Chocolate Cookies

I had a little helper with this recipe. My daughter wanted to make something for my blog so we picked these easy cookies, she loved the chocolate tea bread with the walnuts so this seemed like a good choice!


3 oz butter
3 oz granulated sugar
3 oz brown sugar
Few drops of vanilla essence
1 egg
6 oz self raising flour
A pinch of salt
2 oz walnuts chopped
2-4 oz chocolate chips

Cream the butter with the sugars and essence, then beat in the egg. Fold in the sifted flour and salt, with the nuts and chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls of mixture on the baking trays and bake at 180 for 12-15 minutes. Cool on the trays for 1 minute, then place on a wire rack to cool. This should yield 20.

My daughter was in charge of measuring out the ingredients so I definitely think we used 4oz of chocolate, and quite possibly a bit more!! Not really much more to say about making this, pretty basic cookie recipe!

We ended up with over 20, but ours are slightly random in size!

These don’t take long to bake and do smell rather good! We had made these before starting our dinner so had to try hard to refrain from eating them straight from the oven.

Once cooled these are quite crunchy and taste brilliant! I’ve made cookies plenty of times before and often add chocolate chips or raisins but have never made cookies with walnuts, they were a really great combination. We had a few of these after dinner and loved them!
