The only thing better than chocolate cookies is double chocolate chip cookies!
The cupboards are bare so thought I would track down a new cookie recipe for the kids lunch boxes tomorrow and came across this one in the old recipe books so gave it a whirl and they are seriously good.
The house smells of scrummy chocolately chocolateness and there possibly isn’t anything better than that! My son gives them a 10/10 and my husband said he could not possibly critique until he had eaten a few more…….so I take that as a very good sign.
This is another recipe which is incredibly simple using every day pantry staples. Easy to double this recipe if you are wanting more, but it makes 20 good sized cookies on its own. I do cream the butter and sugar, the easiest way to do that is in a food mixer or with electric beaters, but once that step is done it is so easy!
You will need
Self Raising Flour
Chocolate Chips or Drops
For many baking cookies is something they can do with their eyes closed, for others they need to try a few recipes first to find the one for them. The reason I love this particular recipe is it is just so easy, and has some great simple techniques. Remember when ALL biscuits were flattened first with a fork – but the ones from cafes always look so smooth and lovely! Guess what, put the fork away, you can create delicious cooking cookies and no fork lines.
This cookie dough does not have to be chilled before you roll it out, so you simply prepare the dough, roll into balls, flatten with a lightly damp hand and pop on some extra chocolate chips or drops before baking. These are a lovely thick cookie, soft and crumbly texture when eaten. Such a quick and easy recipe, I would love to hear what you think.

We have been trying a few more of your recipes and they are sooo good. I love these biscuits. Bevan said the one pot brownie was the best he had ever tasted! Looking foward to trying some more…
Oh that’s wonderful to hear! Thank you. Can’t wait to hear what you try next xox
They are good with just the 1/3 cup of raw sugar and the wholemeal flour; not too sweet. I used Whitakers 72% Dark Ghana for the chocolate. Turned out nice.
I just used wholemeal flour and used just 1/3 cup raw sugar only, will bake a when closer to dinner time.
Going to make them, but can you tell me if 160 temp is for fan oven please
Standard bake for my recipes.
These came out perfect. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipes.
I’m so pleased to hear that. Enjoy
Thank you so much. Can’t wait to make them ?
Let me know what you think ☺️
These look delicious! If I don’t have self-raising flour, how much baking powder would you recommend I add to a cup of plain flour?
The ratio is one cup of plain white flour to 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt 🙂

Can this be made without a food processor?
You can, you need to cream and butter and sugar but you can do this by hand the old fashioned way ☺️
