Choc Chip Cookies

I tried this recipe from the Essentials magazine. I found that I had to add a little more self-raising flour for a better consistency – if you’ve made biscuits before, you will know what I mean. I also added less than 200g chocolate bits. I added them in until I found the quantity was just right for the dough.

What you need:

  • 130g butter
  • 80g castor sugar
  • 70ml Nestle evaporated milk
  • 150g self-rasing flour
  • 200g chocolate bits (I used less)

Preheat oven to 180ÂșC and grease a baking tray.
Cream butter, sugar and milk using an electric hand mixer, until light and creamy. Add flour and mix on low until the mixture comes together. At this point I added slightly more flour.
Stir in chocolate bits and then start rolling into cookies.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden.
Let it stand for 5 minutes after done, before transferring to a cooling rack.
