Every now and then, I get a craving for a delicious, sweet and chocolatey choc chip cookie. It has to be slightly chewy and with a good amount of chocolate chips in it.
Yesterday, I pulled out my Kitchenaid mixer in the morning and whipped up these cookies. The recipe makes about 36 cookies, maybe a little less, depending on how big you make them.
You will need:
- 250g butter softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 & 1/4 cup plain flour
- 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
- 375g chocolate chips, your choice of dark or milk or a combo!
- preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius and prepare oven trays.
- beat butter, vanilla and sugars with an electric mixer, you are wanting to cream them together. When they get going, add the egg and mix until light and fluffy.
- Transfer sugar mixtures to a larger bowl and sift in the flour and bicarb soda. Do this in 2 batches, working one cup in at a time with a wooden spoon. The mixture will be quite stiff so you will be giving your arm a work out!
- Add the choc chips and mix well.
- Roll out tablespoons of the mixture into balls in your hand and place about 5cm apart on trays. The cookies will spread! Bake for about 15 minutes.
- Carefully cool cookies on trays. They will be golden around the edge and still a little soft in the middle.
- Store in an airtight container, however, they won't last long!
