Dark Chocolate Chips Cookies



Credit - Nigella Lawson

Quantity - around 20 pieces  

Time - 40 minutes

Ingredients -
  • 125 gms. dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)
  • 150 gms. plain flour (I use wheat flour)
  • 30 gms. cocoa powder sieved
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 125 gms. butter soft
  • 75 gms. light brown sugar
  • 50 gms. white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium eggs cold from the fridge
  • 350 gms. dark chocolate chips (or semi sweet chocolate morsels)

Method -
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Melt the 125 g dark chocolate in a heatproof dish over a pan of simmering water.
  2. Put the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl.
  3. Cream the butter and sugars in another bowl.  Add the melted chocolate and mix together.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract and cold egg, and then mix in the dry ingredients. Finally stir in the chocolate morsels or chips.
  5. Scoop out 12 equal-sized mounds - an ice cream scoop and a palette knife are the best tools for the job - and place on a lined baking sheet about 6cm apart. Do not flatten them. (I made around 20 smaller cookies)
  6. Cook for 18 minutes, testing with a cake tester to make sure it comes out semi-clean and not wet with cake batter. If you pierce a chocolate chip, try again.
  7. Leave to cool slightly on the baking sheet for 4-5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack to harden as they cool.

Serve - Serve with tea or coffee. 

p.s: Its really simple and a huge hit!! :-)
