Chocolate Chip Cookies

These delicious chocolate chip cookies really helped set the scene today: Tropical Cyclone Luci hit my town earlier, so Cooper, my cat Simba and I spent the day cuddled up in bed. My favourite cat photography book by Rachael McKenna, my pink floral quilt that I purchased in the South of France, my two favourite buddies, a milky hot chocolate and these soft sweet chocolate chip cookies is where I happily spent the entire day.


  • 125g unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 1 1/4 cups tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 250g chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter and the sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla essence and egg and beat well.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt over the butter mixture and combine with a wooden spoon.
  5. Fold through the chocolate chips.
  6. Roll spoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined baking tray 3cm apart. Flatten the tops slightly with a fork (place a big chocolate chip on to decorate if you wish)
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes of until pale golden.
  8. Transfer to wire rack to cool (or just enjoy warm, straight out of the oven)
