Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated: 4 days ago

Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie! My first experience of one was in America it was soft and had lots of chocolate chips in it. The ones you buy in the supermarket here in the UK are usually quite hard in texture. This is my easy go to recipe when you want something with chocolate and quickly!


They are nice and soft with plenty of chocolate chips. I have tried many recipes to get a good chewy cookie and this recipe has been very popular with my boys.

Firstly preheat the oven and line two baking trays with parchment. You will need to do two batches as this recipe makes approximately 12 cookies. I got 3 cookies on each baking tray.


In a stand mixer place the butter, light brown sugar and caster sugar. Cream until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix again.

Next add the flour, baking powder, bica of soda and salt until it forms a soft dough.



Finally add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated throughout the dough.

Form into balls roughly the size of walnuts (45g approx) and place on the baking trays. These cookies do spread a lot so don’t put them too close together. You will need to bake several batches.

Bake for 14 - 16 minutes until they start to brown slightly around the edges. The cookies will be quite puffed up when they come out of the oven so tap the tray on the kitchen bench to deflate.

Finally leave to cool on wire racks and the cookies will set firm.



Ingredients:


100g Unsalted Butter

90g Soft Light Brown Sugar

75g Granulated Sugar

1 Large Egg

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

200g Plain Flour

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

Pinch of salt

100g Chocolate Chips


Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade (160 fan) and line two baking trays with parchment.

  2. In a stand mixer place the butter, light brown sugar and caster sugar. Cream until light and fluffy.

  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix again.

  4. Next add the flour, baking powder, bica of soda and salt until it forms a soft dough.

  5. Finally add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated throughout the dough.

  6. Form into balls roughly the size of walnuts (45g approx) and place on the baking trays. These cookies do spread a lot so don’t put them too close together. You will need to bake several batches.

Sarah’s extra slice.....


Makes approximately 12 cookies - just double the mix if you want to make a larger batch.

You can use dark chocolate chips if you prefer.

Don’t try and move the cookies from the baking parchment until they have cooled and set firm.
