Choc Chip Cookies

I had seen a lot of recipes around all the blogs for choc chip cookies recently which got me wanting to make my own! Choc chip cookies are my favourite type of cookie, as long as they have got heaps of chocolate in them, and these ones do. I am not one to usually put anything else besides chocolate in my cookies either, so if you want to add anything else then it's up to you.

The recipe says it makes 16 cookies, but I think I got about 19 and they were big chunky cookies too, so if you like your cookies smaller (so you can eat more) then it will make about double this.

I usually have all these ingredients lying around at home which is great to satisfy my cravings!

All the ingredients ready to go

Creaming the butter and sugar

Whisking the egg before mixing into the batter

Adding the dry ingredients

Adding the choc chips!

Put on a tray lined with baking paper

All brown and gooey!

Choc Chip Cookies

125g Unsalted butter
185g (1 Cup) Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Egg, Lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon Milk
215g (1 3/4 cups) plain flour
1 Teaspoon Baking powder
250g (1 1/2 cups) Dark Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a couple of trays with baking paper

2. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl using electric beaters. Mix in the vanilla and gradually add the egg beating well. Stir in the milk

3. Sift the baking powder and flour into a large bowl and then fold into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the dark choc chips.

4. Drop tablespoons onto a baking tray and bake in oven for about 15 minutes, or until turning brown. Cool on wire rack.

I love cookies on their own or mashed through some vanilla ice cream! yum!

Oh nice one girlfriend :) Choc Chip Cookies are wonderful, especially homemade ones. I haven't made them for ages (probably for fear I'd stand there and just eat until the entire batch was consumed); but I must say browsing around the blogosphere, with it being Cookie Week in the US I've been so motivated to make cookies too.

Is it strange that I've never thought to put choc chip cookies with ice cream? It makes perfect sense though!
