I’m always searching for a really good cookie recipe. The kind of recipe that makes cookies crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. ( what I would call american cookies) as a lot of British cookies are more hard and crunchy.
As I was searching I found the BBC good food recipe. I decided to try this recipe out over the weekend. Here’s is the link to the recipe I used- https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/6052/-chocolate-chip-cookies.
Oh my goodness, these cookies were amazing! I did make very slight adaptions to the recipe, only to fit what I had in my cupboards at the time and personal preference.
Here is the recipe I used with my changes, however you can of course follow the link and follow the original recipe. The method is also bellow.
- 200g softened butter
- 300g golden caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 300g self raising flour
- 80g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 300g choc chips dark and milk
- Preheat oven to 180 c/ gas 4
- Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth
- Add both of the eggs and combine
- Weigh out the flour, cocoa and baking powder together
- Slowly combine the dry ingredients, part by part.
- Fold in all of your extra ingredients e.g- chocolate
- I made large cookies and used a very heaped tablespoon when placing mine on the baking tray.
- Don’t over crowd the tray or it will all turn into one giant cookie! I put 5 on 1 tray and then 5 on another.
- If using 2 trays make sure to swap the positions in the oven at the half way point.
- The cookies will still be slightly soft, but don’t worry they will firm up after you have taken them out of the oven.
These will now be a staple recipe for me and I was very happy with how they turned out! let me know if you make these cookies or have used the recipe before.
