  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 50g sugar

  • 75g soft light brown sugar

  • 1 eggs

  • 150g chocolate chopped into chunks

  • 150g plain flour

  • 100g butter or cooking margerine


  1. In a roomy bowl, soften butter in the microwave and beat in the sugars.
  2. Add the beaten egg, salt, vanilla, bicarb and mix well.
  3. Add the chopped chocolate and stir, then mix in the flour. The mix will be quite stiff.
  4. Put dessert spoonfuls of mix onto a baking sheet, spacing them well apart as the cookie will spread.
  5. Bake at about 180 for 10-12 mins.

Handy Hint

You can vary the chocolate mix as long as you stick roughly to the same weight of 150g. White choc and dried cherries and cranberries is delish, choc and raisin etc.

    These were delicious. I don't have a microwave so melted the butter in a bowl over simmering water in a pan and it worked fine. My dh's comment was - "You could sell these." I made 20 in 3 batches.

    Made these when we had family staying and they went down very well, quite easy to make.

    This is a doddle and makes the American style 'chewy' cookies. From Barbie's Fun to Cook (yes really!)
