FA chocolate chip cookiesi have bookmarked this for a long long time but there was this one “secret” ingredient in the recipe that stopped me from baking it ~ coffee oil that is.  some bloggers said you can find it in Sun Lik in Singapore but my last trip there was futile…. i finally found it in “I Love Cake” in Hong Kong and so…. (rubbing hands gleefully)  ლ(|||⌒εー|||)ლ

1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts,chopped finely (optional ~ i used toasted walnuts)

鸡蛋 1颗

Directions/做法

FA chocolate chip cookies

– This is the most important step, at least 2 hours before or the night before, beat the egg with the vanilla and the coffee oil to infuse. if you do this the night before, refrigerate it then bring it to room temperature before baking
关键步骤:制做曲奇两小时前将鸡蛋、香草精和咖啡油搅拌均匀以让香味儿渗入蛋液。也可选择在制做曲奇前一晚准备冷藏。制做曲奇前回温后使用

– Preheat oven to 160C
烤箱预热至 160摄氏度

– To the softened butter, beat in the sugar and the salt to combine. Beat in the egg and stir in the processed oats, ground almonds, optional chopped nuts and the chocolate chunks. Sift the flour and fold it in, this dough will not be too stiff but not too wet either
软化黄油拌入糖和盐。拌匀后加入蛋液。拌匀。加入燕麦、杏仁粉、剁碎坚果仁(如用)和巧克力豆。最后筛入面粉、翻拌均匀。不可过度搅拌。面团挺好使~不偏干或湿

– For small cookies, place half-tsp of the dough, spaced slightly apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes
如做小曲奇,在烤盘勺上半小匙面团、之间预留细缝。烤 9-10分钟

– For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes
大曲奇,用一大匙面团、烤 20-22分钟

– Cool completely and before storing in airtight container
烤熟后的曲待完全冷却后收入密封盒

FA chocolate chip cookies Personal notes/温馨小贴士:
– i used a 3cm (in diameter) ice-cream scoop to scoop the cookie dough, and yielded 93 4cm baked cookies
我用了直径 3厘米冰淇淋勺勺面团,做了 93颗 4厘米的曲奇

– i baked my cookies at 190 degrees C for 10 mins ~ this makes slightly crunchier cookies (vs chewy cookies) per our preference. As you can see, my cookies are browned all over (most books will ask you to remove cookies when the sides turn golden brown ~ which yields chewier cookies)
我用了 190摄氏度烤箱烤了 10分钟~做出来的曲奇比较脆(不是有嚼性那款)。如此做出的曲奇整片都上色、偏脆,和书本上教的(曲奇边缘变金黄色后即可取出~这种曲奇比较耐嚼)完全不同

– updated: I baked another batch on 8 March 2014 using a 3cm cookie scoop. Cookies baked for 27 mins at 160 degree C are very nice and crispy
更新贴士:2014年3.8 妇女节复做:用了 3厘米冰淇淋勺、曲奇用了低温 160摄氏度烤箱烤了 27分钟。非常香脆

    is there anything can be substitute the coffee oil?
    your cookies looked awesome!

      Hello, tks for coming by… can u find coffee paste? Otherwise, I guess just use coffee essence but it may not be as flavourful

  • Greenamy Tan (April 17, 2014)

    Hello again victoria,
    am planning to play with this recipe for this easter wkend. Need to ask you with regards to the \”1/4 cup oats & 1/4 cup ground almonds\”. Oats means the instant ones you make into a drink with hot water? Currently I have rolled organic oats that has to be boiled with water. And the ground almonds.. ok to use pre-packed chopped almond bits for baking?

    Hi! Your cookies look so amazing i\’m going to try making them. But one thing, since I\’m not living in singapore i don\’t have access to the sun lik coffee oil. Would coffee extract (like vanilla extract) work the same?
    Thanks!
    Meiyen

    • Victoria Bakes (July 23, 2014)

      hello Meiyen, it\’s going to be a slightly different unfortunately (i tried the extract version). Can you find coffee paste where you are? if not, then yes, settle for the extract. thanks for coming by

  • Meiyen (July 23, 2014)

    Ok, I found coffee emulsion on amazon but I\’m not sure of the consistency. Coffee oil is somewhat like a thick liquid (honey)? I want to stay true to the recipe as possible 🙂

    • Victoria Bakes (July 23, 2014)

      yes you are right meiyen.. but i think emulsion may render a better flavour compared to the extract… and remember to infuse the eggs overnight. good luck

  • Athirah (March 24, 2016)

    Should we flatten the dough before baking?

    • Victoria Bakes (March 24, 2016)

      hi Athirah, no need. use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, drop it onto baking pan and leave it as it is. it will spread a little bit during baking
