Chocolate chip cookies anyone?

Today for home economics, Agent Smelly decided to make some Chocolate Chip cookies. The recipe we use is from a dear friend that lives near us. When she visits she always brings a batch of her "Best chocolate chip cookies ever!" (quote from both my girls) with her.

Now, the same way as chocolate brownie recipes, etc always say this is the best ever "blah, blah, blah recipe" well people I have to say this one is in fact really, really good and if a seven year old can successfully make them, then you can rest assured you'll be able to.

So here's Agent Smelly with some of the cookies she made.
(We polished off quite a few whilst they were still warm and yummy from the oven)

Chocolate Chip Cookies (created by Sophie Gray)
  •  2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn baking soda
  • 180gms melted and slightly cooled butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar (you can easily decrease this to 1/2 or 3/4)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tspns vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or chopped buttons (again 1 cup is more than enough)
Preheat oven to 170oC
Mix flour, salt and baking soda together.
In a large separate bowl mix butter and sugars well. Beat in vanilla and eggs, one at a time.
Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture until just combined
Stir in chocolate.
With a large spoon, scoop good size mounds onto a greased baking tray (don't flatten).
Bake until cookies are slightly golden and still a little puffy (approx 15 mins)

Makes 20 large or 15 monster cookies.

Agent Smelly made more cookies than the recipe suggested so they were smaller and therefore a little more golden than they needed to be. She also did flatten them with a fork but by gosh they are really yummy!
