Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies of any kind!  I try and keep some in the freezer to pull out and cook fresh when I am in the mood, nothing beats a still warm, gooey cookie after dinner with a cup of tea or coffee or even a scoop of ice cream!

These cookies freeze brilliantly and are so nice with the white chocolate chips in as well as dark chocolate chips, you could swap out for milk chocolate if you wished.

150 gm butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
250 gm white chocolate chips or chunks
250 gm dark chocolate chips or chunks

Cream together butter and both sugars.

Beat until pale approx 8 minutes.

Beat in vanilla and egg until combined or approx 5 minutes.  Stir through sifted flour and baking powder until combined.

Stir through the chocolate chips.

Scoop onto cookie sheet with your cookie scoop or a tablespoon measure.  At this stage you can freeze for later.

Bake in 180C pre heated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown around the edges.

These keep for up to a week in an airtight container.
