Some of you might have notice that I do more baking than cooking! So why change a habit – I picked this Giant Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe from the book! It will make 12 cookies.
- 115g butter
- 125 caster sugar
- 125g soft light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 280g plain flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 300g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
- Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl and whisk together until pale and creamy.
- Whisk the eggs and vanilla extract into the mixture until smooth.
- Stir in the flour and bicarbonate of soda, and beat together until well mixed.
- Stir in the chocolate chunks.
- Drop 12 large spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them well apart. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180°
- Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to wire racks and leave to cool.
This is super easy to make. My only difficulty was dividing up the proportions correctly. So I ended up with different shapes and sizes. Also I should have slightly flatten the cookies rather than letting them sit tall. My cookies ended up quite big and chunky! They are delicious though and my family love them!
