Amira's Chocolate Chip Cookies

A friend of mine gave me this recipe and I've altered a little to my preferred taste. You might like to drizzle chocolate over these once cooked and cooled, that would give a "cafe" look to these biscuits. Cook for 10 minutes for a fudge cookie or for 12 minutes for dunking into your coffee/tea when no one's watching. Half the mixture for a smaller batch. Thanks Sebastiana for the cookie tin, a beautiful birthday gift !

250g unsalted Butter, softened
3/4 cups White Sugar
3/4 cups Brown Sugar
1 teas Vanilla Essence
2 Eggs
3 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour
125g Dark Chocolate Buttons
125g Milk Chocolate Buttons


Preheat oven to 180oC (170oC fan forced) and line 3 large baking trays with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl with electric mixture beat together butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and creamy, add vanilla essence and then eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the flour and add to the butter mixture. Using a sharp knife and chopping board, chop both kinds of chocolate into tiny pieces and add to the mixture. Beat all ingredients together until well combined. Form 24g balls of mixture and place on baking trays, press lightly with fork and bake for 10 minutes for a fudge cookie or 12 minutes for a more crunchier cookie.
