Student Recipies: Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Hello everyone!

Today I had very little to do so I decided that I would bake some cookies to take down to my granddad’s this weekend. Here’s the recipe and some pictures! If you try this out let me know! 😀


100g (4oz) Butter/Margarine
100g (4oz) Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
175g (6oz) Plain Flour
175g (6oz) Chocolate Chips (Milk/Dark/White)


1. Grease two large baking trays using either butter or margarine (or you can like i have use baking parchment which saves on washing up later on ;] ) and turn the oven onto 150 oC

2. Mix the sugar and the butter/margarine into a bowl and beat until it is light and creamy. Here it helps if the butter is at room temperature as it mixes far easier into the sugar!

3. Break the egg into a small bowl and whisk, then into this stir in the vanilla essence. When mixed together add to the mixture in the larger bowl (the sugar and butter mix)

4. Add the flour and chocolate chips into the bowl and stir well, making a smooth mixture. I suggest adding the flour and chocolate chips in gradually, adding a little of each at a time then stirring as this stops there being pockets of flour in the mix :]

5. Spoon the mixture onto the greased baking trays and lightly press down on the mixture, depending on how thick or thin you want your cookies depends on how many you get from the mix, these amounts should make around 12 :]. Place in the oven for between 10-15 minutes until golden brown and soft in the middle.

6. Remove from the oven and lift the cookies from the tray using a fish slice or spatula and place on a wire rack to cool. When cool… ENJOY! :]
