Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 225g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 300g (2 cups) plain flour (sifted)
  • 200g (1 cup) of butter melted
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 100g-200g chocolate bar or chocolate chips (if you want to make them as chocolate chip biscuits)

 

 

Method

  • Add the sugar and melted butter in a bowl and mix together – a wooden spoon is fine, no need for a whisk.

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips at this stage if you’re making chocolate chip cookies.

  • Mix together using your hand. Once you get a dough texture, add the egg and knead using your hand again.

  • Spread some butter onto a baking tray. Take some of the dough, roll into ball then flatten a little. Keep them on the small side as they spread out during baking. Also, don’t keep biscuits close to each other otherwise they will get stuck together.

  • Place in the oven and bake at 160C, gas 3 for 10-20 mins. The bigger the cookies, the longer they’ll take to cook. They’re ready when the edges are a bit golden.
