Eric Lanlard's chocolate chip cookies recipe

These sweet cookies always remind me of my first trip to the USA where they sell them everywhere straight from the oven ……

Eric's tips:

I use an ice cream scoop to measure my cookie dough so they are all the same size.

Alternative ideas and filling:

  • Replace 50gr of flour by 50gr of pure sift cocoa powder to make double choc cookies.
  • Add 100gr of chopped macadamia nuts and mix white and dark chocolate chips to make the most moreish macadamia cookies.
  • Replace the 325gr of chocolate chips by 200gr of rolled oats and 125gr of chopped dry cranberries and add a tsp of ground cinnamon for the perfect Christmas cookies.
  • Add 1 mashed really ripe banana to the mixture and replace half of the chocolate chips with rolled oat meal.
  • Replace half of the chocolate chips with desiccated coconut. For this amazing Bounty cookie
  • Replace the melted butter by melted chunky peanut butter and replace the chocolate chips by chopped walnuts.  As the cookies come out of the oven drizzle some clear honey over them ….ultimate indulgence!!!!!

Step-by-step

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas mark 3. Grease baking trays or line with parchment.
  2. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking trays, with each cookie around 2 tablespoons of dough. Do not flatten the dough as they will do that by themselves
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly golden. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
