Chocolate Chip Cookies

The girls and I made some chocolate chip cookies today (well, I made them while the girls ate the ingredients ;-D) and we followed this recipe from the Taste website. They were very easy to make and turned out wonderfully, even if they didn't have as many chocolate chips in them as they should have by the time they went in the oven!

Cooking Time

20 minutes


  • 150g softened butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate bits
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate bits
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick paper. Beat 150g softened butter, 1/2 cup caster sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and well combined. Beat in 1 egg.

  2. Stir in 1 3/4 cups plain flour in two batches. Stir in 1/2 cup dark choc bits and 1/2 cup milk choc bits until evenly distributed. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Press down slightly.
