Choc chip cookies

    17 min

    Scrummy chewy cookies and very easy to make. One of my children's favourites and can easily change from choc chip to fruit or nut.

    Makes: 30 cookies

    • 280g (10 oz) self raising flour
    • 280g (10 oz) caster or soft brown sugar (or half and half)
    • 140g (5 oz) soft margarine or butter
    • 1 egg
    • 1 splash vanilla extract
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 175g (6 oz) chocolate chips (or fruit or nuts)

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:17min 

    1. Mix together flour, sugar and butter together until like breadcrumbs.
    2. In a bowl beat together the egg, vanilla and honey then mix into the dry ingredients.
    3. When the dough has come together, add in the choc chips or whatever main flavour you want to use. Note if you are using something like stem ginger don't add much of the syrup as the dough will be too wet.
    4. Divide into balls the size of cherry tomatoes and put on a lined baking tray. Approximately 6 to 8 on a tray as they do spread out when cooking.
    5. Bake at 160 to 170 C / Gas 3 for about 12 minutes maximum for first batch and about 10 minutes for subsequent.


    You may not think that just one egg will bind this together but it does, you don't need to add any extra liquid.

    Other ideas

    I have made this using gluten free flour and it works pretty well, the cookies don't spread as much but they are just as delicious.

    I'm interested to see how way off your cooking times are Sally. Mine are very soft when they come out of oven, I have to leave them on tray for few mins to harden but then they're lovely and chewy, not crispy, which I prefer.  -  03 Aug 2013


    These are totally divine! I found the cooking times way off but apart from that these cookies look gorgeous and taste just as good. I made them with milk, plain and white chocolate chunks  -  16 May 2013


    This recipe is the best yet, I omitted the honey and added bit water instead. Turned out gorgeous. Thank you soooo much.  -  25 Sep 2012
