  • 150g Butter - softened
  • 120g light brown soft sugar
  • 30g dark brown soft sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 300g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g plain choc chips
  • 100g milk choc chips


    1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a flat baking sheet with grease proof paper.
    2. Cream the butter and sugar together and then mix in the egg and essence.
    3. mix in half the flour and then the choc chips. Stir until the chocolate is mixed nicely and evenly through the mixture.
    4. Add in the remaining flour and baking powder until the mixture consumes all the dry ingredients.
    5. You can then either put dessert spoon dollops onto the baking tray and bake for 12 mins or until just browning. OR you can squash into a thin square shape on clingfilm and place in the fridge for an hour.
    6. Remove the dough from the fridge and cut into approx 30 peices. Roll these into balls and put onto the baking tray and into the oven for 7 mins.
    7. After 7 mins take out of the oven and press down each ball with the back of a spoon in the middle until slightly spread. Return to the oven for another 7 mins or until browned.
    8. Remove from oven and cool on a wire wrack- or eat warm!!

Hi Carol Its been ages since i last made these.. As far as i remember they are at their best for the first 3 - 4 days although i suppose it depends how you store them. I havent tried it but i should think it would be OK to freeze the dough. Hope that helps :) x

I ran out of plain flour so added a mixture of SF and Coco powder...seemed to work a treat. (You just have to push them down half way through cooking so they don't rise too much) :-)

I forgot to add the baking powder and still they were great! I used all dark chocolate chunks and chips, too.
