Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This cookie recipe is simple and quick to make but still packs a punch with flavour. I like to add giant chunks of chocolate to my cookies, but you can change that for any ingredient you like – perhaps white chocolate instead, or chopped nuts and dried fruit. 

This recipe featured in June‘s edition of The Blackmore Vale magazine.

  • 125g butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 300g chocolate (broken into chunks).
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 180fan/gas 5.
  • Step 2 Grease and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Step 3 In a bowl, beat together the butter, both sugars and the vanilla extract until light and fluffy (either with an electric mixer or a wooden spoon).
  • Step 4 Then beat in the egg until the mixture is smooth.
  • Step 5 Carefully stir in the flour and once combined, add in the chocolate.
  • Step 6 Using your hand, scoop out the mixture and place onto the tray in rough ball shaped blobs (about the size of the palm of your hand). I like to put six on each tray and space them out with lots of space between as they spread when they bake. You can make smaller cookies if you wish, just make the balls of mixture smaller.
  • Step 7 Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Check to make sure they are golden brown all over and cracked across the top. Cook for a couple of minutes more if still pale in the centre.
  • Step 8 Freshly baked cookies are amazing but do try and leave them to cool for 5 or so minutes before eating as they will still be very soft initially and this gives them time to harden a little.
