Thank you cookies

It’s been an amazing couple of days for The Glen House blog; As of the weekend I now have over 100 followers! I’m stunned every single time someone chooses to follow my humble little blog.


As of yesterday I’d received over 500 likes, which is unbelievable!  All this is a few short months since I introduced the world to my beautiful little home.


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To celebrate I’m sharing my easy peasy chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you’re in a hurry and you need a snack or mini gift, these chocolate chip cookies are perfect!

250g butter
100g soft brown sugar
2 egg (beaten)
300g self-raising flour
250g milk chocolate chips or mini smarties


Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4), or turn the Rayburn off! Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.


Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. This is really important, the lighter the mix at this stage (because you’ve creamed it properly), the lighter the cookie will be. Beat the egg, sift in the flour, and then add the chocolate pieces and mix thoroughly. Dollop teaspoonfuls of the mixture, slightly apart, on the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown.


Leave the cookies on a baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer onto a wire rack and leave to cool.


Nom nom nom…. Time to start working on finding the next 100 followers and keeping the rest of you with me on my journey to collect the next 500 likes!
