cookery’ and that she finds the time to post every night.
I can’t help thinking that there must be some kind of magic
that motivates such a person. To be so busy with life and still find time to write every night is truly magical.  Not to mention finding inspiration for what to write about and the hours needed to shop,
prepare and cook the delicious dishes that appear on her blog.  Maybe its more than magic, maybe its true passion.
But whatever drives a person to lead such a full and joyful life is
inspirational.
So last night I decided to have a look at her blog, in the
hope I could find an easy recipe that I could cook in my preschool room with
her son and his friends.  Her latest
post was choc chip cookies, the recipe is easy and child friendly…….perfect…….
four year olds just love to help bake cookies. I decided to add the white chocolate for a bit of decadence and the resulting cookies were truly scrumptious.

So this is what you
need
125g butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
100g dark choc chips
100g white chocolate chopped
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self raising flour
¼ cup rolled oats




And this is what you
do

  • Heat oven to 180 degrees (fan forced)
  • Whisk together melted butter, sugar and vanilla
  •  Now put the whisk away the rest of mixing is
    done by hand
  • Add flour, oats, egg and chocolate
  • Combine ingredients, knead and turn with one
    hand while other hand steadies the bowl
  • When just combined, roll walnut size balls and
    place on lined baking tray.  Not too
    close as biscuits spread a bit when cooking
  • Pat  balls
    down fingers, and pot into oven for 15 minutes.  Don’t be tempted to cook for longer or the cookies will become hard.
   
The only problem I had was that most of the cookies disappeared while they were still warm.  But then there is something so comforting about eating cookies that have just come out of the oven.  Yummm
