Who doesn’t love a delicious chocolate chip cookie? With many recipes out there, it can be hard to choose which one would be the best when it comes to flavour and texture. Luckily, we have taken the guess work out of  what recipe you should go for and have provided our very own “Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe”. What you will find is a cookie that’s beautifully textured on the outside, and soft and gooey on the inside. Yummy! 

 

 

Ingredients

for 12 cookies

  • ½ cup granulated sugar – 100 g
  • ¾ cup brown sugar – 165 g
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, (melted) – 115 g
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour 155 g
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 110g of milk chocolate chips
  • 110g of dark chocolate chips

Instructions

 

Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

 

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars, salt, and butter until it forms a paste, with no lumps.
  2. Whisk in the egg and vanilla, whisking until light ribbons fall off the whisk and remain for a short while before falling back into the mixture.
  3. Sift in the flour and baking soda, then fold the mixture with a spatula
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips, then chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. The longer the dough rests, the tastier its flavor will be.
  5. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  6. Scoop the dough onto the sheet of baking paper, leaving some space between each cookie so that the cookies can spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges have started to brown slightly.
  8. Leave out to cool before serving.
  9. Enjoy!

I know that when it comes to baking it can be quite intimidating, and with a massive range of Piping Tips out there on the market, I wanna make sure you are as equipped as possible for your next bake. We’re going to be covering how to use the Top 4 Piping Bag Tips and what you can decorate with them.

 

 

how to use the Top 4 Piping Bag Tips

TOP 4 PIPING BAG TIPS

  • Open Star
  • Closed Star
  • Round Tip
  • French Star

Let’s take a closer look into some of these.

 

OPEN STAR PIPING TIP

Open star tips are ideal for rosettes (flower like shapes), exterior borders around the outskirts of cupcakes and cakes. They are great for creating swirls of icing, stars, drop flowers The Wilton 1M piping tip is extremely popular when it comes to piping cupcakes.

Open Star Piping Tip

CLOSED STAR PIPING TIP

The closed star tip is a tighter and more deeply grooved version of the Open Star piping tip. It’s also known as a drop flower tip because as the name suggests, you can pipe beautifully shaped flowers directly onto cupcakes, cakes and desserts.

Closed Star Piping Tip

FRENCH STAR PIPING TIP 

French Star Piping Tip is commonly used for creating swirl designs for cakes & cupcakes. These are made from stainless steel meaning they will not rust or bend out of shape making it very long lasting.

French Piping Tip

ROUND PIPING TIP

The round tip gives a smooth, classic finish to your piping design that I personally believe works best with buttercream. It’s also great for filling in gaps between cake layers. By using different sizes of the Round Tip it can turn your icing into anything from loose waves to thick swirls, which makes your creations a lot more exciting.

Round Piping Tip

 

 

Basic Sizes:

 

I recommend getting a 32 piece kit to give you more value for money, included are piping bags as well to get you started. You can find them on Amazon here 32 Pack Piping Tips

 

 

How to clean your Piping Tips

To clean your tips, run them under warm water and remove as much icing as possible. Then soak the tips in hot, soapy water. Hot water  will help eliminate a good amount of the greasiness left behind from the butter in your frosting.

Then give them a thorough wipe over, with the smaller tips you might need to use a toothpick to get any small remaining icing from the teeth.

 

 

 

Now that you have a better understanding of Piping Tips, it’s time to get out there and practice, practice, practice. Check out a few of these videos to help get you started:

Your probably wondering what Qoin is? and what benefits that has to yourself as a Consumer/Business?

 

What is Qoin?

Qoin is an Australia owned Cryptocurrency registered with ASICS that launched in January 2020 with a fully functional blockchain & wallet. Qoin is a front facing digital currency that offers merchants the opportunity to join the Qoin community & accept new customers who pay using Qoin. Merchants/Consumers then have the opportunity to hold the Qoin for potential future growth or spend Qoin with other participating merchants.

The Qoin Blockchain has been developed using the Quorum Blockchain. Qoin offers merchant participation enabling merchants to generate additional sales in their business with customers using Qoin as payment. These additional sales come through a wallet based directory where users can search for business’ locally & nationally. Upcoming additions to the Qoin wallet will include an on-line shop where you can buy goods such as (clothing, electronics etc.).

Best thing is by leaving your money in your Qoin wallet you can literally watch it grow day by day. With the security of the stock value being backed by real businesses that are part of the community, you can be ensured that your investment is safe. Unlike Bitcoin stocks where they previously worked on a pump and dump scheme that can be extremely volatile, meaning prices can soar one day and drop the next, creating massive holes in your wallet. Qoin is a gradual climb, with each new consumer/merchant joining, this pushes the prices up. Meaning everyone wins.

Qoin offers an incentive to all users as well. If you refer a business/person (ABN Holder) and they sign up, you will receive Q100 for each sign up with no maximum limit. That converts to $344 AUD. That would be an easy living if you referred 3-4 people a week.

 

What’s the benefit to Merchants?

As a merchant, the benefits of signing up to Qoin’s Directory listing is the ability to expand your income stream by allowing an alternative way of accepting payment for your goods and services from consumers. As well as having the flexibility of writing off business income as an asset/investment, meaning you won’t need to pay GST/Tax on any products/services sold. Being that Qoin is in a blockchain wallet and is not recorded by any banks, you will have the freedom of controlling your own income and expenses, without any fees/charges.

Conclusion

This is an opportunity to take by the horns as all the major banks (ANZ, Westpac, NAB, Suncorp) are slowly converting to using cryptocurrency as a new age digital currency. While the price of Qoin is only currently at $3.46 at time of writing (it started at $0.15 in April this year, that’s a 2200% increase!!) meaning if you invested $1000 back in April you would have over $23,000 now!!!).

Qoin has a major potential to increase, as by the end of the year they are expanding from Australia & New Zealand to Singapore, Thailand and UK and by about March next year most of the world. Now If you look at Bitcoin it started in 2009 at $2.00 per Bitcoin, only 11 years later its now worth over $24,000 per Bitcoin. Being that a paperless society is being forced in, cryptocurrencies are going to be widely used in the not so distant future. So jump in now guys and lets pave a brighter, more financially free future for everyone.
