Ingredients

  • 225g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 300g (2 cups) plain flour (sifted)
  • 200g (1 cup) of butter melted
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 100g-200g chocolate bar or chocolate chips (if you want to make them as chocolate chip biscuits)

If you want to make extra chocolaty cookies we'd recommend using 200g of chocolate otherwise stick to 100g chocolate for a classic chocolate chip cookie

Method

  1. Add the sugar and melted butter in a bowl and mix together - a wooden spoon is fine, no need for a whisk.

  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips at this stage if you're making chocolate chip cookies.

  3. Mix together using your hand. Once you get a dough texture, add the egg and knead using your hand again.

  4. Spread some butter onto a baking tray. Take some of the dough, roll into ball then flatten a little. Keep them on the small side as they spread out during baking. Also, don't keep biscuits close to each other otherwise they will get stuck together.

  5. Place in the oven and bake at 160C, gas 3 for 10-20 mins. The bigger the cookies, the longer they'll take to cook. They're ready when the edges are a bit golden.

made these exactly as the recipe says, with plain flour and granulated sugar and they came out lovely! we made ours very thick though so took around 25 mins in the oven at 160degrees.

what flour is needed

Becci

We used caster sugar, and just used the same size cup throughout (although we ended up using about three cups of flour as when adding the egg the mixture went sticky...they were delicious!! However, we left the vanilla essence and baking powder out...as we didn't have any...still scrummy though! Also, we cooked these on 160 c, for about 15 minutes. Very easy!

Anne Bennett

What kind of sugar? I cup of granulated is 6oz but 1 cup of caster suger is 8oz, biscuits often use soft brown sugar - help!

Molly

The chocolate chips melted and I wasn't very pleased with it.

Debs

Always use this recipe for chocolate chip cookies always yummy

Savannah

Mine came out crunchy? are they supposed to?

Kelly Roxanne

Just made these with my kids.. Like someone else said I had to add more flour as it was very sticky, in the oven now but don't look like they're cooking that well. will have to see how they turn out xx

r they mini cookies or big ones

Catherine Staffy

I use extra find sugar and it works for me. You can grind granulated sugar in a mini multi mixer.

JC

Surprised, but this actually worked well! Changes I made were: I mixed the egg in with the butter and sugar, since I didn't want to knead with my hands; I put the vanilla in with the wet ingredients, as is logical; I used baking paper instead of greasing the baking sheet. Oh, and I made them with gluten-free flour. Tasty!

Jan

We baked at 170o C for 10 minutes (for 60 cookies .. so would take longer for bigger cookies) ... just when the sides started to brown/golden a little. We put loads of choc chips in so they were excessively yummy!

Jan

The recipe says plain ... so not self-raising etc.

Jayne

Made these biscuits and they were a great success in our family, much better than shop biscuits, thank you x

cookiemonster

Fantastic recipe, easy to do and fun for the kids. We cooked these on approx 170 degrees for 20 minutes (we made them quite fat) they do spread quite a lot but we expected it and so left lots of room around the cookies and used two trays. Made 22 cookies! Thanks..

Mini Khan

too much sugar ...but rest of the recipe is good
