  • 100g/3oz butter
  • 125g/4oz caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 200g/7oz plain flour
  • 75g/2oz chocolate chips


  1. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl. Using an electric beater, mix until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs (Note: The butter must not be softened beforehand).

  2. Add in the egg and vanilla essence. Beat until the ingredients are combined and the mixture looks smooth, but not creamy.

  3. Sift and fold in the flour. Roll the dough into a ball. If it is too sticky, add upto 25g more flour. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, line 2 baking trays with parchment. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C/ fan 150 degrees C/ 338 degrees F.

  5. Roll out the dough until it is 1cm thick. Use a 5cm by 6cm heart shaped cutter and a 5cm star cutter to stamp out lots of shapes. Lay them on the tray and gently press chocolate chips into each one.

  6. Bake for 5 to 10 minutes until golden-brown and slightly soft. Enjoy!
