Do you have a favourite biscuit recipe? This is the favourite choc-chip recipe in our household. It’s made with mostly brown sugar, which I think makes all the difference!


I can’t tell you exactly where I got it from, because all I can remember is scribbling down the ingredients list whilst watching some daytime TV in year 12 when I was off sick, and made up the rest!



250g soft butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
375g chocolate chips*


Allow butter to come to room temperature
Add in the order above, mixing after you add each ingredient
Make balls the size of a heaped teaspoon, being careful not to flatten too much
Cook at 150 degC  for 15 mins fan-forced or 18minutes with a conventional oven.
Watch them carefully so you do not over-cook them. We like them thick and soft!


It makes about 3-4dozen, depending on how big you make them and how much cookie dough your family eats whilst you make them 🙂


We freeze them for lunches & snacks, and I love to eat them cold straight from the freezer (don’t judge me until you’ve tried them!) hehe


*You can use any type of choc chip, however I definitely prefer to make them with the good brands (Nestle or Cadbury). My preference with this dough is Milk or White chocolate chips (with macadamia nuts!), although I use dark chocolate chips occasionally.
