These chunky & buttery chocolate chip cookies were the result of an afternoon in isolation where we were absolutely bored – and were craving the odd sweet treat because we all know cookies make everything better.
I end up craving the weirdest things at the weirdest times, but for once it’s some sort of normal food and, I don’t know about you, but there is nothing normal about me.
I am a self-confessed lover of Ben’s Cookies – they are absolutely to die for – and whenever I was central, I would buy a box to take home.
The girls would be elated and I would fight them for the last one – like the great big sister that I am – and you know how it ends. I win – in case you were wondering.
Then a few days (maybe more like weeks?) ago, we shared those on Instagram stories and a few people were interested in the recipe, so who am I to deprive you of these bloody amazing chunky & buttery chocolate chip cookies?!
- 250g unsalted butter
- 200g white sugar
- 200g brown sugar
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 410g flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 100g chocolate chips
- In a small bowl, measure all your dry ingredients - minus the chocolate chips.
- In a larger bowl, cream your butter with the sugars until it's fluffy and light.
- Add the eggs, one at the time, and keep beating until they are incorporated.
- Now add the vanilla extract and start adding the dry ingredients slowly - it can get very messy!
- Once the dry ingredients are fully incorporated, add the chocolate chips and fold in by hand using a spatula.
- Divide the dough using an ice cream scooper or by hand, rolling so that you create some balls - they shouldn't be bigger than 4cm.
- Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes at 180°C.
They hold for 5 days in a air-tight container (if they get to last that long!).
These chunky & buttery chocolate chip cookies never last around here.
We found them perfect because they do not need to be refrigerated before baking, and they are ready in literally 30 minutes.
While we do not advise eating raw cookie dough – that my friend, is a pleasure we seem to enjoy slightly too much as well ha!
We have yet to try to freeze the uncooked dough, but it can easily hold in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just in case you need a pick-me-up while #wfh.
These are one of the few ways in which I eat chocolate, and there is absolutely nothing better than a cookie, trust me.
