Ingredients (makes 12 cookies)

  • ½ cup butter (115g), melted
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup choc chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the two sugars, salt, and butter until the mixture is creamy and pale.
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla, then add the flour and baking soda and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop enough dough to make each cookie then place them, well-spaced, onto the tray.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges have started to slightly brown. It won't look done, but it is, if you want a delicious chewy cookie.
  7. Cool completely before taking it off the trays. Enjoy!


Raw cookie dough is perfect for the freezer and so handy to have ready to go for impromptu guests. Make a double batch of these cookies, roll chilled dough into a long log, and slice or roll into individual balls. Allow 30 min for thawing on a lined baking tray. Once at room temperature, bake as per recipe.

  • We love making and baking choc chip cookies and thanks for sharing your recipe. Holiday time is a good time for cooking activities in the kitchen.


  • Yummm!
    I love cookies like this. I only half cook the pre made ones by aunty Kath’s.
    Nice and gooey is the best.


  • These would make fantastic snacks.


  • Yum how good are chewy biscuits?!


  • My all time favourite biscuits. And they always turn out, a no fail biscuit


  • Interested to try these out. I see they use two types of sugar, so wondering if this gives them the chewiness.


  • Sounds perfect to have on hand and certainly won’t take up much room in the freezer. Another bonus is I’ve got all the necessary ingredients on hand


  • Nothing better than chewy cookies – you can even make the same recipe as large single serves and eat them straight out the oven with ice-cream!


  • Our favourite — chewy and crunchy. It’s an art to get it right but the result is worth it.


  • That’s a lot of sugar for 12 cookies !


  • Looks so chewy and delicious


  • Chocolate chip cookies are always a favourite. So easy, and especially as I already have all the ingredients; and great idea to freeze.

    • Yes it’s handy to freeze cookie dough, but it the end of the day making the dough doesn’t take a lot of time at all

      • Cookie dough on stand by is always so handy.


  • Replace the chocolate chips with cut chocolate bar chunks and it’s even better.
