Cooking time

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 10 minutes 4+ hours - dough to stand (optional)

Skill level



approx. 20 cookies (based on ice cream scoop sized balls of dough)

Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside and full of chocolate chips...perhaps the perfect cookie combination?

  • 200g salted butter, softened
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 200g light brown muscavado sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 300g chocolate chips (or according to personal preference)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/150C fan/gas 5.

  2. Cream the butter and sugars togethers. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

  3. Mix the flour and bicarbonate of soda and stir into the mixture. Add the chocolate chips and mix well.

  4. The mixture can be left to stand for a few hours or it can be baked straight away. Line and grease a baking tray. Place balls of dough spread well apart on the tray (multiple batches will be required!) Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins or until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.

  5. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes until they are firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack. They will continue to cook a small amount while they are on the tray straight from the oven so it's better to remove them sooner rather than later!

Too much vanilla, bit sickly for me... Though on the plus side means you can't eat too many in one sitting!!! Great dough mix though and PERFECT soft cookie texture!! I used chocolate chunks cut into quarters instead of choc chips and that worked great... nice gooey chocolate chunks.... mmmmmmm!!
