Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wrote about a charity bake I did recently in my previous blog post, where I was tasked with making about 70 jars of cornflake cookies and chocolate chip cookies.

Here’s the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies!



200 g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp cocoa powder

150 g butter

120 g castor sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

60 g mini chocolate chips



Preheat oven to 180C.

Sieve flour with baking powder and cocoa powder.

Cream butter with sugar till light and fluffy.

Add egg and vanilla extract and continue to whisk for 2 minutes.

Fold in flour, add in the chocolate chips. Mix well to form a sticky dough.

Shape cookies or use a 3 cm scoop to form cookies. Place on a cookie tray and bake for 20 minutes.

This dough gives about 50 cookies each about 3.5 cm when baked.



I used French butter to give a light and crispy cookie. If using unsalted butter, add ¼ tsp of salt to the flour before sieving it.

Use real chocolate chips. There are some that are made from cocoa powder and some other flour which tastes a little plastic. Avoid these please.

Same for cocoa powder – use the real stuff. You can add 2 tbsp of cocoa if you want the cookies to be more chocolatey! Please use good ingredients for the best cookies. It is better to make a small batch of the best tasting cookies rather than lots of inferior tasting cookies.
