Now that everyone’s feeling festive, I wanted to share a cookie recipe that’s really special to me. It’s my Grandma’s classic cookie recipe, and you only need five ingredients. They’re super easy to make and they make a great gift.
Watch below, have a go at home, and tell me how it went. Happy holidays!
Iskra’s Grandma’s Classic Cookie Recipe
75 grams [3/8 cups] butter
75 grams [3/8 cups] of brown sugar
150 grams [3/4 cups] of self-raising flour
3 drops of vanilla essence
1 pinch of salt (I prefer Himalayan salt.)
100 grams [1/2 cups] chocolate chips
How to Make Them:
1. Preheat your oven to 350° F [176° Celsius].
2 Put 75 grams [3/8 cups] of butter in a bowl. (Substitute margarine or vegetable spread if you’d like.)
3. Mix in 75 grams of brown sugar [3/8 cups].
4. Cream it all together until the butter and sugar combine together, and it gets soft. It will look paler, creamier, and fluffier in texture. (This should take about a minute.)
5. Add a few drops of vanilla essence and a pinch of salt. (I like to use Himalayan salt.)
6. Crack one egg into the bowl, breaking it with a tap of a knife.
7. Mix it all together until everything is combined. Make sure to scrape all the dough from the sides of the bowl.
8. Add 150 grams [3/4 cups] of self-raising flour (You can use a sieve if you want them extra light and fluffy.) If you don’t have self-raising flour, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.
9. Before everything is totally combined, fold in your chocolate chips 100 grams [1/2 cups.]
10. Roll your cookies into a ball and press each down for a cookie shape. If you prefer, you can roll it into a log and cut the dough into cookie shapes using cookie cutters. Up to you.
11. Drop them on a parchment paper-lined pan evenly spaced.
12. Bake them for ten minutes if you like them chewy and gooey like me.
13. Once they’re out of the oven, wait five to to minutes for the cookies to cool and enjoy!
