  • 100 gr butter
  • 175 gr sugar
  • 1 eggs
  • a pinch of salt
  • a few drops of vanilla essence
  • 200 gr flour
  • 4 gr baking powder 
  • 100 g chocolate chips


1. Beat the butter at room temperature with the sugar until pale, add the vanilla essence, a pinch of salt and the egg, mix well.  Sift the flour with the Royal yeast and incorporate it into the previous shake.  Finally add the chocolate chips.  Form a tender dough ball without rubbing it too much.  Let rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.


2. Roll out the dough half a centimeter thick, cut circles and put them on a greased baking sheet.  

Bake at 190º C for approximately 10 minutes.  Tips (advice): You will realize that they are ready when the edges of the cookies begin to look slightly golden.  It is important not to wait for them to take color on top, otherwise they would be very hard when they cool down.

3. It is important to let the dough rest in the fridge so that when cooking it maintains its shape.  To stretch the dough we can use a little flour on the counter, but be careful, without abusing it, because otherwise the cookies would be like stones.

4. You can use both chocolate chips, which are available in almost any supermarket, but you can also chop up chocolate bars.
