BM #97 Week 3 Day 3 - 

These chocolate chip cookies have a dominant nutmeg and cinnamon flavors which are my little one's favorite. So these are perfect when driving long distances as well.

When we plan our road trips, the kids decide what food they would love to have. They say food is half the fun while on the road. Apart from all the junk food they get from the fast food joints on the way, they love to carry some from home.

I have posted Pasta Sandwich and Minapa Rotte the past two days which are kid approved and the third one had to be these cookies. :)

Ingredients - 

Maida / All purpose flour 3/4 cup
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Salt pinch
Nutmeg Powder 1/4 tsp
Cinnamon Powder 1/4 tsp
Butter 1/4 cup (Unsalted at room temperature)
Sugar little less than 1/2 cup (I used powdered Raw sugar)
Vanilla extract 1/2 tsp (I didn't use)
Maple Syrup 1 tsp (The original recipe calls for Molasses)
Semi sweet chocolate chips 1/4 cup or more
Milk 2 tsp (if needed)

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking soda. cinnamon, nutmeg and mix well.

In a different bowl, beat the softened butter, sugar, vanilla, maple syrup and milk until fluffy.

To the wet ingredients, add the flour mixture and gently knead to a soft dough. Add milk a few drops at a time if needed.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips and mix so they are evenly spread in the dough.

If the dough is sticky, it is a good idea to chill it in the refrigerator for about 30 min or so. [I didn't have to]

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. 

Pinch small lime sized portions of the dough, slightly flatten them and place on a parchment lined baking tray. Continue with the rest of the dough placing them a few inches apart.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the edges are brown. [I baked them for 13 minutes]

Remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack before devouring them.
