  • 120 g Butter softened, unsalted
  • 125 g Light brown soft sugar
  • 45 g Caster sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 30 ml Whole milk or semi skimmed, or plant based
  • 200 g Plain flour (heat treated and cooled - see recipe for details)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 150 g Chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat your oven to 150C Fan/325F/Gas Mark 3
  • Spread the flour out evenly onto a lined baking tray. If you let the baking paper hang over the edges of the tray it will help later
  • Cook the flour for 8 minutes or until it reaches a temperature of 75C/165F - you can use a probe style thermometer to check this
  • Let the flour cool completely. If it is clumpy, sieve it before adding to the cookie dough
  • Using an electric mixer, mix up the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy
  • Add the vanilla extract and milk and mix in
  • Then add the flour and salt and mix until just combined
  • Finally add your chocolate chips (and any other mix ins) and mix gently until evenly distributed throughout the dough
  • The cookie dough is ready to serve! Roll into balls or dig in with a spoon to enjoy
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container either in the fridge for 1 week or the freezer for 3 months


  • I used a mix of dark and milk chocolate chips in the cookie dough, you can use all milk or all dark, or even white chocolate chips!
  • I highly recommend using a good quality vanilla extract as it really makes all the difference in the flavour of the cookie dough. Do not use an essence.
  • If you can't find light brown soft sugar, you can use all caster sugar instead.
  • I used whole milk, but semi skimmed works well too. Or a plant based alternative.
