My Favourite Cookie Recipe

My recipe blog posts always seem to go down a treat (if you'll pardon the pun) and since my boyfriend and I are currently making cookies I thought I'd share my favourite recipe with you. Please note that  unlike my other recipes this is not a family one, so I do not take credit for it! I am only spreading the deliciousness :)


  • 100g butter, softened
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 50g muscovado sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 150g self-raising flower
  • 100g plain chocolate chips
  1. Grease 3 baking trays and pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees.
  2. Beat the sugar and butter together until it is well blended.
  3. Add the vanilla extract to the egg and gradually mix into the butter and sugar mixture, beating well each time.
  4. Mix in the flour and then the chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon large teaspoons of mixture onto the baking trays and bake for 8-10 minutes, watching carefully as they burn easily! (note: these cookies spread loads so leave plenty of room between dollops)
  6. Allow them to cool and enjoy!
