Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

~ Posted on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at 12:50 AM ~

After mulling for a while and getting bored with muffins, roast chicken wings and cheesesticks, I decided to take the leap and do something new... cookies!

Was chatting on MSN with a fellow SAHM bloggy friend (Yes, Catheryn, YOU!) when she told me there are premixes for cookies and she tried it long ago. Some time back while grocery shopping, I saw it! Cookies premix! I immediately read the instructions and ingredients required and decided to take the leap on Tuesday 5th Oct.Needless to say, my first attempt at baking the cookies are disastrous!

I attempted this again on 26th October 2010 and yes!

Finally a success!!

Before I forget, I would like to thank this white and gray stray cat (picture on the left) for distracting and keeping my boy busy enough to let mummy attempt to bake this cookies again!

So without further ado, here goes:



* About 5 minutes to mix & knead dough
* 10 minutes for baking process 

Ingredients / Tool Required:

* Nona cookie premix (400g)
* 1 egg (at room temperature)
* 150g butter (melted)

* Chocolate chips

* A bowl to mix ingredients in
* Kitchen scale
* Metal cup to store melted butter
* Spatula
* Baking sheet & paper

(*Note: The above measurements are from the premix instructions.
I actually halved the amount to minimise wastage  :P
hence there were 2 attempts for this recipe)

What to Do?

Add premix, add in melted butter Add in egg mixture The mixture after adding choc chips

* Mix to a smooth dough, add in chocolate chips.
* Roll the dough into small balls and place on the baking sheets/tray, spaced slightly apart.
* Flatten each balls slightly.


* Set oven to 200℃ and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.

5th Oct 2010: "Yikes...this is a disaster!! It looks more like chocolate cookies... I should've stayed around and keep an eye on the baking process... it's kinda hard on the outside and just nice inside. Tastewise, not too sweet."
26th Oct 2010:"Yes! This is more like it! Delicious!"
See pictures below... btw, he had 3 cookies on the day itself!
5th Oct 2010: "You mean this is not chocolate cookies?!" This was followed by jokes while grocery shopping at night about how we could use my cookies as a ninja weapons etc etc... -_-
26th Oct 2010:"Mmm... so much better!"
5th Oct 2010: "Very hard to bite. Don't give Ben eat."
26th Oct 2010:"Yes! This is more like it! Delicious!"

So there you go.... my CHOCHOLATE CHIP BUTTER COOKIES disaster & success attempts!

Overall, I'm happy with the 2nd attempt! I failed in the 1st attempt as I didn't stay around and keep an eye on the baking process. I realised the instructions stated to bake for 15 minutes and I set it at 20 minutes and went out to the porch to play with Ben and forgot about keeping an eye on the cookies. Yikes! With the experience from the 2nd attempt, I felt much more confident and am going to attempt few more times before I stop relying on premix for cookies..

Hi jenny,
Your chocolate cookies looked so yummy... I bet your baby Ben will so happy and enjoy those cookies.

Happy Thursday, my dear friend!

Catheryn  @ Pink Bibs

Yaay!! Is that Nona cookie premix?  I used that before and it was a disaster for me.  Not sure what happened.  Smile

But good effort!  My sis is already complaining they are getting muffins too often! LOL!

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hi Nensa!
Yes, Ben enjoys the cookies very much! Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely weekend coming up! Take care ok?

Hey Catheryn,
Yes, yes, the Nona cookie premix. Didn't you read the 2nd paragraph where I mentioned your name? My 1st attempt also failed, cos never keep an eye on the baking, go out to porch and play with Ben Tong Luckily only use half, so the other half was used on the 2nd attempt which was thankfully a success! Smile

Catheryn  @ Pink Bibs


Yes yes.. saw my name... having a sick little baby must have made me blur blur lar... aiyo...

Now, I have more confident to give Nona one more chance!  That was my first & last attempt the other day... thought they are no good and never thought of trying again.  

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy


I thought so too! Hope Isabelle is getting better soon! Give it a try again! Just watch out for the baking time. For my 2nd attempt I bake for 11-12 minutes only. But then again, also because my oven is force fan and I always reduce 10C from the original recipe. Just half the ingredients and experiment la!

Catheryn  @ Pink Bibs

Ok. The tips is useful.  Thank you Smile

Don't know what went wrong.  My cookies turn out to be like kuih... soft and lembik, not crunchy as a cookie should be.  

But ok... after your post, Nona deserves another chance.  Smile

Jenny @ I'm a full-time mummy

Hmmm... soft and lembik ar? Not bake long enough? Cos the 1st time I think I baked 20 minutes, its very very very dry and hard. Second time reduced half baking time, just nice.


There's just nothing like a chocolate chip cookie to make your day.  These look delicious.  Just to let you know, I'll be holding a CSN giveaway on my blog next Monday, so be sure to check back then for a chance to enter.


Glad you stuck with it until you got the yummy cookie you wanted! Smile
