Chocolate Chip Cookies

1I love chocolate chip cookies, but it’s pretty difficult to find some store bought ones that are perfect. I hate it when it tastes of margarine or isn’t crispy enough. Seeing as they don’t stock FOX biscuits in SA anymore (their choc chip is the best), I decided to try and recreate them. I was slightly disappointed in Woolworths’ ‘Chocolate chips’ (as they clearly took the name a bit literally), but they were still satisfactory. I just prefer larger chunks of chocolate, so next time I’ll hunt down the real thing.

3Ingredients:

  • 1 1/8 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 g butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (dark & milk)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180*C and prepare a baking sheet with baking paper and Spray & Cook.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract. Add the egg and mix it in.
  4. Combine the flour,choc chips and butter mixture in an electric mixer or rub it in.
  5. Once it resembles wet sea sand, start compressing it into a ball.
  6. Divide into equal sized balls and press flat in the palm of you hands and arrange on baking tray.
  7. Bake for about 15 min or until golden brown before letting cool on a wire rack.
