Apparently I’m on a basic recipes kick at the moment- I can’t believe I haven’t made chocolate chip cookies in about two years. This recipe yields a delicious buttery cookie that’s crispy around the edges but soft in the middle. Yum.
- 125g butter
- 100g light brown sugar
- 75g sugar
- 1tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 225g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Selection of chocolate chips. I used about 150g M&Ms and I wished I had added about 100g of really dark chocolate and some nuts too.
Makes 12 large cookies. Double up for twice the fun.
Using a wooden spoon or a mixer, cream together the butter and sugars.
Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
Sift in the dry ingredients in two batches and mix until you have a smooth, thick batter.
