What could be better than freshly baked cookies? A glass of milk to wash them down!


  • 175 g softened butter
  • 175 g light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 350 g plain flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 110 g mixed chocolate chips
  • 110 g mixed nuts (pistachio, walnuts, shelled hazelnuts, pine nuts etc)


  1. Cream the butter and sugar with the vanilla extract for 4-5 minutes in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in the eggs and beat for a few minutes.
  3. Sieve the flour with the baking powder and the salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the mixed nuts and the chocolate chips.
  5. Add the sifted flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture and beat slowly until the mixture comes together.
  6. Add in the chocolate chips and mixed nuts and beat until combined.
  7. Break some of the dough into small balls and place on a lined baking tray.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes in a preheated oven 180°C (350°F/Gas Mark 4).
  9. Allow to cool down and serve.

Note: This mixture freezes quite successfully. To freeze, roll it into long thick coils and then you can cut the mixture easier.
