Cookie of the Week

Cookies are always a great standby for dark evenings to have with your cup of tea. Every tea (and coffee) tastes so much better with a cookie or 2.

I love eating them warm, fresh from the oven - but cookies keep very well in an airtight tin (this is where the selection boxes come in handy). This cookie is soft in the middle and the chocolate chips give a nice bite.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 125g softened unsalted butter
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • few drops of vanilla essence
  • 175g selfraising flour
  • 100ml milk
  • 100g chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 160C. 

Cream together the butter and sugar. Make sure that the mixture is fluffy and pale in colour. 

Add the egg, yolk, vanilla, flour, milk and half amount of chocolate chips. Mix it all very well together. Using a spoon place drops of the dough on a baking sheet, divide the remaining chips between the cookies and bake until lightly golden and baked.
