In my quest to find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever, I found this delicious version on the Australian Cadbury website. It’s a really easy recipe with just the right amount of chewiness and firmness needed in a choc chip cookie. In fact, it was so good that even Alexis (who is NOT a biscuit fan) was caught with his paws in the cookie jar around tea time.
I haven’t adapted the recipe at all from the original, except to subsitute normal flour and baking powder (we never have self raising flour at home). Oh, and I also added in more chocolate chips (why not?)
Chocolate Chip Cookies
All you will need:
125g butter, softened
½ cup light brown sugar
⅓ cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups of all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
½ cup cocoa powder
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 – Preheat your oven to 160°C.
2 – Cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy.
3 – Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
4 – Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. While the mixer is going slowly add this to your wet batter.
5 – Finally mix in the chocolate chips. You should have a fairly stiff mixture.
6 – Roll little balls of the dough and place them onto a greased baking tray. Gently press each ball down with the back of a dessert spoon.
7 – Pop in the oven and bake for 13 minutes. Keep an eye on these lovelies as you don’t want them to burn. The chocolate batter is fairly dark & you may not notice them getting too brown.
8 – Cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy with a huge glass of ice cold milk.
