Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chips and stir well.
  3. Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.
  4. Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.

Just Fabulous! Gorgeous straight out of the oven but wonderfully....gooey(!) even when cool. A real American style, soft-bake Cookie. Great Recipe!

Really delicious. I put them in the fridge for 10 mins before baking as well, stops them spreading out too much. Also only used about 100g of choc chips which seemed plenty :) Will be my go to recipe for cookies now.

Agree about the amount of chic chips. I used 150g which was more than enough.

This is a great, quick and easy recipe. I switched the vanilla for almond essence and added some nutmeg. So tasty!

These are the best biscuits I've ever made. I didn't have granulated sugar so I made up the whole sugar amount with light muscovado and it gave them such a lovely caramel flavour. Stirred some chopped coconut chocolate into the dough at the end and they were amazing. Might try making the dough chocolatey with some Green & Blacks cocoa powder next time.

Delicious and easy to bake. The perfect treat to take to work or to eat at the theater (don't tell anyone).

Delicious! So easy to make and perfect for little helpers. Amount baked differed slightly from that in recipe as we had to taste test the cookie dough lots before we baked. Very handy to have in the fridge. Will be doing on a regular basis.

They were quick, easy and very nice. Better than the 'Triple Chocolate Cookies' on here, I added some orange zest which really finished off the cookies well. Will definitely make again!

Just delicious. I had mine in the oven for nearer 15 minutes and were still fantastically gooey and moist.
Definitely a recipe for the binder.
