Ok. After all this hearty and meaty posts I thought it was time for something sweet again:
Chocolate Chip Cookies!
German cookies are usually hard and rather crispy.
I always preferred the soft and chunky American cookie version and kept searching for the perfect recipe.
And here it is (approved by several Northern Americans)!

What you need:

240g all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
150g margarine (butter makes cookies crispy!)
115g white sugar
115g firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
300g dark chocolate chunks, or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 180°C.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Set aside.
In a second bowl, cream the margarine with white and brown sugar until smooth for about 2-3 minutes. 
Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
Add the flour mixture and beat thoroughly.
Stir in the chocolate chunks/chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking paper covered cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown.
Cool the cookies for a few minutes before removing them from the sheets.
Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!
