Fancy a cuppa? Why not give everyone a treat with this vintage chocolate chip cookies recipe.  


  • 150g salted butter, softened  
  • 80g light brown muscovado sugar  
  • 80g granulated sugar  
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract  
  • 1 large egg  
  • 225g plain flour  
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda  
  • ¼ tsp salt  
  • 200g plain chocolate chips or chunks  



  • Heat the oven to 190C/fan170C/gas 5 and line two baking sheets with non-stick baking paper.  
  • Put 150g softened salted butter, 80g light brown muscovado sugar and 80g granulated sugar into a bowl and mix until creamy.  
  • Beat in 2 tsp vanilla extract and 1 large egg.  
  • Sift 225g plain flour, ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda and ¼ tsp salt into the bowl and mix it in with a wooden spoon.  
  • Add 200g plain chocolate chips or chunks and stir well.  
  • Use a teaspoon to make small scoops of the mixture, spacing them well apart on the baking trays. This mixture should make about 30 cookies.  
  • Bake for 8–10 mins until they are light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre if you press them. Leave on the tray for a couple of mins to set and then lift onto a cooling rack.
