Chocolatechips Cookie Bars.....step by step.



Chocolate Chips Cookie Bars, oh yes!! there are so quick and easy to make....the chocolate bits in every bite takes you to heaven and back!!

Food has the ability to make complete strangers friends and blogging has given me that, one such friend is Mitha. We exchange mails and have become from strangers to friends in a very short period of time. Surprisingly the main topic of our conversation will be food.

I admire women who balance home and work and Mitha is one such woman......she loves to bake after coming from office, not to mention the hectic office work, traffic jams, a beautiful baby at home....... Whenever I come across an easy recipe I would try it keeping in mind my two sis-in-laws who try to balance work and home.....and I always recommend those easy recipes to them.

Coming back to these bar cookies, the best thing about them is you don't have to roll each one, place two inch apart on the baking sheet....etc etc.....just spread on the baking sheet and bake them...so easy!

These cookie bars are studded with chocolate chips and have a crunchy outer crust with a gooey center. These are so easy to make that you will stick to them forever!

I just love making these super simple cookie bars.


The mantra is make the cookie dough, spread them, bake them, slice them and oh! yeah! munch on them. If you like it to be on the crispier side...just increase 5 minutes of baking time.



Recipe Source: fakeginger.com

Ingredients:

Butter: 1/2 cup/1 stick.
Granulated sugar: 1/4 cup.
Brown sugar: 1/2 cup (I mix 1 tsp of jaggery to granulated white sugar to get brown sugar; if you want more darker brown sugar can add up to 2 tbsp of jaggery).
Egg: 1.
Flour: 1 Cup.
Vanilla essence: 1 tsp.
Baking powder: 1 tsp.
Salt : 1/4 tsp (omit if using salted butter)
Chocolate chips: 1 cup.

Method:

Line a baking pan.



2. Melt butter, stir in granulated sugar and brown sugar.

3. Add egg...(you don't have to take out your egg beater, just your whisk is enough to make these bars).



4. Add vanilla.

5. Dunk in flour, baking powder, and salt.

6. Stir with whisk until combined.

7. Now the best part....fold in chocolate chips. Meanwhile preheat oven to 180 degree C.

8. Give it a soft stir.

9. Pour into prepared pan.

10. Spread evenly (the dough might be a little thick).

Bake for 15 to 20 min or until golden brown and a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cut into your desired shape while still warm.


Serve with a glass of milk. This will keep well in an air tight container for a week (if your kids permit).

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
