Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was absolutely freezing yesterday, and my brother and his friend were craving cookies.

I decided to bake them a batch of my very own chewy chocolate chip cookies.

There is nothing worse than a crispy cookie, unless its a tuile or waffle cone,  it is a crime to serve crispy chocolate chip cookies.

Or cookies with raisins that look deceptively like chocolate.
Anyway, these cookies disappeared as soon as I turned the camera off 🙂

Serves: 12

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


©       125g milk chocolate

©       135g plain flour

©       100g butter

©       1 beaten egg

©       1 tsp. vanilla

©       ½ tsp. baking powder

©       110g icing sugar

©       Sprinkle cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 170C.
  2. Cream the butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, whip in egg and vanilla.
  4. Sift baking powder , cinnamon and plain flour over the mixture, then stir till combined.
  5. Roughly break the chocolate (chopping is a good technique to achieve a range of chocolate chip sizes – or opt for chocolate chips), then fold into the cookie batter.
  6. Line a baking tray with baking paper, then place 12 spoonfulls of cookie batter evenly spaced apart (they spread when baked) and bake for 11 minutes (They will appear to be undercooked, leave to cool and they will become chewy).
  7. Once cooled, serve as they are or drizzle with a little chocolate ganache for a twist!
