My daughter Emma gave me this recipe which she said is foolproof – I haven’t tried it yet.

Choc Chip Cookies

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: many
  • Difficulty: easy


  • 125g butter, softened
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 200g chocolate chips or whatever filling you want!


  1. Oven to 180°C
  2. Cream butter and sugars, once creamed, combine in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Sift in the flour and salt although I only use a tiny pinch, then the chocolate chips or whatever you’re using.
  4. Empty the mix onto a strip of cling film as it can be a bit wet and fold it over then roll it to try and form a fat big sausage then put in fridge for a bit till its firm.
  5. For small harder biscuits
  6. Roll into walnut size balls, about (20grams per biscuit) and flatten a little with your hand bake for about 10-12 mins? or for big chewy cookies make big balls (40grams) and flatten a bit again and bake for 12ish mins. Bake on greaseproof so they don’t stick. And leave to cool fully before removing from tray.
