Chewy choc chip cookies

These biscuits (cookies for you north Americans) are just right with a coffee for Mothers day.

And they are even better when your daughter makes them for you!


2 cups plain (all purpose) flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

170 g butter, melted

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 cups milk chocolate chips

1 Mum who loves biscuits


Preheat the oven to 165 °C (325 °F).

Sift together the flour, baking soda; set aside.

Cream the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk.

Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll dough into course balls about 3 cm diameter and place on baking paper on tray about 8 cm apart. Squish the balls gently to flatten. Don’t squish them to much or else you’ll have to eat them uncooked, or if you’ve already had enough cookie dough, you’ll have to reroll them and re squish them a bit more gently.

Repeat until the tray is covered. Check the biscuits are not too close together and rearrange so they are at least 6 cm apart. Eat a bit more dough.

Put the trays in the oven and forget to put the timer on. Go and do something more important like check Pinterest for new images of One Direction. Make sure you have a Mum close by that loves biscuits and doesn’t want them to burn. She’ll check them after about 12 minutes and take them out of the oven. They’ll have lightly browned edges but still be soft.

Let your Mum eat at least one while they are still warm. Save the rest for Mother’s Day.

Should make at least 12, and might make up to 20 if you don’t eat any dough before you put them in the oven. We’ll have to make them again to confirm this…
