Chocolate Chip Cookies; The Perfect Treat For Santa

Chocolate chip cookies….the soft chewy ones.  The ones that work out quite expensive if you want to buy them but are so easy to make at home.
Course Snack


  • 125 g softened unsalted butter 
  • 100 g light brown soft sugar 
  • 125 g caster sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 225 g self raising flour 
  • 200 g chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 180 C.   
  • Cream butter and sugars      
  •  Beat the egg and add it in to the sugar/butter mix and beat together.       
  • Sift the flour and add to the mixture, mixing well.       
  • Now add the chocolate drops.     
  • Break off small amounts and roll in to a ball shape and place on a lined baking tray some distance apart as the cookies will ‘spread’ when cooked. Then push down flat (clean hands are fine!)       
  • Place in the oven for 7 minutes.  Do not wander off as they cook quickly and if you cook them only a minute more they are hard and dry.       
  • When cooked press the tops of the cookies down with a spatula, remove from the grease proof whilst still warm (they stick to the paper when cool) and allow to cool on a wire rack.  
  • Serve with an ice cold glass of milk before going straight to sleep, remembering to keep a couple of the chocolate chip cookies to leave for Santa!
