Choc chip and cookie cutters aren't a good mix. You can do it, but it makes them very difficult to cut out. For cutter cookies;
170 g butter, softened 200 g white sugar 2 eggs a couple of drops vanilla extract 300 g plain flour pinch of salt
If you have a food processor, start with the sugar and butter, then add the eggs, then the vanilla essence, then the flour and salt. Blitz it each time, then at the end until it's all combined. If you find it's not sticking together, add a tiny bit of water, if it's too sticky and gooey, add a bit more flour. When it looks like dough wrap it in cling film, or put it in an air tight tub and chill it for 1 hour. This will make it much easier to roll out. Then roll it out, dusting with flour as needed, and go crazy with the cutters.
Grease a tray, lay the shapes on that, preheat oven to 200 (180 fan) and cook for about 8 minutes, less if you rolled them out thinly.
They are easy to decorate, which might make up for the lack of choc chips. Or you could mix in some chocolate flake sprinkle things if you have any. My DD usually likes painting them with icing and pouring all the hundreds and thousands on them!
<disclaimer, this isn't actually anything to do with Millies Cookies, it's just a recipe for that style of cookie>
This makes about 48 cookies, but it's easily halved. Or you can make it all, and freeze half. If freezing I usually roll it into a sausage and wrap it well in clingfilm so it's quick to defrost.
9oz Brown sugar 9oz White sugar 10oz Margerine 2 eggs 12oz choc chips (I usually 3 bags, 1 white, 1 milk, 1 dark) 1 tsp vanilla essence 1/2 tsp bicab 1/2 tsp salt 18 oz plain flour
Cream marg and sugar together. Add eggs, vanilla ess and choc chips and mix well. Mix flour, bicarb and salt together, then add to wet ingredients. Mix well until it becomes a thick, sticky cookie dough. Using a couple of dessert spoons, scoop golf ball sized blobs onto a greased baking tray, making sure to leave a couple of inches between as they will spread when cooking. Flatten the blobs slightly and cook for 12 mins at 180 fan assisted, or 12-14 mins at 190/200. Let them cool a little before taking them off the trays otherwise they will fall apart, andyouwillburnyourtonguetryingtoeatthepieces.
