Cookies! Who doesn’t love choc-chip cookies? These are super simple to prepare and take no effort at all, just a bit of care at the baking stage. The best bit is you can even make your own cookie dough ice cream by stirring small chunks of the mix through some good quality vanilla ice cream. The monster would definitely approve…
275g demerara sugar
250g caster sugar
560g plain flour
300g good quality chocolate (we used dark and milk but use whatever you fancy!)
Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth and pale. Mix in the eggs then stir in the flour and salt.
Roughly chop the chocolate and mix in roll the cookie dough into a couple of log shapes, wrap in cling film and rest in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
When the dough is resting preheat the oven to gas 3.
Slice the cookie dough into 1cm thick slices and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, remove and cool on a wire rack. One word of warning – these will look and feel nowhere near ready but they will harden more when they cool.
Enjoy with a nice glass of milk, or warmed slightly and covered in cream!
