Chunky Chocolate Cookies

Last week I posted Raspberry and Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe up and not realising I didn't put up the recipe for traditional chocolate chip cookies. Opps my bad. I use two different types of roughly chopped chocolate to add texture and flavour to the cookies. 



Recipe: Makes 14 cookies (Recipe inspired by Cookies Galore Book)
        150g white chocolate, roughly chopped into chunks 
        150g dark chocolate, roughly chopped into chunks
         200g unsalted butter, at room temperature
·       150g golden caster sugar
·       1 egg
·       200g plain flour, sifted
·       1 teaspoon baking power
·       1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Equipment:
·       Electric hand-mixer/Wooden spoon
        Bowl x 3 
        Sieve
·       Teaspoon
·       Tablespoon
·       Chopping Board
        Knife
        Baking Sheet x 2 lined with baking paper/silicone paper

1.  Pre-heat the oven to 180c/350f/Gas Mark 4 and grease the baking sheets with the light oil spray/butter and line with silicone paper.
2.  Chop up all the chocolate into chunks. Set aside. 
3.Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
4. Beat in the egg and vanilla to the creamed mixture.
5. Sift the flour and baking power together and then beat to the cookie batter. 

6.  Add the chocolate chips and mix well into the cookie batter (try not to eat at this stage). Drop rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheets. Make sure sure you space the cookies well apart or they will cook together and stick.

7. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes and remove to a wire rack. 

Happy baking and have a great weekend!
