~~Chocolate cookies~~

This is an all-time favourite among the people around me. It's nice and simple and you can even pre-make the dough and freeze them so you'd have fresh cookies any time.


110g Butter
100g Light brown sugar
40g Castor Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

140 g all purpose flour
30 g unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
A pinch of Salt
200g Chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 180 °C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using electric whisk, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.x
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract.
  5. Add the flour mix in stages, mixing until incorporated.
  6. Fold in the the chocolate chips.
  7. Using two spoons place about 1 1/2 tbsp of batter onto the baking sheet, leaving 2inch of a gap between them. Flatten each one slightly. (This is the stage where you can stuff them into freezer bags and into the freezer for later use.)
  8. Bake the cookies for about 14 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the baking time. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.
  9. Makes about 24 cookies.
