G1 made cookies during his well-being workshop at school. Since it was an easy recipe and the cookies were such a hit, I thought we should save it for future reference.
- 125 g soft butter
- 100 g light brown sugar
- 125 g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 225 g self-raising flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 200 g chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
- Cream butter and sugars.
- Add the egg and vanilla.
- Fold in flour, salt and chocolate chips.
- Line baking tray with grease-proof paper.
- Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls.
- Place the balls onto the tray and bake for 8 minutes to get chewy and soft cookies; 10 minutes for firmer cookies.
- If your pressed for time, chuck everything (except the choc chips) into an electric mixer and mix until well combined.
- Scoop the dough out with a mini ice cream scoop for each cookie.
- Instead of mixing the choc chips into the dough, squash a few choc chips onto the tops of each cookie. This allows you to get a more even ratio of choc chip to cookie dough.
