    • 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 or chocolate chips


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

    • 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.

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

    • 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.

    • 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.
