Food Love|| Vintage Chocolate Chip Cookies






I have always loved baking and cooking, and with a recent cake addiction and a new series of Great British Bake Off, I have decided to don my chef hat again and get baking!

My Mum asked me to bake her some chocolate chip cookies the other day, and I chose this Vintage Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from GoodFood for it's simplicity and yuminess.

Ingredients:
  • 150g salted butter
  • 80g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 80g granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 200g plain chocolate chips
The Method is pretty simple and straight forward:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C/170C (fan/gas 5) and line 2 baking trays with grease proof paper.
  2. Put the butter and two sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy (a mixer helps create the perfect creamy texture).
  3. Beat in the vanilla extract and eggs slowly.
  4. Add the sieved flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture in small batches, and mix with a wooden spoon.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips
  6. Place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the trays and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown on the outside but still soft in the centre. I went for slightly larger mounds, which took around five minutes longer.
After tasting a warm delicious cookie, I decided to add some sweetness to counteract the strong flavours of the plain chocolate chips. Mellt some milk chocolate in a bowl (I went for classic Dairy Milk) and drizzle to your hearts content over your cooled down cookies.

Tastes best when served with a cuppa and a slice of the Great British Bake Off!
