If you like chewy cookies like they sell at Subway, you’ll love this Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Inspired by a recipe from baking queen Mary Berry, these pillowy cookies are easy on the teeth and full of chewy chocolate flavour. Make them as large or small as you want, just leave plenty of room between the cookies as they bake, as they flatten and spread in the oven.

CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Makes: about 20 cookies     Difficulty: Easy

INGREDIENTS:

100g (3.4 oz) butter, softened to room temperature
75g (2.7 oz) caster sugar
50g (1.8 oz) brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
150g (5.3 oz) Self Raising flour
100g (3.4 oz) choc chips

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 190c (170 fan forced; 375F). Line a large baking tray with baking paper. You might need to bake the cookies in batches, or use several trays if you have a large oven.

Add the softened butter and sugar to a bowl. Cream them together until evenly mixed. Slowly add the beaten egg and vanilla. Beat well after each. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour and chocolate chips until just combined.

Glob a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough onto the baking tray. Leave space between each as the cookies will spread.

Check the oven has reached the correct temperature. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. The cookies are done when they are golden brown. Remove from the oven.

Let the cookies cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

BAKING TIPS:

  • Cookies will store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
  • The high sugar content means the cookies can burn quickly. Keep an eye on them closer to the baking end time.
  • Cookies tend to be soft fresh from the oven but harden as they cool.

Baking Tips

 

  • These cookies will store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
  • Watch the cookies as they approach the 8-10 minute baking time, as they can over-brown quickly.
  • Cookies tend to be worryingly soft fresh from the oven but they will harden a bit as they cool.
