Simple Chocolate Chunk Cookies

27 May 2019

There's nothing better than taking a break with a cup of tea and a warm, gooey cookie, and that's exactly what I've been spending my bank holiday doing...It's been a little while since I've been baking, and even longer since I've shared a recipe on here, so today I thought I'd jump back online {and into the kitchen} to share my super simple chocolate chunk cookie recipe. Without further ado...


115g Salted Butter 
200g Flour 
115g Caster Sugar
50g Brown Sugar 
115g Chocolate Chips {I use a mixture of chunks and chips}
1/4 teaspoon Salt 
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda 
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 


1. Preheat the oven to 180° and line two baking trays with grease proof paper. 

2. Place the butter into a microwave safe bowl and pop into the microwave for about a minute, until the butter has completely melted. 

3. Combine the melted butter, caster sugar and white sugar in a mixing bowl until a creamy mixture is formed. 

4. Add in the vanilla extract and egg and mix until the egg is only just combined {any more than this and the egg will be too stiff for the mixture}. 

5. Add in the flour, baking soda and salt until the mixture forms a dough type texture and is very slightly crumbly. You should be able to pick up the mixture and mould it with your hands without it sticking - if the mixture is too wet, add in a few tablespoons of flour at a time until the right consistency is reached. 

6. Add in the chocolate chips or whatever you're planning on adding to the recipe {I love adding m&ms as a twist!} and mix into the dough with your hands. 

7. Once everything is properly combined, roll the dough into 12 separate balls {or less if you want giant cookies!} and place each ball on a baking sheet, leaving plenty of room inbetween. 

8. Pop into the preheated oven for 9-11 mins and no longer. Even if the cookies are still extremely soft and pale when the timer is finished, still take them out - if you over bake them they won't be soft in the middle, and the cookies will firm up slightly as they cool. 

9. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking trays for 30-40 mins, then enjoy! 

And there you have it, my super simple cookie recipe! Feel free to customise with different sweets, chocolates, fruit, etc and if you do, be sure to let me know of any winning combinations so I can try them out myself! ☺️
