Chewy American Cookie Deliciousness

These are so simple to make, only a few steps and they turn out perfect. Cook these and you will certainly impress your friends. Again like so many of my recipes they are customisable. You can add other things like m&m’s, toffee pieces etc.

The Ingredients:
375g Plain Flour
200g Caster Sugar
220g Dark Brown Soft Sugar
220g Butter
350g Dark or Milk Chocolate Chips
1tbsp Vanilla extract
1 tbsp Hot Water
1 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
0.5tsp Salt
2 Eggs

The How-To:
Preheat oven to 180c
Cream the butter and the two different sugars together until they form a smooth mixture.
Beat the two eggs into the mixture.
Stir in the vanilla extract.
Mix the 1 tsp Bicarbonate Soda with the 1 tbsp hot water in a separate container and add to the mixture.
Mix in the salt.
Now stir in the flour and the chocolate chips (as well as any other additions you decide to use).
Place 1 tbsp amounts of the mixture on baking sheets. These spread quite a bit so I wouldn’t put any more than 4 on each large baking tray. You will be able to make about 6 batches with this mix.
Bake for about 10 mins. Do not be fooled that they are still soft  as they harden up as they cool. You want them to remain slightly soft/chewy in the centre.

You’re Done!

  1. I came to your blog on the recommendation of Rose Levy Beranbaum. I think that says it all!
    I have bookmarked and will check in often. So far, I really like your simple, straight-to-the- heart style and this post is just perfect. Flat and chewy cookies are my favourite.
    Good job.

  2. Hi, thank you very much for such kind compliments. Rose is certainly a huge inspiration to all bakers, and was very kind to recommend us. A lot of people think baking is extremely difficult so it is our mission to write things as simple as they really are.
