Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whip up a batch of these gooey chocolate chip cookies and serve with a hot cup of tea.

Preparation Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 15 minutes
Makes 20

185g butter, softened
1 cup (200g) brown sugar
1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups (300g) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
200g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.
2. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and combined sugars in a medium bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat until well combined. Add the flour and baking powder and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the chocolate and stir to combine.
3. Roll 2 tablespoonsful of mixture into a ball. Place on the lined tray and gently flatten. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes (or a further 5 minutes for a crisper biscuit). Remove from oven and set aside on the tray to cool completely.

Add 1 tsp of vanilla bean paste for an added flavour. Add 1/2 cup walnuts or hazelnuts for a nutty twist. Replace the dark chocolate with white or milk.
