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.

Brilliant recipe! If you want perfect cookies in 30 minutes, this is the recipe. It's so much easier than my other recipes (I'll probably have everything in already too) and yet the cookies are nicer!

These have just come out of the oven and I can tell they're not going to last long! Very quick and easy to make too.

Just baked these, glad I did, lovely thick cookies with a chewy centre and crisp outer shell.
I used soft dark brown sugar, yummy!

Cookies are amazing... I took them to a house warming and everyone thought they were shop bought. I haven't tried the exact recipe above as I've made them into:
-Orange and Chocolate Chip (2 oranges zested and 100g chocolate chips)
-Banana and Chocolate Chip (100g banana chips and 100g chocolate chips)
Will be trying out 'Cranberry and White Chocolate' and 'Coconut and Lime' later today! Yum!

Traditional cookies can be tricky to get right - but this recipe is great and totally foolproof. The cookies looked perfect and tasted delicious - and the raw dough is fab too! Would be great stirred into a bit of icecream for a DIY Ben and Jerry's cookie dough ice cream! Highly recommend this recipe.

Made these with white chocolate. They tasted amazing, going to make them again for my family when they visit during Christmas. Very easy to make, and my son enjoyed helping me make them.

Easy, very easy in fact.
Made them with my toddler and he loves the baking and eating. If you take them out at just the right time they are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside-perfect.
One thing tho!...next time i make them i will reduce the sugar a tad-they are rather sweet for my liking.

Really quick and easy recipe. I used strong bread flour because I'd run out of plain- gave a really great tasting cookie
