  • 250g all-purpose flour
  • 2g baking soda
  • 170g unsalted butter, melted
  • 220g packed brown sugar
  • 100g white sugar
  • 15ml vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 335g chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt


    1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
    2. Sift the flour and baking soda into a bowl, then add the salt and set aside.
    3. In a bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar thoroughly. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Then mix in the reserved sifted ingredients until mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.
    4. Pour 1/4 of the cookie dough at a time onto the prepared greased sheets. The cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
    5. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

This recipe was okay, I've tried many recipes trying to find the right one and this one is about 5th at the moment ( by many I mean many ). Most of the comments are negative and are saying there is too much sugar I partially agree as they do turn out rather sweet so if I use this recipe in future I will do less. However the cookies turned out nice and soft and lovely I would recommend to people who have a sweet tooth

These cookies are fabulous! Followed it all exactly, used the softer brown sugar; seemed to work brill.

don't listen to the other comments! - go for it

AWFUL recipe! Way too much sugar and butter! I couldn't even finish 1 i have to throw all of them away...

AWFUL recipe!!! The cookies are way too sickly, really hard to eat! TOO MUCH SUGAR!!! Such a waste of products........

This recipe is awful I really wish I had read the comments before making them, there is far to much brown sugar next time I will stick to my normal cookie recipe

Way, way too much sugar.. i added less and there was still way too much sugar! I was going to give them away but didn't want to inflict them on anyone else!

EliNPops's picture

I really wish I had read your comment before making these coz you are so right the amount of sugar is crazy they ended up awful, all that chocolate that could of been used in another recipe wasted on this awful recipe

Perfect cookies! I made these exactly as per the recipe (even though I read through in the comments that lots of people thought there was too much sugar!) and they came out exactly as I like them. A little bit like the gooey cookies you can get in Pizza Hut. Delish!

Good consistency but way too much sugar, impossible to eat. Had to bin them all, apart from that nothing wrong

These cookies are the best I have made; truly delicious. My daughter and I made 4 batches because the mixture comes up to quite a lot. The second batch was overdone a bit but still tasty. I saved some of the mixture and added raisins and sultanas with spice yum yum. Will be making these again.

I used 180g caster sugar and 40g light muscovado for the sugar instead of the specified amount as it seemed very high.

I also used dark, milk and white chocolate, yum!

They turned out lovely, just the right consistency.

"Pour" 1/4 of the cookie dough at a time???

Smellensalter's picture

Definitely too much sugar - turned out to be more like toffee than cookies!

Great recipe! It turned out excellent except next time I will reduce the sugar amount as the chocolate provides sufficient sweetness.

This recipe made great cookies. My daughter and I enjoyed making them and enjoyed eating them even more

Made these today with my 4 year old, they turned out great! I decided to only add 100g of chocolate chips which, for us, is a perfect amount :)

I loved these cookies , really good texture but I found them far too sugary :-/ next time I'll be making them with less sugar . I used white and milk choc chips and got about 24 decent sized cookies with one batch of cookie dough :-) kids are happy as am I lol

lovely cookies,better than bakers. 2g of soda is half a teaspoon.I also put less choc in and added orange rind (3).I put them straight onto baking paper,they do spread out alot,and let them cool on paper before putting onto rack or they will fall apart.Loved at work!!!

Best cookie recipe I've ever tried and I've tried dozens!


Questions (8)

sapodilla's picture

The white sugar in this recipe is it caster or granulated sugar?


PTanner's picture

Can be either, tho caster is probably better

sarahsjmmoore's picture

What's 'all purpose' flour and 'packed' brown sugar?!

PTanner's picture

I used self-raising but it means u can use plain or self-raising. I just used normal sugar and it was fine.

sapodilla's picture

Hi Sarah

All purpose flour is just plain flour not self-raising flour and packed brown sugar is just the kind of finely ground brown sugar used in dark Christmas cakes and puddings. Hope this helps


Ziya's Mum's picture

Why must the brown sugar be "packed" if you're measuring it by weight? Surely it weighs the same whether it's packed or not?

Phoebeeee's picture

Using these measurements approximately how many cookies will this make ?

PTanner's picture

Depends how big you want them but I managed to make about 30 smallish ones!

PTanner's picture

Great recipe, when I first made it they went huge and flat. To avoid this roll the mixture into tubes of greaseproof paper and put in the fridge (at least 4 hours) or freezer (at least 2 hours)!
This solved my problem straight away!
Also, if u want relatively soft cookies, take them out when you think they are slightly undervalued as they firm up as they cool.
