Mum let us (M&L) use the kitchen again. We are going to make chocolate Rolo cookies.
Here’s what we need …
8 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
2 egg yokes
2 tablespoons milk
9 oz plain flour
1 oz coco powder
3 packets of Rolos (which gives you some left over … to test, just to make sure they’re okay)
We weighed the butter to the right amount and put it in a big mixing bowl with caster sugar.
Now we needed to cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.We started it slowly and got faster.
Then we separated the egg yoke from the egg whites and put the yokes into a bowl.
We beat up the egg yokes a little bit with a fork.
L checked the recipe and we added the milk to the eggs yokes. Then we put them in the big mixing bowl and beat them all up together with the sugar and butter.
Then we sieved the flour and coco powder into the big mixing bowl. We did it without getting too messy.
We mixed everything together and scraped the sides of the bowl down. It turned into a sticky dough.
We used our hands to get the dough into round balls and placed them on the trays. We had to space them out.
Our hands got quite messy. It was so tempting to lick them but we didn’t.
Then we placed the rolos on top. Some of them we pushed down too far and they made a hole in the cookie and we said that we wouldn’t do that again.
We had to keep on looking at the recipe to see what to do. The recipe told us to put the cookies in the oven for 12 minutes (at 180 degrees C).
In the oven they spread out lots and stuck together. We cooled them for 5 minutes on the baking trays and then used a spatula to put them onto wire racks.
