Chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies




  • 150g butter
  • 1/2 cup castor sugar
  • 1/2 brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 13/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper and set aside.

In a bowl, cream the butter, castor sugar and brown sugar until fluffy.

Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

Stir in the flour a little at a time. Stir in chocolate chips.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on the baking tray evenly spaced apart to allow for the mix to spread.

Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden. Leave on the tray for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  • These are perfect to make ahead and freeze for Christmas to give as gifts. I just increase the cooking time when cooking frozen cookie dough by 3-5 minutes.
