Ah, Christmas Eve.

Don’t know about you but it’s my most favourite day of the year; the hope, the anticipation and the build up.

The excitement and energy of today is something worth waiting an entire year for.

Why not add a very special memory for the day and make some Easy, Quick Cookies for Santa

Here’s a list of ingredients you should already have in your cupboard:

  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 caster sugar (or white sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


Preparation:15min    Cook:12min    Ready in:27min

Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave) and set aside to cool slightly.

Pour butter into a large bowl and stir in brown sugar and caster sugar until smooth and sugar is mostly dissolved.

Lightly beat the egg with a whisk or fork and stir into the sugar mixture along with the vanilla.

Sift flours and baking powder together into a small bowl and then gradually mix into sugar mixture until combined.

Stir through chocolate chips.

Drop rounded tablespoons of the cookie mixture onto lined baking trays.

Bake for 12 minutes or until golden then remove from oven and allow to cool on trays for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
