Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Easy, fail-proof recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I took the recipe from Women's Weekly and I was successful on the first attempt. In addition to the ingredients listed below, you also need the following tools: electric whisk or mixer, baking paper, baking tray and wire rack.

Serves: 24 cookies

Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins


  • 125 grams butter softened
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 75 grams caster or super fine sugar
  • 75 grams brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150 grams plain flour sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda sifted
  • 150 grams chocolate chips


  1. Beat butter, vanilla extract, sugars and egg in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth; do not overbeat.
  2. Stir in sifted flour and baking soda. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Line tray with baking paper. Spoon one tablespoon of cookie mixture onto tray 5cm apart.
  4. Bake in preheated oven of 180°C (356°F) for about 15 minutes. Cool cookies on wire rack. Store extras in air-tight container.

    Can replace plain flour with self raising flour?


    • wiffy replied: — January 3rd, 2012 @ 8:36 pm

      Hi, sorry I am not too sure about that. If you use self-raising flour, you may want to omit the baking soda.

    • wiffy replied: — January 3rd, 2012 @ 8:35 pm

      Hi, these are semi-soft cookies, definitely not the crispy type.

    Hi, can I ask if it is necessary to refrigerate the dough?


    • wiffy replied: — August 19th, 2013 @ 7:31 pm

      no need to do so.

    Hi Noobcook,

    Is like to check w u if I can keep the cookie mixture inside the fridge and bring to my friend’s house to bake. My mini oven can only place 6 to 9 cookies. She has a bigger oven which can bake in one big batch. Is it advisable? Thanks for reading.


    • wiffy replied: — September 2nd, 2013 @ 11:15 pm

      Yes you can refrigerate it, cover with lid or wrap it in cling :)

    Hi, can I use icing sugar instead of caster sugar? Also, is it possible to mix it without an electric mixer? Thanks!


    • wiffy replied: — November 13th, 2013 @ 11:16 am

      Yes you can substitute. But not sure about not using an electric mixer. Basically you need to mix it by hand until you see the consistency of the batter you see in the photo.

    Always use this recipe for cookie making.. But I cheat by melting the butter first for easy mixing by hand.. The outcome is awesome, taste great and my hubby love them!

      Is the texture for this cookie’s recipe the powdery type of the crunchy type?


      • wiffy replied: — December 12th, 2014 @ 5:44 pm

        They are semi-soft cookies, not the ultra crunchy ones.

    • wiffy replied: — September 3rd, 2015 @ 8:13 pm
