cookie monster!!

Ok so you're home alone, hungry and a little bit emotional. what do you do?
make the best cookies EVER and eat them until you feel all better :)

what you will need:

1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tbs vanilla essence
180g melted butter
1 cup flour
1 1/2 self raising flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup caster sugar (or raw sugar if you want a crunchy surprise)
1 cup macadamia nuts (or i tried it with un salted cashews and they were just as good)
1 cup choc chips (a big cup. lets face it its not a healthy snack you might as well make them chocolaty awesome)
2 big spoons.

how to make them:

pre-heat oven to about 180*C
combine all the flours and sugar together until the flour turns brown.
make a well in the middle and add melted butter, egg and vanilla essence.
this is probably a good time to add the nuts and chocolate
then stir around until it forms a dough consistency
grease up an oven tray
then get your 2 spoons and scoop some mixture into a ball and place onto tray repeat until all the mixture is gone.
cook for 10 - 15 minutes
and let them cool a little so they dont fall apart when eating them!

seriously the easiest, quickest way to make cookies and they taste amazing. Perfect for coffee with the girls!
