Chocolate Chip Cookies

Published: August 14th, 2018

Who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie. Personally I think the best are those that have a mass of chocolate and large chunks too. This is my go-to recipe and it's perfect every time.

You can try all sorts of options for the choc chips - I often buy a whole Cadbury block and just roughly break it up, I've used M&M's and a mixture of dark and white chocolate.  Go crazy!

You'll need:

  • 150g unsalted butter

  • 125g soft light brown sugar

  • 100g caster sugar

  • 2tsp vanilla

  • 1 egg, fridge cold

  • 1 egg yolk, fridge cold

  • 300g flour

  • 1/2tsp bicarb

  • 320g choc chips

Then you:

  1. Preheat oven to 170, line baking sheet

  2. Melb the butter and let it cool a bit.

  3. Put the brown and white sugars into mixer bowl, pour the butter over them and beat together.

  4. Beat in the vanilla, egg and yolk until mixture is light and creamy.

  5. Slowly mix in the flour and bicarb until just blended, fold in choc chips.

  6. Scoop the dough using an ice-cream scoop and layout on baking sheet - allow space between.

  7. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes in the oven until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
