    Makes: 30 cookies

    • 125g unsalted butter
    • 100g brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 225g self raising flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 200g chocolate chips

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:32min 

    1. Pre heat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Place butter and sugar in a large bowl, mix well. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again. Sieve in flour and salt and mix everything thoroughly together until you have a dough. Add the chocolate chips (or whatever you are using) mix together.
    3. Roll the mixture into balls (about 2cm by 2cm, or desired size) and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Try not to put the dough balls too close together and allow room for spreading.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 7 to 10 minutes or until blushing golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.


    Leave them out at room temperature for a few hours after baking for best results.


    Leave out the salt if you are using salted butter.


    You can replace the chocolate chips with M&M's®, Smarties®, Maltesers®, anything!

    These were very easy to make and looked lovely although every time I have eaten one I have had a strange taste in my mouth. Nobody else has complained so I assume it is my tastebuds. I am very sorry that I cannot rate these higher.  -  23 May 2017
