MY Chocolate Chip Cookies so Gerroff – still warm too, mmmmm…..

I am an oddball, so I’ve been told, because I’m really not that fussed about chocolate (shock!). Listen up all those with kind hearts who have, over the years, bought me boxes of luxury chocolates. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but a buncha beautiful flowers (but not yellow ones, ‘k), make my heart sing that bit louder.

However. There is an exception to my little oddball-thing; chocolate chip cookies, more specifically; warm, homemade chocolate chip cookies. Nom nom nom. I have even been known to eat half (ok, all!) of the uncooked cookie dough because I just. can’t. stop. myself.

I have spent many a happy hour or two trying out different recipes and here, for you, is my perfect-so-far recipe for chocolate chip cookies…..

100g butter or margarine (my personal choice is salted butter)

60g soft brown sugar

1 beaten medium egg (free range if you please)

150g flour

half a teaspoon of baking powder

100g chocolate chips (plain is my choice but milk or white, it’s up to you)

dribble of vanilla extract

I’m blessed with a rather attractive food mixer and it does the whole job but the baking. My method is to cream the butter and sugar then add the beaten egg then the flour, baking powder, vanilla and lastly the choc chips. Takes about 5 mins max on a low speed.

Then put cookie-sized blobs of the dough onto your greased baking sheet (or sheet with parchment) and bake at 180C/gas mark 4 for about 10 minutes and voila.

Best devoured warm. Oh yes. Mmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm… pass me a glass of ice cold milk please.

I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
