Somehow what is happening around is very disturbing. For many of us, Alhamduillah, the world is still safe enough for many of us to thrive and our children to grow. But there is a section among us who don't even know what would be their status the next moment. As the world expressed shock and mourned at the picture of the little boy who hit the shores of Turkey, only time can say what holds for the population in tatters. All we can do is to pray for them as much as we can and do what little we can do. I happened to read this article
which was so hitting... It can't be better expressed... A few days back, an Instagram feed showcased this ayaat... I have no words to say:
"What is (wrong) with you? Why do you not help each other?" (Surah As-Saaffat: 25)
While we keep our faith high in Him and trust Him in what is happening in the world, let me move on to today's recipe, which is an awesome bunch of cookies. I saw this recipe at the back of the Hershey's White Chip pack and instantly made them. The quantity I made disppeared in an hour's time. The kids kept coming in and picking them up from the time they were warm out of the oven, not giving it enough time to even cool down properly. I had a hard time saving up a few to be clicked. Now posting this recipe really makes me wonder, why don't I bake cookies often, especially when the kids just love them? Hmmm...
Hershey's White Chip Chocolate Cookies
Makes 2 dozen
113 gm butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup white chip (I used Hershey's)
Heat oven to 180 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar till creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat till combined. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, soda and salt into the beaten mixture and gently beat to incorporate. Fold in the white chips.
Drop spoonfuls or shape into cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. The cookies will be soft but will harden upon cooling. Cool slightly on the tray and then transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
Enjoy with a cup of milk and store remaining cookies (if they remain for too long!!!) in an airtight container.
