Chocolate chip cookies!

mmmmmmmmm…. recipe…

Today we celebrate the very first day of winter. I decided to celebrate it with cookies!

And I thought that I would share the recipe. Here goes:

I adapted this recipe from the Beautiful Biscuits one, and I think that I have perfected it. I’ve certainly used it enough times!


125g (4oz) butter

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar, lightly packed

1 medium-sized egg

1 3/4 cups of self-raising flour

125g (4oz) chocolate chips or pieces (I prefer to use about 175g of chopped dark chocolate, but I LOVE my chocolate!)

60g (2oz) Walnut/pecan pieces (optional)


1) Cream together butter and sugars.

2) Add lightly beaten egg.

3) Mix in flour thoroughly.

4) Add  chocolate pieces and nuts if you wish. Mix well.

5) Shape balls of dough to the size that you prefer. Remember, they rise a LOT, so heaped teaspoonfuls make good, medium-sized biscuits. Place on lightly greased oven trays. ALLOW ROOM FOR SPREADING!

6) Bake in moderate oven (I usually have mine on 180° C) for 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes about 45 small biscuits, or 22 larger ones. It all depends on size.
