Chewy on the outside and soft on the inside - these are a doddle to make!

Why do French and Latin homework when you can make these. The batter is ready to be rolled. I had to get in with my hands to combine the ingredients do you think that is ok?

I have never left a comment on any recepie but this occasion I will do it because its a easiest, quickest and yummiest cookie recepie I have ever made.We did with chocolate chips only reduced sugar amount.I was brave to make double amount at first attempt and no regrets. They are gorgeously melting when eaten straight from oven with cold cup of milk.I am sure they will taste lovely next day if any left.My 6y old loves raw cookie dough so it was half empty bowl before baking.They bake very quick so don't leave the kitchen for long…Many thanks for recepie.

These were delicious and they came out absolutely perfect. I made most of them as the recipe called for but I didn't have any goodies to throw in as extra (choc chips, etc.) aside from a little ground cinnamon so I got a little crafty and put a small dollop of strawberry jam in the center of several and oh man, did they turn out awesome. Sprinkled the tops with a little cinnamon sugar once they were done, too. Will DEFINITELY use this again!

Just baked these as a late night snack for me and my other half.. Added a little bit of chocolate dessert syrup as we had no golden syrup and a small handful of chopped nuts.. By far the best yet most simple cookie recipe I have tried!

We made these with only 60g of sugar and they still tasted great!

probably a silly question but do you put them on grease proof paper?

Very Nice and adaptable! Used honey instead of golden syrup and worked well. However the end result is too sweet for my liking so next time I will try it with a lot less sugar or just use nuts instead of (sweet) chocolate.

Brilliant recipe - I'd been looking for a decent cookie recipe for a while, only downside is that I've been eating way too many of these now..

I was surprised how yummy these turned out! Overbaked my first batch (had the fan of the oven on, will have to try without the fan or cut down on the baking time) but am looking forward to trying again! Thanks for the great recipe!

When you use the fan oven, reduce the oven temperature by 20 degrees Celsius- that should stop you from overbaking them!

just made these in 20 mins flat - really easy to make and exactly how cookies should be - crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle - yummy

Easy and delicious! Adaptable too! Definitely worth trying!

Brilliant recipe. I've found better cookie recipes but they all take much more work than these do and the results aren't that much better. These were great cookies with minimal effort. I'm temped to stick to this recipe in future.

I've now made a couple of batches, one with honeycomb & toffee pieces and another with milk & white chocolate pieces, both batches were perfect and so easy to make.

I just typed in a quick google search to find cookies that can be made with self raising flower and these came up! Absolutely brilliant! So tasty and moreish! I will be making these a lot more, thanks!!! :)

Omg, these cookies are SOOOOOO good! The cookies I make never seem to turn out right, but these are so quick and easy, with no fancy ingredients and minimal washing up! Already eaten three of them and they only came out of the oven about ten minutes ago! :D

These are the best cookies I ever made!
Crisp on edge, chewy centre.
Made one batch with nuts and another with mixed fruit. Very sweet, but not unpleasantly so. Could easily cut down on sugar by a quarter, especially fruit ones.
Beware though, they really spread out. May need to shape straight from the oven, or make on xl baking tray or in batches of 5.

Lindsay91's picture

What quantity of "cookie extras" would everyone recommend using? I'm going to make milk and white choc chip cookies. Should I add 150g (same quantity as the flour)?
Please respond if you see this asap- thank you! :)

Do you have to use the golden syrup?

RosesAreRed38's picture

I don't think you do. I put about 3/4 of a tbsp in and it they are still quite sweet so you could substitute for a pinch more sugar or something. I'm only 3 years late :p

WOW!! These are spectacular! I substituted the golden syrup with about about 3/4 tbsp of black treacle, and added ginger and allspice to make delicious gingerbread style cookies, which is something I've never seen in a soft cookie like this. I'm in love with you and your recipe, they've come out beautifully and I shan't be buying cookies again now I know how adaptable they are :-D
