Homemade cookies

Cookie Recipe

Easter has come and gone. In its wake lies a lot of chocolate. I didn’t think I could possibly manage to eat all of that chocolate, so I decided to do something creative with it.


  • 350g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g chocolate of any kind (dark is good) – smashed into small pieces



  1. Preheat the oven to 190C
  2. Mix  the flour and salt in one bowl
  3. In a glass bowl, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Put this bowl over a boiling saucepan and melt the butter and sugar together. Try not to just stop here and eat the sugar/ fat mixture: Yes – it’s tempting!
  4. Leave the butter/ sugar mixture to cool for a while.
  5. Beat the eggs into the butter/ sugar mixture.
  6. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate.
  7. Roll small marble sized balls of dough out in your hands and place at intervals on a tray with baking parchment.
  8. Bake in the oven for 8-11 minutes.
  9. Put on a rack to cool.
  10. Nom!
