American Cookies


These cookies are like those huge ones you get in the coffee shop…


250g All purpose flour

1 pkt Baking soda (5mg)

170g Melted butter

220g Brown sugar

100g White sugar

1 pkt vanilla essence (5mg)

1 egg

1 egg yolk

100g Chocolate chips (use more if you wish)

A pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 165c and prepare the baking trays by either lining with grease proof paper or greasing with butter.

In a bowl sift the flour and the baking soda then add the pinch of salt and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, brown and white sugar.  Then beat in the vanilla and egg and the egg yolk until light and creamy.

Slowly add the flour and keep mixing until well combined.

Add the chocolate chips and fold in evenly.

Put about a large spoon of cookie dough on the tray.  Make sure to leave about 3 inches between as they do spread out. (I cooked 4 at a time).

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until crispy on the edges.  Do not worry if they don’t look cooked in the middle, they will soon harden up.  If you leave too much longer they will resemble bricks.

Once you remove from the oven, leave on tray for 5-10 minutes (otherwise they may break when lifted), then move to a wire rack to cool.


Warm slightly and add a large dollop of ice cream.

Try mixing in 2 teaspoons of peanut butter and/or a dash of caramel syrup after the chocolate chips.  Make sure you mix well.
