Never-fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been making these cookies for 10 years and they have never failed me. They’re so good in fact that I’ve never once strayed from this recipe – they have the perfect chewy texture and a rich, full flavour. Try and stop at one!


Ingredients (makes approx. 48)
125g unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ cups brown sugar, tightly packed
4 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 egg
1 ½ cups plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 180°C (or 160°C fan-forced).

Place butter & sugar in a bowl & beat until light & creamy. Add vanilla & egg & stir to combine.

Stir in sifted flour & baking powder until just combined. Fold through chocolate chips.

Place teaspoonfuls of cookie mix on a baking tray lined with baking paper, allowing room for spreading.

Bake for 10-15mins or until pale gold, but still soft. Allow to cool on tray for 5 minutes before moving onto a wire rack.

Try not to eat them all at once! I believe that they will last up to a fortnight in an airtight container (although they’ve never lasted long enough for me to test this). Enjoy!
