Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Cookies!!!  are always welcomed in my house.. any shape, any ingredient but only with one condition, the cookies should have chocolate in it. So when ever I  try new recipe for the cookie I have to replace at least 2 tbsp of flour with cocoa powder.
It was a long time that I baked anything at home. Few days back my younger daughter told me in the morning "mamma, you have become very lazy now a days, you are not baking any cake or cookies for us" That was it,, I started to search the recipes from my other blogger friends and I landed in    's blog. And wanted to give a try to this Chocolate Chips Butter Cookies. But again came the problem of Cocoa powder., and the answer was simple, Replace little amount of flour with cocoa powder.
When I started getting the things to bake these cookies, my daughter came into kitchen. She always love to help me in the kitchen and she is always curious about the ingredients and how to make it. When I prepared the dough, she told me to make biggggggg cookies as she wanted to have it more at a time. Then I remembered my mini flower cup cake baking moulds  which I brought from Pune. 
Here are the jumbo cookies which got vanished within a day.
Planning to bake some more from Jagruti's place, which are prepared with wheat flour and oats..Mixed Nuts, Oats and Whole Wheat Cookies !

All purpose flour(Maida) -2 cup
Cocoa powder - 1/4 cup
Butter - 1/2 cup(room temp)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Egg - 1 
Baking powder -1/4 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp


Preheat the oven at 180degree c.
Take all the dry things in a bowl and mix well.
Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Beat in  the egg, mix well.
Then goes the dry flour mix.
Add the choco chips
Mix well to make a soft dough. 
Take small ball from a dough, press slowly it from in your palm. Repeat with the remaining dough. hey, wait, I pressed the dough in to the mould I had.
Arrange these in a baking tray with a little space in between(if using baking tray)and keep in the oven., I kept the mini moulds directly in the oven.
Bake these for 10-12 minutes.
Remove and allow it to cool. They will be crispy after sometime.
Enjoy these with hot cup of coffee, tea or a glass of milk.

Keep Smiling,
