A Cookie Recipe for Beginners

Everybody loves cookies – whether they’re chocolate chip, double chocolate or even raisin-filled. Cookies are surprisingly easy to make, and if you’re a novice that fancies cooking up your own batch, why not follow Destiny Foods’ basic cookie recipe for beginners?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 225g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 275g plain flour
  • Ground spices


Preheat your oven to 180C

Cream your butter in a bowl until it is creamy and add the sugar, beating until the mixture is fluffy and pale

Sift the spices and flour and bring the mixture together to form a dough

Roll the dough into small balls and put them on a baking tray. Flatten the balls slightly with the back of a spoon and bake in the oven for 15 minutes

Leave on a wire rack to cool before eating

And it’s as easy as that! Once you’ve mastered the art of the basic cookie, why not add chocolate chips, dried fruit, or even a mixture of the two?
