Chocolate Chip Cookies- Kenyan Style!

Today is Boy Scouts day, it is the day we celebrate the birth of scouting. Some of us associate Boys Scouts with cookies because of the cookies they sell to raise funds for their organization. As for me, I've decided to commemorate this day by sharing another classic cookie favorite recipe - chocolate chip cookies.

We all love chocolate, so why not some chocolate chips in a cookie? Here's my recipe:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

 - 1 cup Sugar
 - 2 Eggs
 - 1/2 cup Butter
 - 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
 - 2 cups All-purpose Flour
 - 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
 - 1 teaspoon Salt
 - 10 oz./ 300gms Semi-sweet Chocolate chips or chunks


1.) Preheat oven to 350 °F/177 °C. Lightly grease and flour cookie sheet and set aside.
2.) In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.
3.)  Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add eggs one at a time and mix thoroughly, then add the vanilla.
4.) Stir in the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly. Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks with a wooden spoon.
5.) Roll the stiff dough into balls and press them onto cookie sheet. Space them about 2-inches apart on the sheet.
6.) Bake until golden brown but slightly soft in the center, about 10-13 minutes. Transfer hot cookies onto a cooling rack with a spatula to cool.
