Classic choc chip cookies

choc chip

An old favourite, these are soft and melty and popular with just about everyone. The recipe is taken and modified slightly from an ancient cookbook that came with a Sunbeam food processor some time in the late 80s/early 90s. The food processor is long gone, but the wonderful recipe lives on!

I’ve always made these with a food processor, but if you don’t have one I imagine electric beaters would do the trick just as well.


  • 2 cups SR flour
  • 1/2 cup cooking margarine, softened and chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped (or choc chips)


  1. Preheat fan-forced oven to 180 and line cookie tray with baking paper
  2. Process margarine, sugar, egg and vanilla until thoroughly mixed
  3. Scrape mixture into a large bowl
  4. Stir in flour and chocolate, mix it all up
  5. Roll into small balls and press onto the tray
  6. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the cookies start to turn golden.
