Simply Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

If I keep baking cookies, it’s because I am never quite satisfied with them: I have searched long and wide for that perfect cookie that “looks the part, smells the part” and more importantly “tastes the part”…. I believe I found it! My older son tells me “You can stop looking now Mummy” so time to share!

Ingredients:

  • 150g butter
  • 85g soft light brown sugar
  • 75g sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg + 1 yolk straight from the fridge
  • 200g flour
  • 100g rolled oats
  • ¾ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp salt (but not if you’re using salted butter)
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla
  • Chocolate chips ( 3 large handful)

Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 170°C/ 150°fan/ Gas 3 and line 2 baking trays: it makes 12 to 14 cookies

  • Add to both sugars and cream together
  • Beat in the vanilla and eggs until the mixture is light and creamy

  • Using an ice cream scoop (I find the medium sized one works best), drop the dough onto the baking trays, well apart

004

  • Bake for 15 to 18mn, until the edges are slightly toasted. When I have 2 trays, I swap them after 10mn, back to front and top to bottom

  • Leave to cool for 5mn before transferring to cooling wire

and resist for as long as you can….
