Recipe | Chocolate Chip Cookies

Milk chocolate chip cookies. Soft, chewy and delicious.

Choc Chip Cookies 3

Ingredients (makes 15 – 20 cookies)

  • 200 g dark muscovado sugar (you can use light, but I had dark in the cupboard)
  • 115 g butter/marg
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 200g milk chocolate, chopped into chunks (on reflection, I would add more – I wanted more chocolate… MORE!)

Of course you can use dark or plain chocolate – whatever you prefer!


  1. Line two baking trays with baking paper and pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg and mix together. Add the flour, baking powder and bicarb and stir until you have a dough. Mix in your chocolate chunks.
  3. Put small balls of the dough onto your baking trays (or larger if you want enormous cookies). The dough does flatten and spread during cooking – these before and after pictures will give you an idea…

Before… raw cookie dough.

After. On the cooling rack.

Bake for about 10 minutes then leave to cool on a cooling rack. Or scoff while still warm – that’s when I think they’re best!
