I stumbled across this recipe when I was last at my Aunts in New Zealand. I live by this recipe and I love using this recipe when I am babysitting. It is a simple recipe that I know by heart. It is a child friendly recipe, but adult supervision and or assistance for children under thirteen is needed.
Preheat oven to 180C
Line three large baking trays with non stick baking paper
Using electric beaters or a mixmaster/kitchen aid mixer, cream butter, both sugars and vanilla until pale and creamy.
Stop the machine occasionally and use a spatula to scrape down the sides and base of bowl
Add the egg until well combined
Stir the plain and self raising flour in a separate small bowl
Add the flour and chocolate chips to the butter mixture and stir in until well combined.
Form small heaped teaspoons of mixture and place as balls about 6cm apart from each other on the baking tray
Bake for 13 - 15 minutes until they are lightly golden but still very soft.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes on trays then transfer to a wire rack.
You can make them peanut butter and choc chips by adding in 1/3 cup of peanut butter when mixing the butter and sugars together, but do not use 125 grams of butter, only use 75 grams and the two thirds of a cup of peanut butter, because the peanut butter already has enough fat and oil in it.
