    Makes: About 12

    Ingredients

    110g unsalted butter, softened
    100g caster sugar
    60g light brown muscovado sugar
    1 egg
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    ½ tsp salt
    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    190g plain flour
    150g dark chocolate, cut into chunks 

    Method

    1 Using electric beaters, cream together the butter and sugars for 3-4 minutes until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue to beat until combined. Sift in the salt, bicarbonate of soda and flour and use a wooden spoon to bring the mixture together. Stir through the chocolate chunks until evenly distributed. Cover with cling film and chill for at least 1 hour.


    2 Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Line
 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Take 2 heaped teaspoons of the cookie dough and roll in your hands to make a ball. Put on the parchment-lined baking trays and flatten slightly. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing them well apart.

    3 Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are just turning golden. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
