Recipe For Chocolate Chip Cookies

This month, the Crazy Cooking Challenge is to make chocolate chip cookies. Being sucrose intolerant, this is one recipe I have not tried before, as it necessitates chopping up whole sugar free chocolate, and I have never really been bothered to go to all that work for a simple cookie. However, being challenged I set about searching the South African web pages for inspiration.

As you can see from my widgets, I am a yuppie chef and so I went to their on line magazine and found an article on the science behind chocolate chip cookies and so used their recipe to create my sugar free version. I have a digital scale and it shows ounces and grams and so the grams in the recipe are the exact measurements. However, you can round them up / down to the nearest whole reading and it will work out the same.

  1. What the heck is this “Net Assistant” thing that keeps popping up, and taking over you page when I scroll? That Troll didn’t leave you a land mine did he?
    Probably something WordPress has recently added without telling us…like they did when my editing page went hay-wire the other night, while I was editing, and they were changing the “Admin-Bar” Oh well,…Hey, It’s Free, who am I going to complain to?.. If it is a bug, and you need help, I may be able to assist….Bless You
