Tanya’s cookies


I saw these cookies being made in a lot of videos. They look delicious and I want to see if I can bake them too. The recipe for the cookies comes from Tanya Burr. She is a vlogger on youtube. She grew up in Norwich. She started Youtube in 2009. A lot of other vloggers have also made these cookies.

The ingredients:

200g butter
300g caster sugar
1 Large egg (or two smaller ones)
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
a little dash of milk
a bar of milk chocolate
a bar of white chocolate

You can use every kind of chocolate but I don’t really like dark chocolate. As you probably can tell from the ingredients these cookies are chocolate cookies. I absolutely love chocolate cookies.

Heat up you oven to 200 degrees Celsius. That is what Tanya’s recipe says but my oven gets too hot too quickly so I put my oven on 190 degrees Celsius.

Cream together you butter and sugar.

Crack in your egg.

Stir in the self-raising flour and the cocoa powder.

Add a sash of milk if your mixture is looking dry. mine looked a bit dry. After I did all of this my mixture looked like this:


Break up all of your chocolate and throw it in. You can use your hand to put the chocolate in. I first put the chocolate in with a spoon and when I was making the cookies dough balls I made sure that in every ball was a least one piece of chocolate.

Line 2 trays with baking paper. The cookies will spread in the oven so don’t place them close together.

Pick up a 10 small handfuls of cookies dough and place them onto your trays. DSC00032

Pop them into the oven for 11 minutes. When you get them out they will not look cooked. This is important to know because it very tempting to leave them in for longer and them they’ll be hard and overcooked once they are cool. Just take your cookies out after 11 minutes and leave them to cool for about 30 minutes.

My cookies turned out great. I am very happy that it work because I had a history of leaving my cookies too long in the oven and then they would be overcooked once they were cooled down.



I loved to make and eat these cookies. You can keep them for two days after that the cookies become a bit dry. The cookies are tastiest the day you made them. The chocolate will still be melted.
