I know you may think me contradictive for posting recipes when I clearly don't follow them. That's true, but I ADAPT them and change the quantities of ingredients to suit my need/taste/feeling. So please feel free to ADAPT the recipes I post... now run free and enjoy the blog.

Who loves a good choc chip cookie?

I do.

It's a nice edition to a steaming hot cup of something :)

To be honest with you, I only found this recipe today...but it certainly was a hit at home!

We like the crunchy editions of this humble cookie but as stated in the cooking notes, if you're a softy at heart and a lover of the chew, this recipe caters for you too.

Happy baking!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

(Adapted from Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies.)

Cooking Notes:
If you prefer chewy centred cookies then bake for 8 minutes, but on the other hand, if you like hard and crunchy cookies, bake for 15 minutes and let it rest in the hot oven for 20 minutes then take out to cool.
Adding a cup of toasted pecans or walnuts may not be a bad idea…


·         1 cup of softened butter

·         ¾ cup of brown sugar

·         Just under ¾ cup of caster sugar

·         I tsp of vanilla extract

·         2 lightly whisked eggs

·         3 ½ cups of plain flour

·         4 pinches of baking powder

·         1 pinch of salt
·         2 cups of chocolate chips

I just want to eat it.
1.       Prepare  2 trays with a sheet of baking paper on each.
2.       In a bowl, cream sugars and butter until smooth (It should look like dark peanut butter.)
3.     Add eggs and vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine flour, powder and salt.
4.       Pre-heat oven to 175°C (Once you are familiar with this recipe you can pre-heat oven as step 1.)
5.       Add it to the butter mixture and mix well.
6.       Knead in the choc chips.
7.       You can roll them in balls and flatten or you can plop the batter on as is on the trays.
8.       Bake for the time preferred (refer to cooking notes.)
9.      Cool and eat as a nice dipping feature for tea or coffee! (Or not!)
