NOT SOMETHING SIMILAR to my usual posts on here clearly, but I had to share my take on this amazing recipe I found for cookies. These cookies I promise will be chewy, large and extremely chocolatey. With them left out, they won't last long, I promise!
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
170g melted unsalted butter
350g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
100g caster sugar
200g soft brown sugar
For the chocolate I recommend using 175g milk chocolate and 150g white chocolate. Of the milk chocolate I usually do half terry's chocolate orange (sounds unusual but trust me, it comes out delicious and different) and then split the other half between milk chocolate chips from the cooking aisle and cadbury chocolate. The chocolate orange and milk chocolate bar should be chopped into small chunks and a few larger chunks for a nice surprise. The white chocolate I like to use a chopped up selection of giant buttons and part of a rich, vanilla-y white chocolate bar.
1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C
2. I combine the dry ingredients into a bowl and then mix them together
3. Whisk the eggs together with a fork and add the vanilla extract, before putting this mix with the melted butter all into the bowl with the dry ingredients
4. Whisk together thoroughly- easier with an electric whisk to make sure there are no lumps of brown sugar
5. This should be a moist consistency but should still hold together. Then add the chocolate chips and mix in until all is covered. It will seem like you are adding a lot of chocolate chips but trust me, it works
6. Cover a baking tray with baking (or greaseproof) paper and drop two tablespoons of mixture onto the middle of half of the tray. Each tray will hold about two cookies. Keep them far apart from each other as they spread out a lot during cooking and also remember to not spread them yourself when you drop the mixture onto the tray; they will spread out themselves when they are in the oven so just drop the mixture and leave it
7. Cook for 15 minutes on the top shelf of the oven and when you take them out, leave them for 5 minutes on the tray before transferring them onto a wire cooling rack, otherwise they will break. When just taken out of the oven they will be still liquid-y, so do not be alarmed and leave them to set
I hope you all enjoy this recipe, it really works well every time, and I promise when you use this once you will never try any other recipe. Good luck and enjoy!
Let me know in the comments if you've tried this recipe or if you're going to try this any time soon.
