Chocolate Chip Cookies
Melt 250g butter.
Stir in 350g brown sugar.
Add 2 large eggs and a big dollop of vanilla essence.
Stir in 300g plain flour, with a large teaspoon of baking powder (you might be able to use self raising flour; I've not tried).
Take 200g milk chocolate, chop it into decent sized chunks, and stir in. The dough should be gooey and sticky, almost like a thick sponge cake dough rather than mouldable playdough style.
Grease baking trays and drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto them - leave plenty of space as these cookies SPREAD! Bake in a preheated oven at 190degrees C (375F) until they look done - golden on the outside, gooey in the middle. Somewhere between 8 and 15. minutes, depending on the size of the cookie. Makes 2 dozen super large ones or 3-4 dozen smaller, polite ones!
