Ingredients

  • 100g brown sugar
  • 125g unsalted block butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 200g chocolate (any kind!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Method

    1. Pre-heat oven to 200oc Place butter and sugar in large bowl and mix well
    2. add the egg and vanilla essence and mix again
    3. sieve in flour and salt to mix and combine well.
    4. Cut the chocolate, but not to finely and add. Mix together then roll balls of mixture to about 2cm by 2cm and place on a baking tray with baking parchment on. Be careful not to put the cookies too close together.
    5. Place in preheated oven for 7-10 minutes. Repeat until all cookies are cooked.
    6. I use different kinds of chocolate and add nuts. For double chocolate cookies simply replace 50g flour with 75g chocolate powder.

Cookies my backside :-P not if you follow the author directions exactly. The dough doesn't spread out. Luckily half way through baking I anticipated it and squashed them with a fork before they were fully cooked.

Edible, quite tasty even. But not what it says on the tin.

Was very disappointed with this recipe. They are nothing like cookies at all. I wish I had read the comments before making them. They rise more in to cakes/scones. Will go back to the Millies cookies recipe on here next time.

Wish I too had read the comments before baking. Left them in a bit too long as I was expecting them to have spread by the time 10mins was up but they were just choc chip dough balls. Second batch has gone in and we flattened them a little beforehand so hopefully... All in all, they taste pretty good but don't be fooled by the title-definitely dough balls and not cookies!

Not what i was expecting. I really should have ready the comments first. These looked like rock buns when they came out of the oven they dont spread out when cooking. Wish i could load a picture to show x

They are tasty, but not what i would call cookies at all.

Wish I had read the comments before making as these are not cookies. The first half didnt look right and hadn't spread out so with the next half I flattened them down before going into the oven, these looked alot more like biscuits but still not quite cookies, never the less still yummy and still fun to make with the kids.

'Cut the chocolate, but not to finely and add.'

Spelled incorrectly, it should be 'too.'

Hey BBC bloggers,

Just wanted to provide you with an honest and to the point review of this delicious dessert!

Although the title of this article may deceive you, as it uses the word "cookie", in fact, we were in for quite a surprise. When Charlotte and I embarked on our baking adventure we were prepared for some delicate, melt-in your mouth, chocolate chip cookies. However, the outcome completely blew us away. When Charlotte reached into the oven to pull out the steaming hot plates of chocolate mounds, what beheld us was something quite peculiar. The only word that immediately came to both our heads was something we never expected to encounter that night.

We looked at each other and immediately knew: these are SCONES,

One word I tell you, scone. Scone scone scone scone scone scone scone.

Charlotte and I have quite an adventurous friendship, and have always loved experimenting in the kitchen. However, this turn of events was even crazier than that time we backpacked on llamas up to Macchu Picchu to see the eighth wonder of the world, all in the nude!!!

Anyway, if you like being deceived, betrayed by those you trusted #BBC, then go ahead. Follow the recipe.

xoxo,

Sconelover69

Followed the recipe exactly and they are delicious. However they didn't spread very much so were quite dumpy biccies rather than flat cookies. Will definitely try this recipe again and perhaps use slightly less flour as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for the recipe :-)

This recipe is very worth while trying, produces amazing cookies, but I suggest not using a electronic mixer, it makes the mixture a bit to sticky, but still made lovely cookies, thank you very much for a brilliant recipe!!!

The...( well, you couldn't really call them cookies, but anyway) cookies I came out with were very delicious, although I was about 20 grams down on butter and I had to add water because I was finding the mix very dry. I measured them up 2 cm and I gave them 10 minutes in the oven, because they weren't spreading, so unfortunately I came out with some macaroon bases with chocolate chips in. Even so, they were LOVELY. I'd recomend this bake.

I also made these with a 4 year olld - really easy and delicious. Didn't spread as much as I thought they would though - I may have put too much flour in as we were a bit slap dash with measuring...
