Chocolate Chip Biscuits


This biscuit recipe has been really popular amongst my friends and family over the years. It reminds me of my uni days and a friend who used to help me eat them. Liam had a little friend from kinder over to play this afternoon, so Noah helped me cook these in readiness.

125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
125g (or so) chocolate chips

Cream together the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla essence. Add the egg, and then the flour and the salt.

Add the chocolate chips, roll into small balls and flatten slightly. Even if it's only enough to stop them from rolling around on the tray. Place them on a tray lined with baking paper. Leave lots of space around them, they spread out a bit. I made 30 biscuits and spread them over two trays.


Bake in a moderate oven for about ten minutes or until golden.

If you've got one of those ovens that burns the bottom of everything, place an extra, empty biscuit tray on one of the lower shelves.



  1. Mmmm... must be something in the air at the minute!! I'm intrigued by the addition of salt, Imay just have to bookmark this for later in the twenty treats challenge!

    (and great tip with the tray!)

  2. Thanks so much for the recipe! Just baked some with my daughter... they're delicious!!!
