What better to cook than cookies............

Leah's friend came over yesterday, so we baked some cookies together. You are supposed to use chocolate chips for the recipe, but I used mixed fruit instead.

Here is the recipe.
4oz butter or margarine
2oz caster sugar
3oz soft brown sugar
8oz plain flour
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
4oz of choc chips (white and brown) I used mixed fruit instead
set oven for 180 degrees and grease 2 baking sheets
cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
add egg a bit at a time, along with the vanilla extract.
sift the flour and baking powder together over the mixture and stir in with a metal spoon. Stir in the fruit.
using 2 spoons, place the mixture on the baking sheets, wide enough apart to allow for spreading whilst cooking. makes 15 cookies.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden, moving around in the over after 10 minutes for even cooking if necessary.
Leave on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack for cooling.
