7. Set aside and let it proof for about 1 hr or till it rises till it fills up about 75% of the bread tin.

3. Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies
• ½ pound (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, melted and just warm to the touch
• ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
• ½ cup Granulated Sugar
• 1 Egg
• 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
• 1¾ cups All-purpose Flour

2. With a wooden spoon, mix the sugars together in a large bowl and add the melted butter. Stir vigorously for about a minute or more. Mix the egg and vanilla in the measuring cup you used for the sugar and add to the mixture. Stir until the mix gathers a glossy sheen, about one more minute.
3. Mix in the flour, milk powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.
4. Use a squeeze handle scoop to portion the dough (or lightly form into balls about the size of a golf ball) and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper about 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges but still soft in the middle. The cookies will fall as they cool. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians
Breast milk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
