Sunday afternoon is bake afternoon now in this house.  Got to send "the Darlings" to school with a little "advertising material".  Apparently they hand out the cookies (to their friends - and then tell them to check out Mum's blog site!!  Gotta love the little Darlings!!!)

Monday you send them with a cookie or two each, and then you sit back and wait for the requests - one of them will ask for 2 extra, the other for 3 - to give their friends!

Today they went armed with Choc on Choc Cookies and Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies.

Choc on Choc Cookies

Makes approx 24

185g unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups plain flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
150g milk choc chips
100g dark chocolate, melted

Preheat the oven to 180C and line 2 large cookie trays with baking paper.

Beat the butter and sugar with electric beaters until thick and pale.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and a pinch of salt into the butter mixture and beat slowly until well combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Using two spoons, place heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking trays, flatten slightly, then bake for 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Cool on trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool completely.

Once cool place all the cookies closely  together on a sheet of foil and drizzle the melted dark chocolate over the top of the cookies.

Oatmeal and Rasin Cookies

Makes approx 24

150g unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 cup plain flour
200g rolled oats
1 cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 180C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper (you can re-use the baking paper from the last batch of cookies if you like!!)

Beat the butter and sugar in a na electric mixer until it is thick and pale.  Add the vanilla and egg, and beat until well combined.  Stir in the oats and the raisins.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on the cookie tray.  Flatten slightly with a fork that has been dipped in flour.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.

Cool on the trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Hopefully that will keep them going for the week!!

I think I am in for a treat tonight - I came home this afternoon to find "Precious Zumbo" concocting a V5!!  It's looking good - will show you all after it is finished.
