Road Trip Cookies

These are now called Road Trip Cookies because they are quick to make, and taste great. Even when they've been sitting in the hot Australian heat all day, they're still good (maybe better). Perfect for those long car trips! They still retain their crunch, while the heat keeps the chocolate chips slightly melted.

You Will Need...
At room temperature, softened slightly
You want to use cold eggs straight from the fridge
I used Margaret River Chocolate Factory Chocolate Chips.
I recommend them. They're like little bites of heaven.
(Any chocolate you have will be fine!)

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius, and line a cookie tray with bakign paper.
Beat the butter and brown sugar in your mixer until combined.

Add the eggs and vanilla essence and mix until creamy. (It's ok if it looks curdled)
Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined. (Try to not over mix, because that will make the cookies tough.)Stir in the chocolate chips.Scoop out tablespoons of mixture, and plop onto a cookie tray lined with baking paper.Cook for approximately 15 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned and the centres are a golden colour.
Let cool on the tray, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.These are amazing when eaten straight from the oven.You could even place them in individual bags for the road trip.


  1. These really look amazing-are they the crispy type if u bake 'em a little longer?

  2. Hi Vanillastrawberryspringfields.
    I made these again the other day, and left them in slightly longer to test if they would be crispier.
    They didn't really get much crispier..
    You might want to try a different recipe if you like crispy cookies.
