I was totally up for baking cookies on Sunday, I just had to decide which recipe to go for. And then I saw Anne’s latest post, clicked on the recipe and realised it was from the blog Smitten Kitchen which I adore (and I have loved every single recipe I have tried from it), so of course I was going to make these chewy chocolate chip cookies.
The cookies were easy to make, and they were exactly they way I had pictured them; chewy in the middle, crisp on the outside, the perfect taste of earthy cookie combines with both sweet and bitter chocolate. That was the only change I made to the recipe, substituting some of the dark chocolate for white. Yum, is all I have to say to that!
Chewy chocolate chip cookies, makes 25
170 g butter
300 g flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp salt
210 g brown sugar
100 g sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
100 g white chocolate, chopped
70 g dark chocolate, chopped
Melt the butter. Mix flour with bicarb and salt in a bowl. Stir together both sugars with the melted butter. Beat in the egg, the egg yolk and the vanilla extract, until the mixture turns light and fluffy. Stir in the flour mixture, and finally the chocolate.
Scoop cookies onto a lined baking sheet, and leave plenty of space for them to spread out (I baked 6 cookies at the time.) Bake at 165°C for 12 minutes.
