Chocolate chip cookies recipe
These cookies are a simple tasty combination of milk and dark chocolate chips.They contain all the rich ingredients that good chocolate chip cookies really need. I like to make large batches of these and roll them into balls to freeze. That way I can pull a dozen out to bake as gifts.
- 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.
