Easy Choc Chip Cookies

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.

Gavin’s Cookies


  • 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

Gavin’s Cookies


  • 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.

My Notes

  • 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.
