The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was all set to provide a totally different recipe here when I encountered at church what the cookie is meant to be: crunchy and chewy and oh-so-sweet. Thankfully, their baker shared with me the origins of her recipe. The softer cookies that I baked last week now seem hopelessly outmoded. If you have been searching for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, look no further.


(makes about 32)

150g granulated sugar
160g light brown sugar
227g butter/margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
290g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
200g milk chocolate chips
  1.  Heat oven to 190oC
  2. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the flour and bicarbonate of soda, then the chocolate chips
  4. Use an ice-cream scoop to drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving room for spreading.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes until light brown (centres will still be a bit soft). Allow to cool on tray for a few minutes then move to wire racks.
