Soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. Buttery cookies with an addition of chocolate. Dark, milk or white - your favourite. Classic American Chocolate Chip Cookies - everyone's favourite. An ideal sweet snack for Cakesaurus' journey back home...

Who hasn't heard about chocolate chip cookies? Probably no one! They appear in almost every American movie or tv show. They are a tasty treat for Santa, Cookie Monster or, as you will see below, for Cakesaurus. Bakesaurus' cousin travels back home and I'm not sure when will he be back again. I prepared delicious chocolate chip cookies for him to take for the road. Brown sugar makes them soft on the inside and crispy on the outside - do not omit it!

Recipe is a classic Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from Nestle Toll House; this one comes from Sheilia Lukins' "USA Cookbook".

Chocolate Chip Cookies

about 28 cookies, 20g each


  • 110g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, soft
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 175-1800C (3500F). In a large bowl, place butter and sugars and beat until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix just until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together flour, salt and soda. Add to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Do not overmix or else you will add air to the dough which will influence the consistency of the cookies.
  3. Add chocolate chips and gently stir just until combined.
  4. Line a pan with baking paper. Using a spoon, an ice-cream scoop or your hands, place pieces of dough on the pan. I weighted mine 20g each, formed in my hands (they're a bit sticky) and placed on the pan 3cm apart (they spread). I got 14 cookies per tray.
  5. Bake for 9-10 minutes until the edges of the cookies turn slightly brown. Remember that after taking them from the oven they will be still baking for a second so don't worry if they are pretty soft. Eat within 5-7 days (as if they will stay that long ;))


"Omnomnomnom verrry good!"
