Chocolate Chip Cookies | Recipe

110g of unsalted butter,
1/2 cup of dark brown sugar,
1/4 cup of white sugar,
1 egg,
2 tsp of pure vanilla extract,
1 cup and 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour,
1 tsp of baking soda,
1/2 cup of chocolate chips


*Preheat the oven to 190C

1. Whisk together the butter and two types of sugars until light and fluffy. The remaining mixture should be slightly pale after 2-3 minutes.
2. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and incorporate briefly until just combined.
3. Fold in the flour and baking soda with a spatula until a dough forms. Do not overmix.
4. Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly dispersed into the dough.
5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
6. Scoop the cookie dough with an ice-cream scoop or a tablespoon, and deposit on the baking sheet. Make sure to leave around 2-3cm between each one to allow for room to spread. Also, ensure to not overcrowd the baking sheets- I'd say have a maximum of 6 cookies on one baking sheet.
7. Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes, making sure not to over-bake as they will continue to cook when you take them out of the oven.
8. Cool on a cooling rack, and serve warm. Enjoy!

TIP: Ensure all ingredients are all at room temperature (especially the butter and egg) so that they incorporate well, otherwise the mixture may curdle and split.
