Ingredients

  • 225 grams butter at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown sugar 180 grams
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar 110 grams
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 & 1/2 cups plain flour 375 grams
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch salt
  • 250 grams chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 170C (fan forced) and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Place the softened butter, brown sugar and caster sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on a high speed for 5-6 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract, then beat for another 3 minutes on high speed or until well combined.
  • Add the plain flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and milk chocolate chips and mix on a low speed for 1 minute or until just combined.
  • Roll into walnut-size balls and place onto the prepared baking trays and flatten slightly. Make sure to leave a 3cm gap between each chocolate chip cookie as they will spread a little. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.
  • Place your chocolate chip cookies into the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops begin to turn golden brown. Carefully remove the chocolate chip cookies from the oven and after 5minutes transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Place the softened butter, brown sugar and caster sugar into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 30 seconds speed 3.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 20 seconds, speed 4 or until light and creamy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the plain flour, bicarb soda, eggs, vanilla extract and salt and mix for 10 seconds, speed 4.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the chocolate chips. Select the 'kneading/dough' function and mix for 30 seconds or until a soft dough forms.
  • Scoop up the mixture and roll into walnut-size balls and place onto the prepared baking trays and flatten slightly. Make sure to leave a 3cm gap between each chocolate chip cookie as they will spread a little. Repeat until you have used all of the mixture.
  • Place your chocolate chip cookies into the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops begin to turn golden brown. Carefully remove the chocolate chip cookies from the oven and after 5minutes transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

It's important to use butter that is soft for this recipe, if it's still hard it will take longer to incorporate with the sugars.
To help prevent your cookies from spreading too much, place the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill. This is a good idea if you are making these biscuits in a warm environment and find the dough is very soft.
Both the cookie dough and the cookies are freezer friendly.
If freezing the dough, I suggest rolling it into a log and covering with baking paper and foil. When ready to bake, allow the dough to thaw slightly and then cut the biscuits with a sharp knife and place onto the baking tray.
These cookies are best stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
You can use either milk or dark chocolate chips for this recipe.
