Fantasy Veggie Dinner Guest - WINSTON SMITH


Winston Smith can hardly be thought of as a hero but in 1984 he struggles to find and retain his originality in a world of bureaucracy.
Chocolate is rationed and the amount allocated keeps diminishing, despite the Party’s reassurance.
I think he would love to indulge in these.


DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Makes about 12

50g butter
50g granulated sugar
40g light brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 free range egg
125g plain flour
¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp salt
200g plain chocolate drops
100g white chocolate

NB Don't worry about the ratio of chocolate to biscuit mix - it is correct! 

Heat oven to 180C/ Gas4.
Cream the butter with the sugars and the vanilla extract.
Add the egg, flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix well.
Break the white chocolate into chunks and add to the mixture with the chocolate drops.
Make sure everything is well-mixed.
Put spoonfuls of the mixture, spaced well apart on greased baking trays.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly brown and still soft in the centre.
Leave to cool slightly for a couple of minutes. Then, place on wire rack to cool fully.
