Ingredients to make Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour / maida
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup butter - softened to room temperature
A pinch of salt - skip it if using salted butter
½ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
½ cup chocolate chunks / chips (or a mix of both!)
Method of making Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Preheat oven to 175°C on bake mode.
Start with lightly creaming the butter and sugar - not completely dissolving the sugar granules.
Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add milk & vanilla extract and mix.
The cookie dough will be lumpy, bring together lightly – without working it too much. Chill the cookie dough for some time (recommended – also, learnt the hard way).
Make 1 inch balls from the dough and place on a lined baking tray. Flatten very slightly and bake in the centre rack position at 175°C for 12 - 15 mins.
Remove from oven and cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a flat surface.
The cookies will be slightly soft when removed from the oven but will harden in a few minutes. An easy way to know that the cookies are baked, is when the edges start to brown.
I used the same recipe to make cardamom cookies, replacing ½ cup of chocolate chunks with 1 tbsp cardamom powder.
Use the basic recipe, without additions / flavourings, to make butter cookies.
