If you can’t get enough of these cookies then find our giant skillet creation or go straight to our master recipe with the best chocolate chip cookies, ever.

Ingredients

  • 100g softened unsalted butter
  • 100g soft light brown sugar
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 165g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Small chocolate chunks

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/gas 3½ . Use an electric mixer to cream together the butter with both the sugars. Slowly beat in the egg and vanilla bean paste, then beat in the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda until combined and smooth.
  2. Divide the mixture evenly into 16 balls, then put them on a couple of large baking sheets at 5-6cm intervals so they have room to spread. Flatten the balls slightly, then push in small chocolate chunks (as many as you fancy).
  3. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes until the cookies are golden around the edge and the chocolate chunks have melted. Serve just cooled with a glass of ice-cold milk.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      No – you don’t have to use cooking chocolate. Any chocolate you fancy. We used Green & Blacks milk chocolate.

    1. Hi Penny,
      You should be able to find vanilla bean paste in most supermarkets but if not you can buy it online from Lakeland. We recommend Nielsen Massey.
      Hope that helps

  1. I love this recipe because it’s so easy and delicious that I will (and do) literally make them at 10 o’clock at night in my pyjamas. Just ’cause I have a craving for chocolate. Yum.
