Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Warm, melted chocolate in a sweet, buttery frame just cannot be beat. If you want to go nuts, halve the amount of chocolate used and add an equal weight of chopped walnuts, pecans or macadamia nuts.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Grease 2 large baking trays.
  2. In a small bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and creamy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda over the mixture, stir to combine, then stir in the chocolate. Roll level tablespoons of dough into balls and place 2.5 cm (1 inch) apart on the prepared trays.
