Chocolate chip cookies

I used to love buying chewy cookies from cookie stalls, unfortunately they all have egg in them, but these are a great alternative, they’re really chewy in the centre especially when they are still warm from coming out of the oven.

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Makes approx 28 biscuits

The Ingredients:

  • 4oz Butter, softened
  • 2oz Caster sugar
  • 4oz Soft light brown sugar
  • 3tbsp Milk
  • 6oz Self raising flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100g chocolate, broken in to small pieces

The Method:

  1. Pre heat your oven to 180C Gas mark 4
  2. In a bowl beat together the butter, caster sugar and light brown sugar until smooth
  3. Add 1 tbsp milk and beat in to the butter and sugar mix
  4. Sift the flour in to the bowl and add the baking powder and salt and beat until the mix looks like a dough
  5. stir in the remaining milk and chocolate
  6. line a baking tray with baking paper and place teaspoons of the dough on to the tray, don’t place the dough too close together as the cookies will spread
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes, they should look a little brown but not over done otherwise the middle won’t be chewy
  8. Store in an air tight container

    I developed an egg intolerance about 2 years ago which means I miss out on lots of foods and treats I used to enjoy, that is until I came across this blog! WOW I am amazed at how many of the foods I used to love I can now have, egg free! I can’t wait to try some of these recipes, especially the egg free pancakes and choc chip cookies!
    Thank you!

    Hi, do you think these would be ok to make with sweets like M and M’s or smarties? I have seen these sold in shops like Tesco’s but never tried to make them?

    • Jude says:

      M&M’s sound good, I wonder if smarties would work too? I’ve only tried cooking with sugar coated chocolate once and the smarties list their colour and went brown…let me know how you get in though!

      Hi Leanne,

      I’m glad you both liked the recipe, could you tell the difference between a cake with egg and a cake without egg? Everyone I have baked it for can’t tell the difference.

      Remember to bake it again next time you run out of eggs!
