Mum's Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I have seen far too many healthy recipes being posted for the new year. Have you guys seen the weather outside? It's hideous out there & 'healthy food' is not what you are in need of to cope with the 'back to work blues'.
You are going to need something like this. These cookies famously caused a minor riot at a school bake sale - which says a little more about my school than my cookies - but these are pretty amazing. They are a little bit of a family secret which have been getting better & better with time
I wish I knew where my mum got this recipe from but it's been through so many versions at this point that you probably wouldn't be able to recognise the original anyway....
Usually these cookies are incredible warm & pretty good once they've cooled but I've added a little cinnamon & really good quality dark chocolate chips I think I've finally fixed that.... You'll have to let me know. Usually, however, we made these with whatever bags of chocolate chips we could find......I have made them with edible lavender, a bag of white chocolate chips & slivered almonds - those worked really well too.
But, yeah. These are my families famous Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 12-14 cookies

Ingredients

  • 100g margarine
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • 3 & a half tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 175g plain flour
  • 75g wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 tsp. bicarbonate soda
  • 100g white chocolate chips
  • 100g milk chocolate chips
  • 100g dark chocolate chips
Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190 C/375 F.
Beat the margarine, sugar, vanilla & cinnamon together until light & fluffy.
Beat in the egg & then the flour & bicarbonate of soda.
Stir in the chocolate chips & then mix well.
Place heaped teaspoons of the dough, generously spaced, onto a lined baking sheet & spread a little - until roughly cookie shaped.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned but still slightly soft to the touch.
Allow to cool & then enjoy.

    1. These take basically no time, I made the whole batch in under an hour & I was only able to use one shelf in the oven. Usually it would only take half an hour....x
