White Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies

Last Tuesday, Chris and Kok from C.K. Bakeries™ decided to bake cookies instead of cakes. What a breakthrough!

White chocolate and macadamia cookies.

The reason we baked cookies instead of cakes is because we have baked almost every flavour of the pre-mixed cakes which are sold in the supermarket.

Basic first lah.

Since we have no experience in cookies, we decided to try those cookies which are easier to bake first. Or, are cookies easier to bake than cakes?

Instructions at the back of the box.

Just four simple steps and the cookies are ready.

The most important equipment, Mr. Toaster.

First, pre-heat oven/toaster...

Don't forget your baking tray.

...and grease the baking tray. Actually, you can use baking paper instead of grease it with margarine.

Baking can be fun! ;)

After that, take a photo mix everything using a wooden spoon until it is all combined before using hands to further mix in order to create a dough.

Almost there...

Next, roll 1 heaped tablespoon of mixture into a ball and place onto the baking tray. Alternatively, just roll the mixture to the amount that you want. But don't make the 'ball' too big. Or else, it will end up not baked.

First batch of our cookies!

Bake the mixture for 10-12 minutes and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring onto the cooling rack. We didn't follow the instructions though. :P

Second batch of our cookies!

Since our toaster is quite small, we could only placed 9 cookies at a time. Just a reminder here, place the balls of mixture on the baking tray with enough space in between each other so that they have enough space to "grow bigger".

Comparison between the first and second batch of cookies.

The first batch seemed to be overbake. Practice makes perfect. ;)


The cookies turned out to be not too bad despite overbaked for the first time.

Chris, what and when is our next "project"?
