Some people want edible cookies when they visit a Cookies web page. So here’s our recipe for the world’s finest cookies.
- 100 grams butter
- 50 grams caster sugar
- 60 grams brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence/extract
- 125 grams of plain flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- A big bar of chocolate (at least 200 grams)
- A couple of handfuls of coarsely chopped walnuts (if you’ve got small hands, add an extra handful just for luck)
Turn your oven on to preheat at 180 degrees Celsius (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit, gas mark 4). Remember to take your grill pan out first. Now get some baking trays ready (if they’re not non-stick then you better line them or grease them).
In a big bowl add the butter and both sugars, and then beat them until they are light and fluffy. We like our mixing the old fashioned way so we’d probably use a wooden spoon; but a whisk would work too. If you’re really posh and have a fancy food processor you could always use that, but remember: it’s yourself you’re cheating at the end of the day. You’ll know you’re pretty much there when the colour starts to lighten, and the sugar starts to look less granular.
Add your egg and vanilla essence and mix them all together well. Try and use vanilla extract rather than vanilla essence – it’s much closer to the real thing.
To give your arm a bit of a rest from all that mixing, in a separate bowl measure out the flour, salt, and bicarbonate of soda. Best to pass them through a sieve if you have one. (Handy kitchen tip: tennis rackets, while ideal for draining pasta, are not of much use when sieving flour, so don’t bother.)
Now add the dry ingredients to the sugary egg-butter mix and use a wooden spoon to mix them all together well.
Time to prepare the chocolate chips and walnuts. For the walnuts we’d probably start with some walnut halves and then chop them up into bite-size pieces.
The choice of which chocolate to use is entirely up to you. Now, the size of chunk is a subject of much discussion around Thebits office. Some people prefer a dainty chip. But I say you should never be too scared to go large – a centimetre square would work just fine. The cooking process makes the chocolate go soft in the middle, meaning it’s not hard when you bite in – so sometimes the bigger the better. But don’t be afraid to experiment.
Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
Try and resist the temptation at this stage just to sit down with a spoon and eat it out of the bowl. Instead, drop the mix in tablespoon-sized scoops onto the baking trays. Remember to leave plenty of space between scoops – these boys need space to spread out. If you’re being economical you’ll get about 10 to 12 cookies.
Pop them in the oven and bake until they go golden brown, and the centres are still slightly soft to the touch. It’s going to take about 12 to 15 minutes. Take them out, leave them to sit for 5 minutes then pop them on a cooling rack.
Hey Presto! The world’s finest cookies, in the comfort of your own home.
