Chocolate Chip cookies

I happen to be a huge fan of cookies. I need it with my cup of coffee or tea, or a glass of milk. One will always find a bunch of cookies in my cookie jar.
This craziness for cookies forced me to try out these sweet devils myself.
 I followed the recipe from the big book of treats by Pooja Dhingra. It was my first time so followed it to the core. It came out really well, just the way it should be. Gooey and chewy.
Chocolate Chip Cookies

75gms Butter
1tsp Vanilla Essence
1tsp Baking Powder
65g Brown Sugar
50g Castor Sugar
1 egg
175g Flour
175 Dark Chocolate Chips


  • Whisk together the butter, brown sugar, Castor sugar and Vanilla essence till soft and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl lightly whisk the egg.
  • Slowly add in the sugar and butter mixture.
  • Whisking Properly.
  • Sieve the baking powder and flour together.
  • Fold in the flour in the sugar and butter mixture.
  • Mix in the Dark Chocolate Chips.
  • Cling wrap the mixture and place it in refrigerator for 2 hrs.
  • Preheat the oven at 165 degrees.
  • Make the baking tray ready, either by greasing it or line it with a parchment paper.
  • With a tablespoon or an ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough on to the baking tray in medium sized rounds.
  • leaving a 2 inch gap between the cookies.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or till the edge starts browning.
Important Tip:
  • Cookies tend to spread, in order to stop this to happen, keep the prepared dough overnight in the fridge  or
  • Make the balls. keep it on the baking tray.
  • now place this tray in d freezer for 10-15min before baking.
  • this would refrain it from spreading.
