THE EASIEST HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Prep time: 30 min
1 cup sugar
1 cup salted butter or margarine (melted)
2 cups flour (sifted)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 TopLay egg
150 – 200 g chocolate (chopped)
Preheat the oven to 160°C. Add the sugar, vanilla and melted butter to a bowl and mix. A wooden spoon is fine, no need for a whisk.
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture. Once combined, add the chocolate chips.
Once the mixture starts to form a dough, add the egg. Gently knead the dough with your hands to ensure that all the ingredients are well combined. If your dough feels too wet, add a little flour.
Roll your dough into balls and flatten them slightly on a greased baking tray. Make sure to spread them out as they spread during baking.
Bake the cookies for 15-20min at 160°C. The bigger the cookies, the longer they’ll take to bake. They are ready when the edges are slightly golden.
Allow the cookies to cool and firm up on the tray for 5-10min before moving them to a cooling rack.
