We use this cookie dough recipe as a base for our chocolate torte. And for our slutty brownie. And anything else that it might go with! It’s also so tasty and more-ish that it might actually never make it into another brownie, cake or torte!

  • ½ cup butter at room temperature

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup caster sugar

  • 1 x egg

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ¼ cups plain flour

  • 1 x cup of chocolate chips


Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add everything else and mix until just combined.

Chill in fridge until ready to use.

It’s quite squishy, so I find the easiest way to use it is to more or less squish it in to whatever tin I’m using and level it as best I can with the back of a spoon.

Enjoy, or use the cookie dough as a base for one of our other tasty recipes!
