  • 420 grams plain/all purpose flour 3 and 1/2 cups
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons corn-flour/corn-starch
  • 105 grams unsalted butter 1/2 cup
  • 105 grams margarine/vegetable shortening 1/2 cup
  • 240 grams light brown sugar 1 cup - packed
  • 105 grams granulated sugar 1/2 cup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 300 grams dark / semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 and 1/2 cups


  • Place the flour, baking powder and soda, salt and corn-flour into a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk until everything is well incorporated then place to one side.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat the butter, margarine (shortening) and both sugars together until well mixed.
  • Add in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract and beat briefly until everything is well mixed together.
  • Pour in the flour mix and gently mix it all together, till you have a smooth and creamy mixture.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Place the dough in the fridge for anything from 1 hour to 3 days.
  • When ready to bake preheat your oven to 190C / 375F / Gas mark 5.
  • Then either using a medium sized cookie scoop or improvise like me and scoop balls of about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons in size onto a baking sheet lined with baking parchment or a silicone mat. Roll them into a ball shape, careful not to flatten them as they will spread a little in the oven.
  • Depending on your oven and how well baked you like your cookies these will bake up in around 12-15 minutes.
  • Kept in an airtight tin at room temperature these cookies will last up to 5 days.
  • These cookies also freeze well for up to 2 months.


Most of the prep time is inactive chilling time.
