These chocolate chip cookies are not only delicious, but the recipe is also easy enough to make with the kids. While they will be popular snacks at parties, they will make tasty gifts for loved ones too. Just present them in a pretty box or dish, or in a cello bag tied with a pretty ribbon.


Makes about 16 large cookies

  • 1 cup or 140g of plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup or 55g of butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup or 115g of dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup or 100g of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tea spoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips or 150g of chocolate broken into small chunks


  • Preheat the oven at 180ºC, 350ºF, Gas Mark 4. Line two or three baking sheets with foil (I’m not sure why but the cookies seem to stick to even non stick surfaces – however they come off very easily if the trays are lined with foil)
  • Combine the flower, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl and stir until blended
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until you have a smooth mixture
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the mixture and mix well
  • Add the flour mixture , when blended in, add the chocolate cookies and stir well
  • Drop the cookie dough in small mounts onto the baking trays (about 1.5″ appart)
  • Bake in the oven for 12 to 14 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and slide a spatula under each cookie and transfer to a wire rack to cool
  • The cookies will keep in an airtight container for a week (if you don’t eat them before!)


  • Replace the chocolate chips with sultanas or raisins
  • Make double chocolate chips cookies – replace 25 g of flour with 25g of cocoa powder
  • Use a mixture of white, milk and dark chocolate chips
