It wasn't so long ago that I used to spend a lot of my time in the kitchen cooking and baking, which I love doing. These days circumstances are such that I don't really do an awful lot in the kitchen, but this morning I really fancied making something naughty. I found this cookie recipe here a little while, and decided to give it a try. the reviews are right, and they're really like proper shop-bought cookies, so I thought I'd share the recipe.
Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
|250g plain flour|
|1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda|
|1/2 teaspoon salt|
|170g unsalted butter, melted|
|150g dark brown soft sugar|
|50g caster sugar|
|1 teaspoon vanilla extract|
|1 egg yolk|
|325g chocolate chips|
If you look at the site itself, you'll see that I've changed the sugar and vanilla extract volumes based on the feedback on the site. I also only added 100g of chocolate (I just had a bar of green and blacks which I chopped up into chunks) and I would probably go with the volume on the recipe! Finally, I used tablespoon sized blobs of the cookie mixture, and came out with the cookies in the picture above - I think if you used the 4 tablespoons that the recipe recommends, then they'd be the size of dinner plates ... although that doesn't sound entirely awful!
