Up until recently, I’ve always shyed away from cracking a yummy Chocolate chip cookie. Then about a month th ago, I finally got to a place where I was happy with the results.
- 150g salted butter at room temperature
- 80g light brown sugar and 80g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 225g plain flour
- 200g chopped chocolate. I usually use a big bag of chocolate buttons or big bar of chocolate instead of buying chocolate chips as it works out cheaper.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Beat the two sugars and butter together for a few minutes until creamy.
- Add in your egg and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.
- Mix the flour and bicarbonate of soda together and add to the mixture. Fold a little in at a time until mixed well.
- Chop up your chocolate into chips and add to the mixture
- Using a teaspoon, place cookies onto a lined baking tray and bake for around ten minutes. What you are looking for is a golden brown colour.
- Let them cool on the tray for five minutes before placing them on cooling rack.
This recipe is a great base for adding in extra chocolate. I’ve experimented with mars bars, crunchies and milky way bars but you could pretty much add any bar you’d like to the mix. My favourite one of the above is the crunchie. It makes the cookie extra chewy.
This batch are freshly made with some m and m’s for the school bake sale today. Let me know if you make these or have a cookie recipe you love
