Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 24 cookies


  • 4 oz lightly salted butter , softened – plus extra for greasing
  • 1 1/2 oz vanilla caster sugar
  • 2 1/2 oz soft dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 oz plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 5 oz chocolate (of your choice), cut into pea-size pieces
  • 2 oz chopped walnuts – optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees and grease two baking sheets.
  • Cream the butter and the two sugars together until light and fluffy. Lightly mix the egg and gradually beat it into the creamed mixture.
  • Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and stir it into the mixture. Add chocolate and walnuts ( if using).
  • Spoon heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto the prepared sheets, leaving room to spread. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cookies are light brown.
  • Remove with a spatula while they are hot and place on any flat surface to cool. They will become crisp as they cool. Store in an airtight container.
  • They will freeze well, or you can freeze the uncooked mixture, just place the heaped teaspoons of the mixture in the freezer, and when they are frozen move to a container altogether. Bake as needed.


** Vanilla caster sugar is simple granulated sugar stored in a jar with two vanilla pods for flavor.
