These cookies are good. Very good. I thought the original recipe-poster was exaggerating when she said these cookies had changed her from cookie-apathy (*cue my incredulous face*) to cookie adoration. But in fact I think these would take anyone’s cookie appreciation to a whole new level. Unfortunately, they look pretty much exactly the same as the last batch about which I blogged due to the fabled cupcake baker, but they taste very much better!
Made 20-odd, but they’re quite small.
150g unsalted butter, softened
250g light brown sugar
225g plain flour
200g dark chocolate
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Cream butter and sugar with whisks or elbow-grease. Add egg and mix until well combined.
- Separately, mix the dry ingredients minus the chocolate.
- Fold butter mixture into the flour until only just combined.
- Chop chocolate into chunks and add to the dough. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes-72 hours.
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line 2 baking sheets or trays with baking paper.
- Scoop 1/3cup balls of dough and place on the prepared trays. Allowing room for them to spread. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt flakes.
- Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cookies are golden. Cool on the tray.
