  • 2 cups flour (250g)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 90 g
  • 1/2 cup white sugar 100 g
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened 170g
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Handful M &M's for topping - optional


  • Preheat oven to 180 C (350F). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.
  • In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar and white sugar. Using a wooden spoon, press the butter into the sugar until mixture is smooth and combined.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and stir well, then slowly stir in the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, and either bake immediately, or allow to chill 30 minutes in the fridge if you have time.
  • Place 12 slightly rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto each prepared baking sheet. About 1/2 inch apart. Press lightly on each dough circle to flatten the dough slightly. If using M&M's, press a few on top of each dough circle.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes or until just golden brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool another 2 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool
  • You can either bake any extra dough you have in the same manner, or refrigerate dough tightly covered for 3 days, or form cookie dough balls and freeze for up to 3 months.
