A brilliant basic cookie recipe, with a twist of summertime fun for little hands to make!


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C (fan)/350°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add the flour and chocolate chips, stir well before using your hands to bring the mix together to form a dough.
  4. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Roll the dough to approximately 1 cm thick and using a 6cm round cutter cut 10 cookies re-rolling the dough if necessary.
  5. Shape each cookie into a flip flop shape by flattening 2 sides of the round.

  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the tray.
  9. To decorate, pipe a ‘V’ at the end of each cookie and decorate to create your flip flop!

Chefs Tip

This is a great base cookie recipe. Use it to create different shapes using different cookie cutters. Create a new flavour combination by swapping the vanilla extract for orange flavouring and use dark chocolate chips.
