mum’s chocolate chip cookies

I remember my mum making these when I was a little kid and I always used to love sneaking one from the cooling tray as they were still warm and gooey in the middle. This recipe makes HEAPS of cookies which is a good thing as they are often eaten by the handful.
I like to make these with milk or dark chocolate chips but you can do half a cup of dark, milk and white chips for a triple chocolate chip biscuit. I also like to keep my cookies a bit soft in the middle but you can make yours nice and crunchy 🙂

1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
175g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup self raising flour
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Place sugars and butter into a mixing bowl and mix until creamy. Add vanilla and egg and mix again until well combined.
Sift the flours into the mix and stir using a wooden spoon. Stir in chocolate chips using the wooden spoon and mix until all ingredients are well combined.
Place teaspoons of the mixture onto the baking tray and bake for about 15 minutes. Cool on the tray for five minutes before putting them on a wire cooling rack.
