Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from BBC Good Food
You will need:
250g of plain / all purpose flour
2g baking soda/ bicarbonate of soda
170g unsalted butter, melted
150g light Muscovado sugar
130g caster sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 egg yolk
300g chocolate chips ( I used half white and half milk chocolate)
Preheat your oven to 165c / 325f . Sieve the flour and the baking soda in a large bowl. Melt the butter and mix in the sugars. Add in the vanilla and eggs and beat until well mixed. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and finally stir in the chocolate chips, leaving you with a yummy cookie dough.
Line your baking trays with grease proof paper. Using the palms of your hands, roll the dough into golf size balls, leaving 2-3 inch gap between each ball. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden on the outside and slightly pudgy in the middle. Leave to cool slightly before putting on a wire rack.
These cookies were absolutely delicious and each one was of a decent size. Everyone said how chewy they were and tasted like they were from Millie's cookie shop. Hopefully you will give this recipe a try, it is definitely a keeper for me and will be going in my recipe book!
