125g/4½oz unsalted butter

How to make Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Chop the chocolate into little chunks and set aside.
  • Heat the butter in a small saucepan very gently until it has just melted. Meanwhile, put the two types of sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour the melted butter on top of the sugars and beat well with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the  and the vanilla and beat until well blended.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl and stir them in, then add the chopped chocolate.
  • Dot heaped pudding spoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking sheets, leaving plenty of space in between them–they really spread out while baking.
  • Wearing oven gloves, put the baking sheets in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just turning golden brown. (If you have a glass door on your oven, watch the extraordinary transformation as these cookies bake–one moment you’ve got lumpy brown dough, the next, you have pale golden cookies, their shiny surface a network of cracks.)
  • Leave the cookies on the baking sheets to harden for a couple of minutes, then carefully lift up the baking parchment and transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
  • You can eat these cookies warm, but they are also good cold, and they store well in an airtight tin.
