Chocolate-chip cookies

Cookies are my favourite food gifts, wrapped in a paper bag and tied with a ribbon, they will surely make someone’s special day better. Meet my mini-cake cookies,  thin & crispy on the outside, filled with tasty bits of  dark chocolate and most importantly, extremely easy-to-make. If chocolate is not your thing, you can experiment with a whole world of different flavours. Roasted nuts and dried fruit will definitely make a nice twist.

Makes about 25-30 cookies

We would need:

  • 250 g of butter, diced
  • 1 cup of golden caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 and ½ cups of flour
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder
  • a pinch of  fine sea salt
  • 150 g of quality chocolate (milk or dark)



  1. Beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add in the eggs one at a time and stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Sift in the flour, add a baking powder and a pinch of salt. Stir well.
  4. Lastly, roughly chop and stir in the chocolate.
  5. Ready mixture place onto a food film and roll it into a cylinder shape. Put the dough into a freezer for about 15 min.
  6. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark  4/ 350°F/ 180°C.
  7. Cut the frozen mixture in 1 cm wide bits and place them onto tray covered with non-stick baking paper. Allow considerate space between cookies.
  8. Bake for 12-15 min, or until golden brown.
  9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and be ready for superb treat!

Bon app!

With love,
