    Makes: 40 cookies

    • 110g butter
    • 100g margarine
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 250g plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • salt to taste
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 170g dark chocolate chips

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Cream together the butter, margarine, sugar and vanilla.
    3. Sieve together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Add to sugar mixture and mix well, being careful not to over mix.
    4. Drop heaped teaspoons of the dough onto ungreased baking trays. Flatten each one with a fork (dip fork into small bowl of water so that dough doesn't stick to fork). Do this once or twice, depending on the size of cookie and fork.
    5. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. After each tray is removed from oven, carefully place 5 or 6 chocolate chips on top of each cookie while they are still hot. When chocolate is glossy and soft, spread with knife.

    I think that these turned out great! I didn't modify the ingredients at all, but I did modify the process of making them. I flattened them with my hand and then used a round cookie cutter to shape each cookie. During the last 5 minutes of baking I carefully placed the chocolate chips on the cookies to ensure that they were melted so they would spread evenly. Doing it this way takes a little more time but I think the end result is worth it (as you can tell by the photo). I am going to try these in heart shapes and maybe use mint or orange extract instead of vanilla for Valentines day for my son's 2nd grade class.  -  20 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My children and I made it for our school's annual Heritage Day. It was so easy! My kids said it was one of the best cookies they have ever had.  -  09 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cookie was extremely easy to make and turned out wonderful. I found it easier to use your hands to scoop the dough versus using teaspoons. And because the dough was a little crumbly I added 1/4 cup water.  -  13 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
