Ingredients

  • 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

Method

    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.

I can definitely see how these cookies could be too sweet, to get around that though I took about 1/4 of the brown sugar out, I thought it was too much when I weighed it out, my mum said it looked too much too, so I'd recommend only 3/4 of the brown sugar recommended. Don't forget you also have a lot of white sugar too. Also if you want them gooey and soft and not crispy I would recommend 13-14 minutes but that depends on your cooker too. I took a little sample from the batch and made 2 cookies just to test, so yes I'd recommended only 13-14 mins because otherwise it's too crispy. Hope this helped. :)

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

Oh and these make a lot of cookies, I expected 14 at most but it made 18 and they're pretty large! Even when I removed the extra sugar!

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

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

Can be either, tho caster is probably better

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

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 Sapodilla

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?

Using these measurements approximately how many cookies will this make ?

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

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.
