- 280g plain flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 180g butter
- 165g soft light brown sugar
- 100g white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 200g chocolate chip cookies - I used milk chocolate but think I will try with dark chocolate ones next time.
Measure the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda and place together in a bowl
In a mixer with paddle attachment beat the butter and eggs together until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time until fully combined. Add the vanilla extract and beat for a few seconds
Add half the flour and beat for 15 seconds. Add the remaining and beat until just combined
Fold in the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl and put in the refrigerator for as long as you can, overnight ideally. You can leave it just an hour or two but it will be harder to form the cookies.
Scoop the dough out into 2-tablespoon size balls and shape into perfect balls with your hands. Place on linked baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Bake for 12-14 minute at 200C until the edges are goloden brown and the tops starting to get dark. Remove and cool for a few minutes or do like I did and eat straight away!
Along with a big glass of milk, theres no better way to round off a lovely weekend.
