How to make:

  • Put the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined.
  • In a small mixing bowl mix together the flour, fine salt and bicarbonate of soda. Beat this into the butter, sugar and egg mixture to form a dough. Stir in the chocolate using a wooden spoon until evenly distributed.
  • Roll the dough into 12 equal balls using your hands, then put on a plate and chill for 1 hour 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Space out the cookie balls on the baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes; they should still feel slightly soft to the touch once baked, but they’ll firm up once cooled. Cool completely on the baking sheet, then scatter with sea salt flakes to serve, if you like.
