Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 125 gm unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips (good quality semi sweet white or milk chocolate chips)


  • 1. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar with an electric beater for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Alternatively use a hand whisk and beat for 5 - 10 minutes.
  • 2. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix well.
  • 3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa and mix well again.
  • 4. Slowly add milk until a soft dough is formed.
  • 5. Add chocolate chips and mix until evenly dispersed. Cover the bowl and chill for at least 15-20 minutes in the freezer. This will make it easier to scoop and shape into cookies.
  • 6. Preheat oven at 165 C
  • 7. Place butter paper on a baking tray or trays.
  • 8. Take out cookie dough from the freezer. Use a small ice-cream scoop or a measuring spoon to scoop out equal balls of cookie dough.
  • 9. Place them at least 2 inches apart from each other as the cookie dough will expand while baking.
  • 10. Bake in pre-heated oven for 15 - 18 minutes until light golden.
  • 11. Cool on a wire rack and store in an air-tight container.


For a crispier, crunchier cookie, bake for 20-25 minutes. The cookies will firm up once they cool, so don't worry if the middles seem soft. Don't try working with the dough before you chill it, you'll end up with a huge mess.
