Custom Order Onigiri + Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Seems like things are starting to take to a brighter side. :) I made this onigiri (rice ball) plush cell phone strap as requested by an Etsy customer. :P Hopefully, she's satisfied with it. Since she made my 50th sale, I've included a surprise gift for her. Don't cha just love freebies? :P

And today, I got another custom request from yet another Singapore girl. :P I'm so the Singapore fan already. :P

Well, this afternoon, I baked chocolate chip cookies. JUMBO chocolate chip cookies. T-T

1 ½ cups plain flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
1 ½ cups soft brown sugar
180g butter
150g dark chocolate
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 ½ cups chocolate chips

  1. Melt butter and chocolate over simmering water.
  2. Sift flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Add sugar.
  3. Make a well in the center and add eggs and butter mixture. Mix well.
  4. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter onto baking tray.
  5. Bake in preheated oven (170 ÂșC) for 20 minutes.

Well, this is the recipe from the book. I did a few alterations though.... 250g dark chocolate instead of 150g, 100g butter instead of 100g, additional 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder and 1 teaspoon baking powder. Was lazy to cut the block of chocolate, and there's only so much butter left. Adding the baking powder was a mistake because my mom said cookies normally don't require baking powder. T_T Maybe that's why they turned out to have soft centers. T-T Ah..... chewy cookies then....
