Chocolate Chip Cookies
185g butter, softened
200g brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
300g plain flour
1/2 tspn baking powder
200g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 180C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.
Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and combined sugars in a medium bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat until well combined. Add the flour and baking powder and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the chocolate and stir to combine.
Roll 2 tablespoonsful of mixture into a ball. Place on the lined tray and gently flatten. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes (or a further 5 minutes for a crisper biscuit). Remove from oven and set aside on the tray to cool completely.
