Ingredients

Pieces:-12+
125 g butter (soft)
100 g light brown sugar
125 g caster sugar
egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
225 g self-raising flour
Β½ tsp salt
125 g chocolate chips

Utensils

  • whisk
  • bowl
  • sieve
  • wooden spoon
  • baking sheet
  • baking tin
  • spatula
  • wire rack
  • Step 1/8

    Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4

  • Step 2/8

    • 125 g butter (soft)
    • 100 g light brown sugar
    • 125 g caster sugar
    • whisk
    • bowl

    Cream the softened butter and combined sugars with an electric whisk.

  • Step 3/8

    • 225 g self-raising flour
    • Β½ tsp salt
    • sieve

    Mix the salt into the flour and sift into the creamed butter. Whisk until the mixture is consistent.

  • Step 4/8

    • 125 g chocolate chips

    Add the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed. Put the whisk aside and use your hands.

  • Step 5/8

    • egg
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • wooden spoon

    Beat the egg in a separate bowl and stir in the vanilla extract. Add to the dry ingredients and stir through with a wooden spoon to form a single cookie dough ball.

  • Step 6/8

    • baking sheet
    • baking tin

    Tear off a chunk of dough, roll into a ball about 2 inches in diameter and flatten between your hands. Place a few on a baking tin covered with ungreased baking paper, spaced enough to allow each to double in size.

  • Step 7/8

    • spatula
    • wire rack

    Pop in the oven for ten minutes. When they come out, give one a very light poke - the outside will feel baked enough to be crunchy but the gooey inside will collapse as if molten. Leave them to harden for a five minutes then use a spatula to move them to a cooling rack.

  • Step 8/8

    Try a cookie. Put a few more chunks of dough on the baking sheet which should have cooled by now and adjust the time to get the cookies just how you want them.
