chocolate chip cookies
- 180g unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup (135g) brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups (300g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
- 150g dark chocolate, chopped
- Preheat oven to 180ºC. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and creamy. Gradually add the eggs and beat well. Add the flour and baking powder and beat until a smooth dough forms. Fold through the chocolate.

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. They’re so quick to make and absolutely YUM! I make them smaller than suggested using a small melon scoop. Everyone just loves them.
I made these cookies this afternoon. I doubled the recipe to feed my large family and I have to say they are amazing. Crumbly and melt in your mouth. Big hit here and cannot wait to make them again.
