Chocolate chip cookies
- 225g margarine or softened butter
- 175g light brown sugar
- 4tbsp golden syrup
- 340g self-raising flour
- 275g chocolate chips
- 2-4tbsp semi-skimmed milk
Heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.
Beat together the butter and sugar until well mixed – this is easiest with an electric hand-mixer.
Add in the flour, syrup, chopped chocolate and milk. Mix well.
Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking paper. Bake the cookies in batches if you don’t have many sheets.
Roll 1tbsp of the mixture into a ball, place it on the tray and squash it gently. As the cookies bake, the mixture will spread, so keep plenty of space between them.
Pop the cookies into the oven for 8-10 mins until golden. They will be very floppy when they come out after baking, so take care when you transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
Repeat until all the mixture is used.
