We love us a good cookie. With extra chocolate chips. And that perfect crisp exterior with the right balance of the chewy interior. YUM.

Chocolate Chip Cookies by Ayesha


  • 2 cups flour / maida
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 heaped tablespoon peanut butter (preferable chunky)
  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Line your baking pan with wax paper or grease with a bit of butter. Don’t do both together as the cookies will spread too much.
  • 2. Melt the butter in a medium bowl and add the sugars. Beat until well blended.
  • 3. Add vanilla, egg and egg yolk and beat until fluffy.
  • 4. Beat in the peanut butter.
  • 5. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into the butter/egg mix and beat until just blended.
  • 6. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.
  • 7. Refrigerate the batter for a couple of hours just to make it easier to handle the dough.
  • 8. Drop cookie dough 1 super heaped tablespoon at a time onto the prepared baking pan. Cookies should be 2 inches apart.
  • 9. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are light brown. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
