The first time I read a chocolate chips cookies recipe I was surprised about the quantity of ingredients needed (salt, soda powder, etc.), but studying with a bit of time was obvious that it is possible to make such marvellous cookies in way far more simple. I don’t know how does taste the cookies of the original recipe, but these were so good that I had to control them closely for making them last two days. And I made 43.

1 cup margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar or 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder
3 tablespoons of crushed walnuts
125 gr. of your favorite chocolate crushed into small pieces (better if it’s cold when crushed to avoid it melting)
wholemeal flour


Preheat the oven at 180 ºC. Beat the margarine with the sugar in a bowl. Add slowly the eggs, one at a time and continuing beating, and also the milk, vanilla and walnuts. Add slowly the flour until forming a soft dough like a cake one. Drop the chocolate chips into the dough and stir. Cover a tray with aluminium paper or other suitable for baking and grease it with a drop of olive oil. Pour over it with the help of a teaspoon, small balls of the mixture. Remember to separate around 5 cm because they will grow a lot. This is the moment to drop over them some more chocolate chips if you want them with extra chocolate (you will need to press a bit the chips into the dough). Bake them for 10-15 minutes or until their borders are golden. They must be a bit soft when taking them out of the oven because they will dry a bit afterwards.


In my first cookis I’ve added a tablespoon of cinnamon. You can add them lots of ingredients: grated lemon or coconut, all types of chocolate (noir, white, with flavour such as mint...). If your want the cookies grow more at the oven add before the flour two tablespoons of baking powder.


You can substitute the walnuts for almonds, or the chocolate for fruit confits, especially if they are berries.
