Cookie Night

There are sometimes, when you’re watching the new series of Prison Break with your neighbours, that you feel the need for chocolate chip cookies. Well, it happens. And being away from the land of Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chips, has often made this a challenge. For many years, bags of chocolate morsels would arrive from the US in parcels or as checked baggage.

Thankfully, Waitrose now have passable chocolate chips in the aisles. But then they also have Waitrose dark chocolate bars. Together, these are the ingredients of sinful cookies.

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
    100 g unsalted butter
    150 g soft brown sugar
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 3/4 c flour
    1/2 t baking powder
    1/2 t baking soda
    1/2 t salt
    1 c chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks cut from a bar of dark chocolate)

    Preheat the oven to 150 C.

    Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Next add the dry ingredients and finally add the chocolate chips. Fashion small balls out of the cookie dough (roughly 1 heaping tablespoon per cookie) and then flatten into circles of around 2 inches. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
