Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 32 cookies


  • 150 g salted butter softened
  • 70 g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 70 g granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 225 g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 120 g plain chocolate chip or chunks


  • Heat the oven to 190C/fan170C/gas mark 5.
  • Line two baking sheets with non-stick baking paper.
  • Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy.
  • Beat in the vanilla and egg.
  • Sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda into the bowl and mix it in with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir well.
  • Use a teaspoon to make small scoops of the mixture, space them well apart on the baking trays. This mixture should make about 32 cookies. I use two baking trays for the cookies, putting half on each tray.
  • Bake for 8–10 mins until they are light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre if you press them.
  • Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to set and then lift onto a cooling rack.
