Chocolate Chip Star Cookies

This has been my favourate cookie recipe all time. It's easy, fun and quick. I bake them all in about 20 mins flat.


    150g butter, at room temperature
    150g (3/4 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    225g (1 1/2 cups) self-raising flour
    2 tbs cocoa powder
    90g (1/2 cup) finely chopped a good-quality dark chocolate
    120g (3/4 cup) finely chopped good- quality white chocolate
    50g (1/3 cup) dark Choc Bits
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Beat the butter and brown sugar in a medium mixing bowl with electric beaters until pale and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla essence and beat until just combined.
  4. Sift together the self-raising flour and cocoa. Fold the sifted flour mixture, chopped dark chocolate and chopped white chocolate , through the butter mixture with a wooden : spoon and then bring the dough together with your hands.
  5. Roll out half the dough on a lightly floured work surface with a lightly floured rolling pin to about l cm thick. Cut the 1 dough with cookie cutters of your choice and place onto the prepared baking trays about 3cm apart. Evenly press half the Choc Bits into the cookies.
  6. Bake cookies in the preheated oven for e 15-20 minutes or until crisp and cooked through. Remove from the oven and stand on the baking trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Repeat :with the remaining biscuit dough and Choc Bits. Store in an airtight container.
