One for the children, a fun and easy recipe that is great for an occasion like a birthday. These cookies are soft in the middle and golden brown on the outside and the chocolate chips melt in your mouth when taking your first bite. For a variation add smarties to the cookie dough.

225 Grams Butter

140 Grams Caster sugar

1 Medium Egg yolk

2 tsp Vanilla extract

280 Grams Plain flour

140 Grams Chocolate chips


Pre heat the oven to 180oc and line two baking trays with baking parchment.

In a bowl beat together the butter and sugar until smooth.  Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and stir in.  Sift in the flour and stir with a wooden spoon, add the chocolate chips and mix with your hands, make into small balls, place onto the baking tray and flatten with your hand until about 1 cm thick.
