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!)
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
- Line two baking trays with grease proof paper and preheat your oven to 190C.
- Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg.
- Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into the mixture and mix together with a wooden spoon until combined.
- Lastly add the chocolate chips and mix together again with a wooden spoon. Your mixture should look like the second picture at this stage.
- 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.
- Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until light brown round the edges and soft in the middle.
- 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!
