Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This was a favourite with my son when he was in primary school. I would make a batch every Sunday so that I could pack a couple in his lunchbox or recess.


All-purpose flour 1 1/4 cup

White sugar 1/2 cup

Brown sugar 3/4 cup

Egg 1

Baking soda 1/2 tsp

Salt 1 tsp

Unsalted butter 1/2 cup, melted

Chocolate chips 1/2 cup

Dark chocolate 1 cup, roughly chopped


Sift the flour, baking soda and salt.

Mix the sugars and butter in a bowl.

Add the egg and beat with a electric whisk till the mixture is a light brown and fluffy.

Fold in the flour and both kinds of chocolate.

Leave the dough in the refrigerator for 45 minutes.

Scoop out small balls of the dough and arrange on a greased tray. Leave enough space for the dough to spread.

Bake in a 180 degree C oven for 12-15 minutes. Check after 10 minutes and take the cookies out when they turn a light brown.

Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container when completely cool.
