Hi all, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes. This recipe is from one of the cookbooks I have at home. It's by Natalie Oldfield and it's called Gran's Sweet Pantry. I highly recommend this book if you love baking.

This is the link to here website, go check it out:


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate buttons (buttons are always better than chips)
  • 180g butter melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
chocolate chocolate

This method isn't necessarily how it's written in the book. I follow the general method but it's in my own words and the order I do things to help with time management.

1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2) Cut and weigh the butter to get the correct amount. Chop up and place in a pot or in the microwave to melt.
3) While the butter is melting in a medium bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and chocolate. Then set aside.
4) In another bowl put in the melted butter, both sugars, the yolk, egg, and vanilla. Whisk until they're combined.
5) Once combined pour into the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.
6) Grease or line two cooking trays (you can do this before you start or at the end, it doesn't matter).
7) Place spoonfuls of dough onto the tray making sure they are a decent amount apart because they spread. Flatten lightly with a fork.
8) The recipe says to bake for 15 minutes. I personally bake them for 13 minutes as our oven gets really hot. I suggest cooking them for a few minutes less if you aren't sure, check them when the time is up. If they are golden on top they're cooked. You can always put them back in if they aren't done enough for you :)
*9) Transfer to a wire rack to cool down.
