  • Melted, unsalted butter: 226 grams
  • Brown sugar (tightly packed): 250 grams
  • Castor or plain white sugar: 100 grams
  • Eggs: 1 large egg, and one egg yolk
  • Vanilla extract: 1 ½ teaspoons
  • All-purpose flour: 350 grams
  • Cornstarch: 2 teaspoons
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: ¾ teaspoons
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips/ chopped up chocolate bar: About 350 grams

Step-by-step guide to goodness:

In a large bowl, combine the melted butter and both types of sugar. Stir well.

Add the egg and the egg yolk, and stir this well too

Grab another bowl and a whisk, and mix the flour, cornstarch, salt and baking soda

Now this step might get messy, so do it carefully. Combine the dry mix with the wet mix, slowly. Stir this well till all the flour has been absorbed.

Toss in the chocolate chips and stir well, keeping some chips aside to decorate at the end.

Now that the dough is done, place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 177 degrees celcius and place butter paper or parchment paper onto the tray.

Take the dough out of the fridge, and with a tablespoon, scoop balls and place them on the tray a few inches apart.

Bake for about fifteen minutes – do not overbake, or the cookies will become hard. The centres may be soft, but that’s okay. While the cookies are still hot, you can decorate them with chips, nuts or candy!

Let the cookies cool on the tray and serve!

Try these out and let us know how they turn out!
