Best recipe for chocolate chip cookies I've come across - the brown sugar definitely makes a difference! I usually just use a whole block of Whittakers dairy milk in my batches.

Hi Francesca, yes you sure can! Suggest adding ½- ¾ cup of raisins :)

Hmmm.....baked for 22 mins at 160 fan forced but they didn't brown up well and stayed quite soft as opposed to crispy, but disappointed. Maybe I did something wrong? I did use flora buttery instead of butter, could that be it?

Hi Peta, thanks for your query. Flora butter will give a different texture so we would recommend using butter for best results. You may also want to increase oven temperature to 180 degrees. Hope this helps.

How will they turn out without the egg please??

Reply from The Food in a Minute team

Hi Leah,

Thank you for your query and apologies for the delayed response. We haven’t tested them without egg as the mixture would be drier and the biscuits would not be as tender. But they probably would work without the egg, the texture would be different and you may need to add a little milk to make the dough soft enough to roll.

Hope this helps!
