Ellis Tuesday Bakes On Wednesday: Chocolate Chip/Chunk Cookies


Chocolate Cookie Bake

I never used to be a huge chocolate chip cookie fan (I know, pause for shock horror) but now I'm pretty much obsessed with them. I thought that I would try making my own this month and I have to say, despite them looking a little 'rustic', to say the least and not exactly identical to the ones that I usually eat, these tasted just as I hoped they would. And the chocolate chunks actually distributed pretty evenly which was a bit of a surprise. A good surprise, no doubt about that. Although saying that, the one cookie, the one with the most chocolate chunks (it's the middle one on the top row) was certainly my favourite. There was so much chocolatey goodness in that cookie! Mmmm! I would probably make them a little thinner next time but that's only a personal preference.

Ingredients

100g Brown Sugar
125g Unsalted Butter
1 Egg
1 and a 1/2 teaspoons of Vanilla Essence
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
225g Self Raising Flour
200g Chocolate Chips or Chunks

Step One: Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5 and line baking tray(s) with greaseproof paper.
Step Two: Mix butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix again. Sieve in the flour and salt and combine once more. Add the chocolate chips/chunks and stir well.
Step Three: Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture on to the baking tray(s), making sure to leave considerable room between them.
Step Four: Bake for 8-10 minutes until light brown on the edges and still slight soft in the centre.

Top Tip: If you like your cookies that little bit chewier, make sure to take them out of the oven slightly earlier and leave them on the baking tray. They will still carry on cooking and your cookies should be lovely and chewy in the centre.

  1. These look so good! I've only ever baked cookies once and they didn't turn out that well. I might have to try my luck with these though.

  2. Ooh heaven! I love fresh chocolate cookies, especially when they're still warm as the chocolate is still metled and gooey. I prefer using larger chunks of chocolate rather than chips as you get more of a chocolate hit, mm! :) x

  7. Homemade cookies are always the best without a doubt! If you can get them to stay a little gooey in the center then you have done the perfect job! Had a quick browse through your other baking posts and I am now super hungry haha.
