Sweet tooth

Sometimes you feel like nibbling on something sweet in the afternoon for no reason at all. And those times, sadly for your hips, the chocolate chip cookie fills the gap like no other thing does.

I’ve made several versions of chocolate chip cookies and this, in my opinion, is the one that yields the best results.

Luckily for me, this batch was for sale…


  • 250 g butter
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 20 cc vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 300 g chocolate chips
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 20 g baking powder

With an electric whisker, beat the butter and icing sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time and flavour with vanilla extract.

Add the plain flour sifted with the baking powder.

Stop beating and add the chocolate chips and fold in with a rubber spatula.

With the help of a spoon, place little portions of the dough on a baking tray.

Bake in a preheated oven (moderate to high) between 15 and 20 minutes.

You can substitute the chocolate chips for chopped nuts, raisins or whatever you like.
