Chocolate Chip Cookies - Panasonic Steam Combination Microwave

Having had the Panasonic NN-CS894S Steam Combination Microwave for a few months now I've been busy trying out it's many functions.  I'm totally impressed with this oven; whether you are using it for steaming, as a convection oven, microwave, grill or a combination of these, or simply to defrost frozen food, this oven is fantastic.   When I made my Cheesy Topped Potatoes and Peppers I used the steam function to cook the potatoes followed by the conventional oven and grill.

When used it as a convectional oven as I did to make these cookies you can see it cooks evenly too.

In fact I'll go as far as to say it's pretty much faultless. When used in steam only mode it's true the oven walls do get wet, but all is needed is a quick wipe to get it dry again.  You can read my review to find out more about this oven and it's features.
I have made so many things in it including bread rolls to which I added a shoot of steam during cooking and they were lovely and soft on the inside and perfectly cooked.



Anyway I thought it was time to try one of the recipe in the book that came with the oven.  So since we'd ran out of biscuits (and I do like a biscuit with a nice cuppa), Chocolate Chip Cookies it was.

Of course you can cook on two shelves if you wish since the beauty of the oven not having a turntable enables you to do just that - so why didn't I do that?!  Simple reason even though I have more kitchen accessories and cooking equipment than you can shake a stick at; I don't have a baking tray that's small enough to fit on the wire shelf.
To cook on two shelves you need the supplied enamel tray seen here in my picture.  The second shelf is to have the supplied wire rack with a baking sheet on top which as I say, I don't have one small enough to fit.

Anyway, no big deal I just cooked in two batches.  Of course these cookies can be cooked in an ordinary oven.

Recipe taken from the Panasonic recipe book supplied with the oven.

Makes 12 Cookies
100g butter
100g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
175g plain flour

Method:
Preheat on Convection 170C with the wire in the upper shelf position.  Cream together the butter and sugar until pale, then beat in the egg.  Mix in the flour until well combined and add the chocolate chips.
Place walnut-sized spoonfuls of dough well apart on a greased baking tray (I like to use non-stick Bacofoil which means no washing up) and flatten with a fork.
Place one baking tray onto the wire shelf in the upper position and the enamel shelf in the lower position and cook for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Remove the cookies and allow to cool on a wire rack.
