Mega Cookies

M loves his cookies, but there is a habit forming that “you can’t just have one” so rather than just making normal cookies, I decided to make mega ones. These are chunky cookies that are kind of deli style. They went down a treat with a cuppa tea too.

This time round I just used a bag of chocolate chunks, but you could use lots of different kinds of chocolate or even a mix.


What you need

120g butter, softened 
200g plain flour
Half tsp baking powder
90g each caster and soft brown sugar
1 medium egg
2 drops vanilla extract
150g milk chocolate chunks


What to do

Preheat the oven to 180c and line two baking trays with grease-proof paper

Cream the butter and both types of sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture becomes creamy.

Add the vanilla and egg to the bowl and mix.

Sift in the flour and baking powder, mixing gently till combined.

Add in the chocolate chunks and mix again. Your cookie mix will look like a rough dough which is what you want.

Divide the mixture into balls and place on the backing tray spaced apart. This is where the mega comes in as I made mine large using an ice-cream scoop to make the balls. You can of course make more cookies by making smaller balls. 
Bake for 12-14 minutes till a nice golden colour. The longer you leave them in the oven the crispier they will be. I personally like a softer cookie but that is just me.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack - Though eating while slightly warm is yummy too!

What is your favourite cookie type? Do you prefer a crunchy cookie or a nice soft one?
