My Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


(Makes: approx. 12)

  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 125g soft light brown sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 300g flour
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • As many milk chocolate chips as you wish!


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Melt the butter and let it cool a bit.
  • Put both the brown and white sugars into a bowl.
  • Pour the slightly cooled, melted butter over them and beat together.
  • Beat in the vanilla, the cold egg and cold egg yolk until your mixture is light and creamy.
  • Slowly mix in the flour and bicarb until it is all mixed together, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the cookie dough into an round icecream scoop and drop onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • The cookies need to be about 5cm apart, so they don’t join together when they bake.
  • Bake for 15–17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted.
  • Cool on wire racks.
  • And enjoy with a lovely hot chocolate!
