Vintage Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Lately, I have been getting into my baking more and realising how much fun and rewarding it is when you finally taste the finished product.  So with that said, I thought that I would share with you a recipe that I always use to make the most scrumptious cookies around!

150g unsalted butter, softened
80g light brown muscovado sugar
80g granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
225g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
200g plain chocolate chunks


* Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190C (or 170C if you have a fan oven).  Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
* Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy.  The best in the egg.
* Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon.  Add the chocolate chips and stir well.
* Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays.  Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.
* Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.

And voila!  You now will have at least 20 scrumptious chocolate chip cookies that you and your family can enjoy!

If however you are like me and are a huge Nutella fan (and an even bigger fan of Starbuck's Nutella filled cookies - they are seriously incredible), then why not make your own!

All you have to do is the following:
.  Make the cookie mix and then when you are about to make small mounds for the baking trays, using the palm of your hand flatten the mixture and place a small amount of Nutella on top of it.
.  Then simply fold over the cookie mix so that the Nutella is no longer visible.
.  Bake in the oven for around 8-10 mins on 170C and then leave them on a cooling rack to cool.
.  Once cooled break them open and enjoy the nutty delicious melted centre!

I hope you all are having a relaxing Sunday!  What would you like me to bake next?
