  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 200g plain chocolate chip or chunks

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190C/fan170C/gas 5. Line two baking sheets with non-stick baking paper.

  2. Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla and egg.

  3. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into the bowl and mix it in with a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chips and stir well.

  4. Use a teaspoon to make small scoops of the mixture, spacing them well apart on the baking trays. This mixture should make about 30 cookies.

  5. Bake for 8–10 mins until they are light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre if you press them.

  6. Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to set and then lift onto a cooling rack.

Ok so these are really yummy but extremely sugary which isn't good for most of us! I've been experimenting with adding less sugar because I think it will be better for my children and me and you'll be inclined to want to eat less. I actually reduced brown sugar down to 20g and white sugar down to 20g and instead of chocolate chips, I used 70% cocoa chocolate cut up. They're still really nice like this, they just won't send your blood sugars rocketing.

WOW, YUMMY, YUMMY Made these today, so easy. I did not have salted butter, so used unsalted (no problem at all) Having read the other reviews about sweetness, I reduced the granulated sugar from 80g to 60, this turned out to be a perfect combination. I used 224g of Cadbury's milk chocolate cut into good size chunks. I made them slightly larger, got 24 instead of the 30. I rolled them into balls and slightly flattened them. I then, put them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, this helps to keep their shape without them spreading out of shape. Cooked for 13 minutes in batches. Nothing short of perfect, beautifully crisp on the outside, superb on the inside, and beautifully flavoured. Will def make again, and do some different fillings as well. They have almost gone after just a few hours, everybody loves them.

These were amazing! I used 50g of granulated sugar instead of 80g and I used a mix of milk and dark chocolate chunks. Best homemade cookies I've ever had

Great recipe! I used whole rice flour instead of regular flour because I'm gluten intolerant and it worked well. Next time I'll reduce the amount of sugar by a third, though. But it's very good anyway. I had to stop myself from eating the dough before I put the cookies in the oven! :-)

Far too sweet for my liking, dough was very sticky, followed the recipe exactly and found them a bit greasy! Would cut down the sugar and butter next time.
