Virtual cookies

Now... if only I could send cookies over the internet to those who are stressed... Instead, here is a recipe

Basic Drop Cookies

1.5c plain flour

1 or so tsp baking powder - use more if you want fluffier cookies

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 c sugar (whatever sort you prefer)

5-6 tbsp butter (or nuttelex)

1 tsp vanilla essence (essential - more if preferred)

1 egg

1-2 tbsp milk (or soy)

Cream the butter and sugar, add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat well. Add any extra 'wet' flavourings to this mix. In another bowl, combine dry ingredients (and dry flavourings), then add to wet ingredients a little at a time, beating well. Drop smallish spoonfuls onto a greased baking tray (works really well with something like glad bake), leaving space for cookies to spread. Bake in a moderate oven (350F) for 10-15 minutes or until slightly coloured.

You can add any flavourings you like, but you may need to change quantities of some things. Some of my favourites: - coconut, white chocolate and toasted almonds (or no white chocolate for non-dairy) - cocoa powder and dark chocolate == chocolate choc chip, though milk chocolate would work better - apricot, sultana and oats == healthier - ground hazelnuts and chopped hazelnuts - better if toasted.

You get the idea :>
