Description

A single chunky, gooey and chocolatey cookie which comes together in just 30 minutes!


Ingredients

  • 1.25 tbsp butter (18g)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, packed (13g)
  • 1/2 tbsp white sugar (7g)
  • 1/2 egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp flour (25g)
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 oz chopped dark chocolate (28g)

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave, using 8s increments
  • Add the white and brown sugar, and whisk for 1-2 minutes
  • Add half of an egg yolk and whisk again for 30-60 seconds. The mixture should look very smooth at this point
  • Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt, and use a small rubber spatula or spoon to very gently fold until the flour is almost combined (but not fully)
  • Add the chopped chocolate and continue to gently fold only until no more streaks of flour are visible. You should not overmix after adding the dry ingredients and chocolate!
  • The batter will be a bit runny at this point - don't worry and chuck into the freezer for 10-15 minutes
  • In the meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 375F and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Once the dough is chilled, gently form it into a ball, and place onto the baking sheet
  • Bake for just 10-12 minutes until the cookie is firm around the edges but a bit soft in the middle
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes before eating!

Notes

  • You should chill the cookie dough for a minimum of 10-15 minutes in the freezer. However, you can also chill for longer in the fridge, and more chilling will give better results in flavor and texture. I find 2 hours in the fridge to be optimum
  • It is best to use a light colored baking sheet, as baking on darker sheets will cause the cookie to become too brown and crispy on the bottom
