Simple chocolate chunk cookies

I made these on my day off on Friday. I had a good day, despite the fact I had to jump start my car to get to the gym, then later discovered some lowlife had keyed my car. Not a good start to the day, but I had a fairly relaxing one otherwise! Just making jewellery and making these yummy cookies.

I used a very basic recipe - you can add any extra ingredients you fancy. I had some galaxy chocolate left over from easter, so I used that.

They didn't spread out as much as I thought they would, but they were still pretty good! Everyone seemed to enjoy them!

You will need...
110g butter, softened
60g Caster sugar
140g Plain flour
Plus any other goodies you want to add!

The Method

Preheat the oven at 170oC or gas mark 3.

Cream the butter in a bowl until it is soft. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Sift the flour into the mixture and add any extra ingredients you have. Use your hands to gather up the mixture until it forms a dough.

Make walnut sized balls and place them on a tray, slightly apart from each other. Flatten the balls with the back of a fork and bake them in the oven for around 15 mins until they are golden brown and slightly firm on top.

Place them onto a rack to cool...or if you can't wait then I'm sure they taste just as good warm!

Makes around 12 cookies.


  1. These look gorgeous! Would love to try them but I'm on a diet and I know if I made them I'd just end up eating them all! But the look so tasty all the same!
