Vintage Cookies

 I hope you don't mind another cookie recipe but these really did taste too good not to share. Deliciously soft and chewy with just the right amount of crunch...perfection! (Dan had a little fun stacking up the cookies, before I was allowed to eat them, so I promised I would include his photo!)

makes 18-20
225g plain flour
150g butter, softened
1/4 tsp of salt
80g light brown muscovado sugar
1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
80g granulated sugar (normal every day sugar)
 200g chocolate chips (whichever flavour you fancy)
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Line two baking trays with grease proof paper and preheat your oven to 190C.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. 
  3. Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into the mixture and mix together with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Lastly add the chocolate chips and mix together again with a wooden spoon. Your mixture should look like the second picture at this stage.
  5. Place small balls of the cookie dough on the baking trays spaced well apart as they will spread considerably during baking. I like to use a teaspoon to get similar sized cookies. 
  6. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until light brown round the edges and soft in the middle.
  7. Remove from the oven, leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up then move to a wire cooling rack.
This recipe is really simple yet utterly yummy; it has quickly become my go to cookie recipe. Yep even better than my Millie's cookie recipe! No matter how many I bake they never last more than a day so if you do bake these prepare for some very moreish cookies.  

What would you like me to bake next on here? I promise I will leave the cookie recipes alone for a while, I am just a little bit of a cookie monster!

  12. Yum! I love baking cookies, they always turn out pretty good - and are just so satisfying - I dont feel as bad eating them compared to cake! I love doing white chocolate chunks in them as well! I love reading about tray bakes as I feel like those are pretty simple too! xx
