Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie?

These do not need chilling prior to cooking so can be made really quickly.

This recipe will make about 24 good sized cookies.

You Will Need:

  • 200g Butter
  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Egg
  • 350g Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 150g Dark Chocolate Chips or Chunks (I use chocolate of 54.5% cocoa solids)

Method:

  • Grease two baking sheets or more if you have them.
  • Pre heat the oven to 180degrees C.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla essence and the egg and mix until well incorporated.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together and add this with the dark chocolate and fold through thoroughly, I like to get my hands in at this point.
  • This will come together to form a soft dough.
  • Divide into 24 balls all about the size of a golf ball.
  • Arrange them on your prepared baking sheet. Allowing plenty of room for spreading, I usually put six on a sheet at a time.
  • Bake for 10-13mins. You may need to turn the tray to achieve an even bake.
  • The longer you bake them for the harder and crispier they will become.
  • Allow to cool on the sheet for a couple of minutes and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
  • Repeat until all the cookies are baked.
