Chocolate chip cookies

I love cookies but refuse to buy them as I can easily demolish a whole packet in one go! I stumbled across this message a few months ago and after making it and tweaking it I think it is now pretty perfect - I made them recently for Stuarts birthday BBQ and they were eaten before the actual food!

100g Soft brown sugar
100g Golden caster sugar
100g Butter (softened)
1 Egg
1tsp Vanilla extract
225g Plain flour
70g Melted milk chocolate
85g White chocolate (I use chips but you could smash up a bar of chocolate with a rolling pin & use that!)
85g Plain chocolate (same as above)

Heat oven to 200C/180 fan/Gas 6.
Line 1 or 2 baking sheets with baking paper and leave to one side.
Mix the sugars and butter together.
Add the egg, vanilla, flour and melted chocolate and mix everything together.
Stir in the chocolate chips (or chunks).
Use a tablespoon (or ice cream scoop) to scoop out balls of cookie dough and drop them straight onto the trays.
Bake in batches for 8-9 minutes until pale golden and still soft to touch - don't worry they firm up as they cool.

Try not to eat them all straight away - they are delicious eaten warm though!

Enjoy :)
