I MADE THESE to take with me to work today for a colleague's birthday. They're choc chip with added little bits of peppermint crisp. Yummmmmmmmmmy.

We're washed out, eating cookies & cake - they're going down well with the crew.

Here's the recipe:

125g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups SR flour
1/4 cup coconut
1/2 cup milk choc chips plus extras for tops

Makes approx 34

(Hmm, I just wrote that list from memory - don't know whether to be proud or scared!)

Here's how:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C fan forced. Grease two baking trays.
  2. Cream butter and sugar.
  3. Stir in beaten egg.
  4. Add vanilla essence, sifted flour, coconut and choc chips. Combine.
  5. Roll teaspoonfulls into balls and flatten slightly on trays. Add extra choc chips to tops.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Go to Spin class (optional).
Don't forget to add some crunched up Peppermint Crisps for this special version. I used two bars - they added a nice zingyness to the cookies.
And to take us out - some classic Cookie Monster. This clip was a favourite for my brother and I, back in the day. Children of the 80's, you know you want to!

If moon was cookie me think me would be
Happiest monster you ever see.
Me put on a space suit then up through the night
Me ride in a rocket to go take a bite.

Me take bite from here. Me take bite from there.
And pretty soon, me bite everywhere.
Me eat with both hands. No need fork or spoon.
Me chew it all up until there no moon.

If moon was cookie it wouldn't be fine
Because if me ate it then it wouldn't shine.
Me come to the window and look up at night
But no little moonbeams would give me their light.

So me not like to say it, but it clear to me
It lucky the moon is not a cookie.


  1. "It lucky the moon is not a cookie"
    So wise.

    The Cookie Monster and The Count taught me everything I need to know in the world.

  2. hahaha - I never realised that Cookie Monster was so illiterate.

    I thought you were going to post me "I gotta noo way to walk, WALK WALK" ... this is rather scary actually (typing as I watch).

    I always thought that mailman guy (who also plays the chef) has a very very spherical head.

    "oRR, you got bats in this place fella"
    "NOH. I don't have any friends."

    Conclusions: Count is on druuuuuuurgs.

    Thanks bro, that was great!! 1970's/80's sesame street is way better (much better theme song also).

  3. oh my god - i want to eat these nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  5. Couldn't agree with you more, 韋于倫成. (? 0_o)

    Keep up the great work! x
