An Old Favourite: Choc Chip Cookies

Cook Meter: Amateur
Cost Meter: $$

There is only chocolate chip recipe that I have ever used. Most of my Kiwi mates know it off by heart. My mother cooked it, her mother cooked and it's as easy as 1...2...3

The Edmonds Cookbook Choc Chip Cookie recipe brings back vivid memories of my childhood. Trying to peak through the oven door, waiting for the agonisingly long 15 mins for them to come out of the oven, so I can eat a gooey warm one with a cold glass of milk. Knowing that there would be some left over condensed milk so you could dip your finger in the can without getting into too much trouble.

Every time I take the 20mins to make a couple of batches (One batch would be gone in a day) the crumbly taste in your mouth is like a time machine to days of summer and pig tails and swimming in the lake.

I can't wait till my child is a little older and I can make him a batch and watch with delight as he gets his first taste of kiwi culinary history.

Ingredients (Double portions - make double its worth it)
3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
250g butter
4 tbsp sweetened condensed milk

2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips

1tsp vanilla essence


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius
  2. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla essence, and condensed milk until light and mixture whitens slightly.
  3. Add sifted flour, baking powder, and chocolate chips.
  4. Roll into balls, place on baking paper. Press flat with a fork just like your Mum did and cook for 15 mins.
