Traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe

These delicious cookies are the perfect treat to have at home or give to a friend. Once lockdown is over these will also be amazing to have on offer for guests with a cup of tea or coffee. They have very few ingredients and although they are a treat, they will definitely be healthier than most packaged, ready-made biscuits. You'll find the ingredients, method and some photos of the process below. 

These are also fun, quick and simple to make and perfect to practice your baking skills.



Ingredients 

  • 150g of butter - softened either in the microwave or in a bowl over a boiling pot
  • 200g chocolate chips / chunks.
  • 80g caster sugar 
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 225g plain flour 
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 
  • half a teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt if salted butter, 1tsp if unsalted butter.

Method 

  1. Line a baking tray with baking / greaseproof paper and preheat the oven to gas mark 5 or 190 degrees;
  2. mix together the butter and both sugars until creamy;
  3. add the vanilla extract and the egg and beat;
  4. sift in the flour and baking powder and continue to beat until smooth;
  5. add in the chocolate chips or chunks and stir them in;
  6. use a teaspoon to pick up some of the mixture and roll it into a ball between you hands, for traditional cookies, keep the ball small; and 
  7. bake for around 10 minutes and then leave to cool. 
There you go, simple chocolate chip cookies! These taste amazing whilst still warm and can also be heated up in the microwave and served with ice cream.
