Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies

These are Eddy Halmagyi’s recipe from Better Homes and Gardens’ Better Basics magazine. I needed some cookies to share for playgroup today. They turn out flatter than I expected and way too sweet to be honest. I’d reduce the amount of butter and sugar next time. It gets crispier if you leave it in the oven for a few minutes longer.

250g unsalted butter, softened
110g caster sugar
180g dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
350g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g dark chocolate chips or chocolate broken into chunks
100g white chocolate chips or chocolate broken into chunks
150g roughly chopped nuts

1.          Preheat oven to 180C. Line oven trays with baking paper.
2.          Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy.
3.          Add vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth.
4.          Sift flour and bicarb into butter mixture. Do not overmix.
5.          Fold in chocolate and nuts.
6.          Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and put on trays. Press flat.
7.          Bake for 12-14 minutes or until just set. Cool completely on wire racks.
