This is a cookie recipe I tried last week, I adapted it from a BBC recipe (as I didn't have all the right ingredients) but I suggest you use the sugar the recipe suggests, as I ended up with cookies that tasted of popcorn (I kid you not...) which you seemed to either love or hate!

Nonetheless, I thought I'd post the recipe, as apart from that (ironically the one thing I adapted) they came out really well, with a really good consistency- nice and soft in the middle with a crisp on the edge- delicious!

What You Will Need:

- 350g unsifted flour
- 1 teaspoon barcarbonate of soda-
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 225g butter
- 175g caster sugar
- 175g soft brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 350g dark chocolate crumbled (this could be changed for other extras of your choice; raisins, nuts, maybe even toffee?)

1. Preheat the oven to 190C!

2. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt.

3. In another bowl, combine the caster & brown sugar, butter and vanilla extract until well mixed and smooth.

4. Beat in the eggs, and gradually add the flour mixture.

5. Add your crumbled chocolate and stir until even and well mixed!

6. Now, you can either wrap the dough in cling film and store in the fridge (until you are ready to cook) or bake straight away. The recipe suggests 'rolling the dough into sausage shapes and then cutting the log into slices, widely spaced apart on your baking tray.' However, due to the fact I had recently invested in a bad-ass cookie cutter I spread it out like so to make perfect cutting material!

7. Bake for 9-12 minutes (or until crisp).

8. Cut into your amazing shapes (optional) and serve!
