Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had to bake a contribution for the school Christmas fair this week and as I remembered that last year there was an abundance of cakes, I decided to make biscuits instead.  DD loved helping me to make these, and enjoyed eating them even more!

125g butter (at room temp)
125g light soft brown sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup
1 egg
225g self-raising flour
100g chocolate chips (I used a mix of white & milk but you could adjust to your taste)

Cream together the butter & sugar...if your butter is too hard to work with because you forgot to get it out of the fridge early enough (ahem...), pop it in the microwave for just a few seconds.  

Next, beat in the golden syrup & egg, and then stir in the flour.

Take teaspoons of the mixture and roll it between your hands into walnut size balls.  Squash each ball gently down on a baking tray and pop the chocolate chips on top - pressed lightly into the ball so they stick but not far enough so they are buried.

Cook for 10-15 mins at 180.

All ready to sell at the PTA Christmas Fair!
