Ultimate Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

18 Aug

I made these cookies for a gathering we were having at the house and they went down an absolute treat. I put them out on the counter and when I turned around again the tin was half empty. Everyone was raving about them and I think I may have actually found the king of all chocolate chip cookies. They are chewy and crisp on the edges and have an amazing flavor. A great treat for a party, picnic or a family gathering as they look super yummy and travel really well.

2 cups plus 2tbsp plain flour

3/4tsp baking powder

1/4tsp salt

170g/1 1/2 sticks butter, melted

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

2tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups milk and white chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 170ºc/325ºf and line 2 large cookie trays with baking parchment.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
  • In another bowl mix the melted butter and 2 sugars together, then beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until incorporated then beat in the dry ingredients and chocolate chips until it forms a sticky dough.
  • Put the dough in a line on some baking parchment and roll it into a sausage. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Cut into thick slices and spread out far apart on the cookie trays, you may need to do it in 2 batches. Bake for 15-18mins until golden and slightly crisp on the outside.
  • Allow to cool on the trays then devour!
