Old School Cookies, A Creation of My Own!


2 cups flour

1.5 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1.5 cup white sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 egg and 1 egg yolk

3 tbs of cream cheese

1.5 cup chocolate chips


  • Add your butter and sugars to a bowl and beat till creamy - I use my stand mixer with the beater attachment!

  • Add in your egg, cream cheese and beat again. If using vanilla, add it in now!

  • Mix in the plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cornstarch and salt then add them to the wet ingredients and beat till a cookie dough is formed!

  • Add in your Chocolate Chips and mix till they're distributed well!

  • Once they're mixed put your cookie dough in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or in the fridge for an hour or so!

  • While the cookie dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 180C or 350F.

  • Take your cookies out of the freezer/fridge and put onto a lined baking tray. and form 12 cookies. Flatten them a bit if you like your cookies flat.

  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

  • Once baked, leave them to cool on the tray for at least 30 minutes, as they will continue to bake whilst cooling. ENJOY!
