Saturday Night Cushion Fever
Such is the wild and exciting life that I now lead, I spent my Saturday night making a new cushion. Rock and roll! It is rather nice though - a white linen base with variegated ribbon stripes in shades of gold, soft pink and purple.
Oh and I baked some chocolate chip cookies. Yum. The super easy recipe, should anyone want to attempt it, is below:
Makes about 18-20
75g butter (at room temperature)
175g muscovado sugar
splash of milk
150g self-raising flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
packet of chocolate chips (either milk, dark or white - or all three!)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/350G/Gas Mark 4.
Mix butter and sugar together until all lumps have gone. Stir in egg, flour and cocoa powder and mix til smooth. Add a splash of milk to bind it all together. Stir in the choc chips.
Spoon 20 or so mounds onto greased baking trays, leaving them room to spread during cooking.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Eat and enjoy!
