Make easy chocolate chip cookies in 15 minutes

Home baked chocolate chip cookie can be a luxurious treat. They are super easy to make, store well and tastes much better than packaged ones. Eat alone or dunk in milk, you gotta try both. Its important to use good quality chocolate chips. I have used Hershey's semi sweet variety. Give this super easy recipe of chocolate chip cookies a try.


This recipe has been adopted from Jaqueline Bellefontaine an extremely visually appealing chocolate book for chocolate lovers.

Ingredients:
Butter 1/2 cup
Light brown sugar 1/2 cup
Super fine sugar 1/4 cup
Egg 1
Baking powder 1 tsp
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Flour 1 1/2 cup
Semi sweet chocolate chips 3/4 cup


Method:
  • Beat butter and sugars with hand whisker or electric beater.
  • Add in egg and vanilla, continue beating.
  • Sift in flour and baking powder. Mix until a soft dough is formed.
  • Add in chocolate chips.
  • Make small balls. If mixture is very soft, simply drop in tea spoon full on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased baking tray.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at gas mark 5 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

  5. Hey Nadia!

    Can we use only fine white sugar instead of using brown sugar? If yes, then what should be the total quantity of sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  6. hi canya, sorry for late reply, yes u can all white in same proportion, just a little less (minus 2 tbsp e.g)

  7. Hey Nadia!

    I tried these cookies yesterday and they turned out awesome! Really good... thanks for sharing such nice recipes with us.

    I want to add one thing. If its possible for you, please also add the baking time and temperature in centigrades. Actually, I have an electric oven with just the temperature knobs in it so I'm not sure how to convert the gas mark into that... The cookies I baked at 180C for 15-20 minutes and it was just the right temperature!

    Thanks once again. Happy baking! :)

  9. This really is the best recipe ever. this is the exact same one i always use (on my blog anickh.blogspot.com) except i use crisco not butter and i bake at 350 for 9 min. the flour/butter/sugar ratio is absolutely perfect for making big fat chewy cookies.

  10. Great site, Nadia! I just discovered your blog few days ago. I tried two of your recipes, the apple crisp and the veggie pot pie with chicken. It turned out great, especially my kids loved it. I will definitely try rest of your recipes and let you know.

      Delete
    2. I can answer that question. Do not use olive spread. It will change the taste of your cookie and not in a good way.

  27. Hi - My little brother and I tried this recipe, only we used margarine and since we didn't have chocolate chips we used raisins and coconut, it worked great!

    ReplyDelete
  28. For me, it's better if you use aluminum foil instead of parchment paper. But when you use aluminum foil, be sure to grease the shiny side.

    1. oven too hot, try adjusting your oven temp by an oven thermometer and adjusting the rack position and rotating the tray half way through baking

  45. Hi Nadia,
    This is a delicious cookie. The only change I made was using milk chocolate chips and only about a 1/3 cup as that is all i had. Not very sweet but that's how I like it. Thank you!
