Recipe For The Best Cookie Dough Ever!

Now not to toot my own horn, but I sort of make the best chocolate chip cookies!
See a friend of mine that loves baking gave me her recipe a long time ago. Over the years I've added a things here and taken away things there, and now they've finally become my own :)
Now for all my fellow sweet tooth's out there, here's the recipe!

1 Cup Plain Flour,
1 Cup Self Raising Flour,
1 Cup Brown Sugar,
1 Egg,
160-170 grams (Very) Soft Butter. Start with 160 but if dough is too dry add extra 10 grams butter.
1 Cup of Choc Chips. If you are not a big chocolate fan you can change it to 1 cup of Nuts, Raisins, Peanut Butter etc.

Step 1~ Preheat oven 180 Fan Forced oven. Mix all dry ingredients together, then add egg and melted butter.
Step 2~ Form dough into 30 medium sized balls, and place on baking tray. Press down gently to slightly flatten them out.
Step 3~ Bake 10-15 minutes. After baking place cookies on a cooling rack.

Now if your eggs aren't rotten or your oven isn't broken, these should turn out great and open your eyes to what real chocolate chip cookies should taste like!

I hope you all enjoyed this recipe, if you have any questions, comment away!
If you did bake these cookies, please post a photo of your sweet treats onto my

  1. Hello,
    Thanks for the recipe. I'm in the US so I had to do some converstions and thought I'd share incase anyone else needs them.

    170grams Butter= 12 Tablespoons

    180 Oven= 350 in US


    1. Thank you Kristi! I'm sure that will be really helpful to some of my other readers :)

  2. Wow Olivia I bought a cookie dough kit from my supermarket and it was rubish and expensive. I have since been searching for a really good recipe and yours is really and most definately the Best! I made them with my kids and they added 2 teaspoons coccoa powder to turn them into chocolate cookies.
    Thank you for sharing

    1. you've just put the biggest smile on my face right now :) I'm so glad you like my recipe!
      Hope you have a lovely day! Xx

  3. Great recipe, and THANK YOU for the conversions!!!!!

  4. "The sweetness of the cherries balances out the saltiness of the nuts."? Meaning? Didn't find any in the recipe :(

    1. Haha whoopsy, didn't mean to type that there, sorry! :)

    2. Thanks, sounds delicious away :)

      Unfortunately, it's not easy to find self-raising flour here, in Iceland. I wonder if I can use usual flour with baking powder and salt added to it instead. Time to experiment then :)

    3. This might help you out!
      1 cup sifted self-rising flour = 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
      Have a great day!
