Easy, Scrumptious, Soft & Chewy Choc-Chip Cookies



Faced with a cold wet weekend indoors with the kids I decided yesterday that some biscuit baking (followed by some biscuit scoffing) might be a nice way to while away some time with the children.

“But you are not the cakey-bakey-biscuit-makey kind of mum,” I hear you cry, and of course, under normal circumstances you would be quite right.  But since Anzac day when the children and I managed to whip up our very first batch of Anzac biscuits, I must admit, I have renewed my faith in my biscuit-baking prowess.

So I bailed up one of my cakey-bakey –biscuit-makey mum friends for a easy-peasy recipe that even I would have difficulty stuffing up.

She gave me her ‘Scrumptious Soft and Chewy Choc-Chip’ recipe, and it was so perfect I just have to share.



  • Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Pour butter into a large bowl and stir in brown sugar & caster sugar until smooth and sugar is mostly dissolved.
  • Lightly beat the egg with a whisk or fork and stir into the sugar mixture along with the vanilla.
  • Sift flours and baking powder together into a small bowl and gradually mix into the sugar mixture until combined.
  • Stir through chocolate chips.
  • Drop rounded tablespoons of the cookie mixture onto lined baking trays.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
  • Voila!
  • Allow to cool, then scoff your face!





Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
