Chocolate Chip Cookies – the best!


It’s been a very busy couple of weeks in our household, so I didn’t do any baking last weekend, so thought I’d make up for it with a few home favourites.  My youngest got his favourite blueberry teddy bear cake yesterday, just in time for him to share with his sister’s boyfriend – see who gets to it first!  And, everybody at home loves the chocolate chip cookies, my husband in particular, so I thought I’d make a big pile of them.

I did get a message from my daughter yesterday when I sent her the pics of the cookies to say that we should be dieting, and she can’t turn her back for one minute before I get the flour out – hahaha – she’s so right!  Here we go:

Gotta love the book Grandma’s Best Recipes, page 215, and for once, I haven’t adapted it, except for the doubling up of course 🙂


  • 125 grams of soft margarine, plus extra for greasing – I don’t do the greasing bit, I’ve got these fab things, can’t remember what they’re called, but you put them in the cooking tray, they’re silicone, so no greasing required – and we use Stork margarine
  • 175 grams of plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 85 grams of light muscovado sugar
  • 5 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 125 grams of dark chocolate chips – I use Sainsbury’s cook’s dark chocolate chips and I put in 150 grams if I’m making one portion and 300 grams for doubling



  1. Preheat the over to 190, and get two baking trays ready
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat well until combined – now, if you want the cookies to come out looking more chocolatey (is that a word?), then nuke the margarine and put that on last over the chocolate chips, and then beat well etc


Then bake it in the over for about 9-10 minutes until they’re golden brown, and then put them onto a wire rack to cool completely before chomping on them!
