My Favourite Biscuit Recipe

My go-to, absolute favourite homemade cookies are so easy to make and always result in people asking for a copy of the recipe!

They are soft, fluffy on the inside, and taste like everyones favourite cookie with a red monster on the front ;)

INGREDIENTS:: (Makes approximately 20 cookies)
125gm of soft butter
1.5 cups of brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
2.5 cups of plain flour
1tsp baking soda
.5 cup each of dark and white chocolate buttons (or 1 cup of either)

Cream together with beater butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, lightly beating.

Sift and add to wet mixture, flour and baking soda.

Fold in chocolate buttons and stir until combined.

Shape them in your hands and lay them out on a tray. These expand a lot in the oven (almost doubling in size!) so leave a lot of room between each cookie. 

Bake on 180 degrees for 12-15minutes or until light golden in colour.

YUMMO! Enjoy!

And just for fun, here's a wee hyperlapse video of Milla and I making our weekly cookies!

  1. Just made these and they are awesome! A big thumbs up from my boys.

  2. Soph, these cookies are amazing. I always look at the aforementioned red monster branded cookies at the supermarket but never allow myself to spend that much money! These are such a great dupe. I think I might tweak the recipe a bit next time I make them (adding salt and nutmeg maybe).
    Love them, and hubby does too :) thanks!


Wowee! Thanks for leaving a comment :)
