Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is a family favourite and makes about 3 dozen delicious chewy chocolate chip cookies and they ship well overseas 🙂

You could easily substitute the chocolate chips for nuts and fruit if you wanted to do something a bit different.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

What you need

  • 1 cup of butter
  • I cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 ¾ cup of plain flour
  • ½ cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of bicarbonate soda
  • 1-2 cups of mixed chocolate chips

What to do

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180°C
  2. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix until combined.
  4. Sift together the flour, cocoa and bi-carb, mix until combined.
  5. Stir through the chocolate chips.
  6. On a tray lined with grease proof paper place about a teaspoon sized ball and flatten them gently with a fork.
    These cookies about double in size when cooked, so make sure they are spaced a reasonable distance apart.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Bakers tip

Vacuum sealed cookies

Vacuum sealed cookies. I got my vacuum sealer from Deals Direct for about $80 including postage.

  • I get really, really bored hand rolling the cookies so I tend to roll the dough into a log about the width of a 50 cent piece and pop it in the fridge until it firms up again. Once its firm I cut about 1.5cm pieces off my dough log. I find it takes about a third of the time it does hand rolling each bally.
  • If you’re shipping them overseas stack them in a line and vacuum seal them. I then pop them in a Pringles container before putting them in the postage box. This seems to stop them from getting broken up and I’m told they arrive fresh 🙂
