This easy chocolate cookie recipe is a big family favourite. Chocolatey and soft within, they are super quick to make and absolutely delicious. A perfect treat for the children too.
Preheat your oven to 170 C (150 Fan)/325 F/Gas Mark 3.
Put 300 grams of plain flour, 50 grams of cocoa, 250 grams soft butter (cut into 2 cm cubes), 250 grams of sugar, 1 tbsp of vanilla extract and an egg into your large mixing bowl.
If you are using the hand held whisk then start by mixing the butter and sugar together first, followed by the rest of ingredients (apart from the chocolate chips). This will stop the dry ingredients coming over the top of the mixing bowl.
If you are using a free standing mixer then simply mix all ingredients together until well combined.
Add 150 grams of chocolate chips and mix into the cookie dough with a wooden spoon.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
Leave on the baking tray for a few minutes before using a fish slice or wide bladed pallet knife to move them to a wire rack to completely cool.
