Ch-Ch-Chocolate Ch-Ch-Chips

Something happened in my kitchen on Sunday.

Cookiefest 2011.

1 cup salted butter
1 vanilla pod/ 2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
12oz plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips/chopped dark chocolate

It was hot, messy and pretty sweet.

  • Preheat oven to gas mark 5
  • Cream butter and sugar until light in colour very fluffy (about 5 mins)
  • Add eggs and the contents of the vanilla pod/extract
  • Beat for 2 minutes
  • Add baking powder, soda, salt and flour
  • Mix to incorporate, you will have a sticky dough/batter
  • Fold in chocolate chips
  • Spoon 2 tbsp ball of dough per cookie on to a buttered parchment lined baking sheet 
  • Not in your mouth....

  • Leave sufficient space around each cookie as they will flatten out in the oven
  • Bake for 12-14 mins until the edges lightly brown
Cookies should be soft in the middle when warm and will harden over 3 days but keep for like a week if your boyfriend and sister don't eat them all first.

Now....Milk. :)
