I have had no oven for over a week and was starting to have serious withdrawal symptoms! So this afternoon to celebrate having the beast back up and running I whipped up these super easy and always popular chocolate chip cookies. This is a great recipe as the most exotic ingredient is the chocolate, meaning they are a great stand by recipe to have up your sleeve. This is also a great recipe to get the kids to make as there is very little that can go wrong!
125g butter, softened
1¼ cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups flour
½ tsp baking powder
chocolate chips (as many or as little as you like)
Cream the butter and sugar together then add the egg and vanilla extract. With a wooden spoon mix in the flour, baking powder and then finally the chocolate chips.
Roll tablespoonfuls into balls and space out on a lined baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes at 180°C.
