I'd never made choc chip cookies before but thought I would give it a go. After a quick search I found a pretty simple recipe over at Best Recipes. It also gave me a good excuse to use my new electric mixer!
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup choc chips
Preheat oven to 160°C. Cream butter and sugars. Mix in vanilla essence and egg. Sift in flour until well combined, then add choc chips.
As always, you never know what's going to happen the first time you try a new cookie recipe. The first batch I used too much mixture for each cookie and they flattened out more then I thought they would. So I ended up with some giant cookies!
The next batch I used about a teaspoon of filling and they turned out just right. They only take about 10 minutes to cook and were very tasty!
