I love making cookies at any time of year but around Christmas I tend to switch up the recipe a bit to make it more festive. The original recipe I used was the BBC Good Food Millie’s Cookies recipe but this has evolved over time so it is a bit different!
- 250g Self Raising Flour
- 175g Light Brown Sugar
- 50g Caster Sugar
- 100g Salted Butter
- 1 Egg
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 3 tsp Ginger
- 200g Chocolate Chips (or roughly chopped chocolate)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Soften the butter and combine with both types of sugar.
- Add in the egg and vanilla essence and combine with the sugar and butter mix.
- Sieve the flour into the bowl and add in the salt along with the cinnamon and ginger. Mix everything together.
- Add in the chocolate chips.
- Section into 12 and roll into balls.
- Put on the baking tray (I usually put 6 to a tray as they spread out quite a bit!) and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Do keep checking on them as depending on the oven it can vary quite a bit!
- Once they are out of the oven, they are really nice warm but are also great once cooled. They do keep in a tin for 4 or 5 days!
