Fair trade Chocolate Chip Cookies
Happy Thursday everyone!
Thanks to those who tuned in to Instagram Live yesterday with my mom and I. It was honestly so much fun and we are already talking about doing it again.
If you missed it, you can rewatch the video here...prepare for a mix of baking and chatting away (mostly laughing at each other)!
Here’s the recipe for the cookies we baked. I originally got it from Allrecipes.com and changed out the ingredients for fair trade ones. What you’ll need:
- 1 cup cane sugar (Camino)
- 1 cup brown sugar (Camino)
- 1 cup softened butter (Rolling Meadow)
- 2 eggs (Nutrispring)
- 2 tsps vanilla extract (Tribal Vanilla)
- 1 tsp baking soda (Dundurn Market)
- ½ tsp salt (So Gourmet)
- 3 cups of all purpose flour (Robin Hood & Me to We)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Camino)
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks (Enjoy Life)
Most ingredients can be found at Ten Thousand Villages, Dundurn Market, or the organic section of your grocery store.
- First, preheat your oven to 350F
- Mix the cane sugar and brown sugar together
- Cream the butter into the mix (I use an electric hand mixer for this step)
- Add eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla extract
- In a separate bowl, dissolve the baking soda with 2 tsps of warm water and then add it to the mix
- Add the salt, then the flour (1 cup at a time)
- Next, add in the chocolate (either 2 cups of chips or 1 cup of chips & 1 cup of chunks)
- Drop mix by the tablespoon-ful onto an ungreased pan
- Bake for 10-15min or until edges are golden brown
- Let cool down and enjoy!
Bonus points if you share them with a neighbour or friend. But no judgement if you eat them all yourself.
I’d love to see your creations! Post them online and tag @fairly.traded
