Nothing beats a super chewy cookie filled to the brim with chocolate. My guilty pleasure is those cookies you can get at subway… and yes 3 cookies for a £1 is definitely speaking my kind of language.
In homage to those and all other chewy cookies out there I decided to whip up a batch up of my own and they are so simple to bake.
I baked these using leftover ingredients in my kitchen, no fancy bits and pieces just simple ingredients combined together to make something really yummy.
These ingredients make around 25 medium to large size cookies. Perfect for a get together with friends and family or when you are feeling particularly hangry, I promise you won’t be able to have just one.
Chocolate Chunk Cookies –
- 125g Unsalted Butter (I use Stork)
- 160g Light Brown Soft Sugar
- 60g Caster Sugar
- 120g Plain Flour
- 150g Self Raising Flour
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 200g Milk Chocolate Chunks
1. Preheat your oven to 160°C/Fan 140°C/Gas Mark 3. Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
2. Place the butter in saucepan and melt over a low to medium heat. You can also do this in a microwave (either works fine). Set aside to cool slightly.
3. Sift the sugar into a large mixing bowl and add in the melted butter. Stir until the mixture is combined, smooth and the sugar has mostly dissolved.
4. Whisk the egg and add this to the mixture along with the vanilla extract, continuing to stir all the time.
5. Sift the flour and baking powder into a small bowl and gradually add this to the mixture in two parts until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
6. Now you have your cookie dough. Scoop up a spoonful of the dough and place small blobs on your baking tray, making sure to leave enough room for the cookies to spread whilst baking. I find it much easier to use my hands to shape the blobs.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoyyyyy!
