    Makes: 15 to 18 cookies

    • 115g butter or margarine, softened
    • 110g soft brown sugar
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 2 to 3 drops vanilla extract
    • 200g chocolate drops or chips (I like dark choc)
    • 155g plain flour
    • 1 pinch baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:27min 

    1. Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line or butter your baking tray.
    2. Using an electric mixer, mix butter and both sugars together until pale and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla until mixed well. Stir in your chocolate drops or chips of your choice
    3. Sift your flour, baking powder and salt together and add a little at a time folding the sifted ingredients into the mixture with a spoon.
    4. Using a spoon place blobs of the mixture onto your baking tray (I'm not too fussy about them being perfect, although, don't place them too close together as they'll stick to one another when they flatten out during baking, around 8cm apart).
    5. Bake for around 10 to 12 minutes. Don't be put off if they still feel soft to the touch, they should feel like this as they will harden when they have cooled; especially if you like gooey cookies in the centre. Once slightly hardened transfer cookies onto cooling rack (although most of mine don't make it that far, they're usually eaten whilst still warm). Enjoy!
