Guests coming? No time to pick up something from the market…fret not! Bake these simple cookies at home and surprise your guests! And yes keep them away from kids…they simply get addicted to it! 🙂

This will roughly give you 6-9 large cookies. If you want more adjust the quantity of ingredients!


Butter – 100 gms

Refined flour (Maida) – 1 cup

White sugar  – 1/2 cup

Brown Sugar – 1/2 cup

Egg – 1 no

Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp

Baking soda – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 2 pinches

Chocolate Bar / chips – 1 big bar / 1 cup of chips  (if using bar roughly chop it)


  1. Place a baking sheet over cookie rack
  2. Preheat the oven at 180 degree C along with the rack with baking sheet
  3. Whip butter nicely
  4. Add both types of sugar to the butter and blend it nicely till creamy
  5. Add egg and beat
  6. Add vanilla essence and beat
  7. Add baking soda, salt and finally flour little by little & keep blending
  8. Add chocolate pieces and gently fold with a spatula
  9. If the dough is soft, refrigerate for about 1/2 hour until firm
  10. Drop the batter on the baking sheet with a spoon
  11. Keep enough distance between two cookies. It expands while cooking. So if there isn’t enough space you might end up getting chocolate cookie bar 🙂

  13. Cook on a wire rack & serve


Till next time….happy cooking!
