About this recipe:If you like your cookies soft but not floury, these are for you. Try using M&Ms, Smarties, chopped white chocolate, etc. instead of the plain chocolate chips, if desired. Note that they firm well when cooled, so if you like soft cookies you may want to take them out of the oven a tad on the early side.
250g self-raising flour
170g butter, melted

110g caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
Sift the flour, set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, dark brown soft sugar and caster sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted flour until just blended.
Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop big, round tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking trays, leaving plenty of room for spreading.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
