  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 170g unsalted butter melted

  • 215g soft light brown sugar

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1 tsp fine salt

  • 120g granulated sugar

  • 300g plain flour

  • 300g milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Sift together flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  3. Stir together melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla. Add whole egg, then the yolk.
  4. Beat well to ensure that egg is evenly distributed. Stir in dry ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips until incorporated.
  5. Cover with clingfilm and chill dough until firm. At least 30 minutes.
  6. Drop golf ball-sized and slightly flattened mounds of dough onto a greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes or only until the edges begin to turn golden. They'll look and feel underdone but they're ready.

    I've now made these delicious cookies twice! They went down a treat! I would say they're not quite as soft as supermarket ones, but just as delicious.

    The dough will keep covered in the frodge for up to a week so you can bake a few whenever you need them.
