Sunday Comforts: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are one my favourite treats to make – they’re super easy, they taste amazing and they please everybody. Plus if you’re not a fan of chocolate you change it up for sultanas, or if you do you can add even more!

INGREDIENTS:

200g light brown sugar

125g butter (room temperature)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract (optional!)

225g self-raising flour

half a bar of milk chocolate (or as much as you desire!)

METHOD: Oven 180°C

  1. Start by creaming the butter and sugar together until it’s light and fluffy. I personally like using brown sugar because it gives a really warm and rich flavour. Feel free to use caster sugar instead if you prefer.
  2. Next mix in the egg and vanilla extract, then once mixed fold in the flour. You should end up with a nice and gooey dough.
  3. Now it’s time for chocolate – yay! I like breaking up a bar of chocolate because it gives the cookies a more rustic feel, plus biting into melted chocolate chunks is just heaven. Just break up the pieces (sometimes I cut them smaller with a kitchen knife) and add them to the dough.
  4. Once you’re done line two baking trays and place the dough in small golf-size balls. Be warned, they have a tendency to grow in the oven so leave plenty of space. Cook for 8-10 minutes if you prefer them to be gooey, if not 10-12 minutes will do fine.

I really hope you enjoy this recipe – they’re a firm favourite in my family! Let me know how you get on if you do make them, and as always feel free to ask if you have any questions 🙂
