Chocolate Chip Cookies | Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Honestly, the best cookies I have EVER made.

Last night saw the return of the Great British Bake Off and has made me all excited to bake my sister's birthday cake at the weekend. However, in the mean time I thought it really was about time I put this recipe on my blog to share with my lovely readers.

The recipe actually comes from Nigella's 'Kitchen' book; which I have had for years and yet for some reason not made much out of. My sister told me these are, and I quote, "the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever have" so I wanted to test it out, obviously.

Well, she wasn't wrong. They have the perfect balance of crisp and chewy; and they aren't overally sweet like I find the supermarket ones are. They are just scrummy, and totally easy to make.

Inspired to bake after watching Great British Bake Off last night? Try these. You won't regret it!

Nigella's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 14-16

150g unsalted butter
125g soft light brown sugar
100g caster sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
300g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
1 packet of chocolate chips (I used chocolate chunks)


1. Preheat oven to 170c & line a baking tray with baking paper

2. Melt the butter, then put it to the side to cool down slightly

3. When the butter is slightly cooler, put both the white and brown sugars in a bowl, pour over the butter and beat together

4. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until the mixture is combined, light and creamy

5. Slowly mix in the flour and the bicarb and once blended stir in the chocolate chips

6. Refrain from eating raw cookie dough! It does taste good though.

7. Using an ice cream scoop, or a little 1/4 american cup measurer scoop out the cookie dough and drop the balls on the baking paper; make sure you keep the cookies about 8cm apart as they will spread in the oven. Nigella recommends baking in two batches.

8. Bake for 15-17 minutes.

Has the return of The Great British Bake Off inspired you to get baking?

  5. Oh, so cookies again, yeah? Nowadays you can find many cookie recipes through the web. It would be much better if you wrote about some innovative meal that you can eat 3 times in one day, and don’t get sick of it. Because too many times when you don’t want or don’t have much time to do this. This idea came to me when I was reading reviews on
