Ingredients

  • 300g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 170g unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 215g light brown sugar
  • 120g granulated white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 300g milk chocolate chips

Method

Sift together flour, bicaronate of soda and salt. Set aside.Stir together melted butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla. Add egg, then the yolk. Beat well to ensure that egg is evenly distributed. Stir in dry ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips until incorporated. It will look as if there are too many chocolate chips but the dough will be able to hold them all. Cover with clingfilm and chill dough until firm. At least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5. Put 75g mounds of dough onto a greased baking sheet. You can use a silpat sheet instead of greasing which works very well.
