Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies
My maternity leave is looming, so I thought a nice batch of homemade cookies for my colleagues would be a nice gesture before I departed. Don't worry I'll be back in 9 months!!

Ingredients
100g dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
100g golden caster sugar
75g soft brown sugar/ light muscavado sugar
1 free-range egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt

Method:
Step 1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Chop the chocolate into little chunks and set aside.
Step 2. Heat the butter in a small saucepan very gently until it has just melted. Meanwhile, put the two types of sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour the melted butter on top of the sugars and beat well with a wooden spoon.
Step 3. Add the egg and the vanilla and beat until well blended.
Step 4. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl and stir them in, then add the chopped chocolate.
Step 5. Dot heaped pudding spoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking sheets, leaving plenty of space in between them--they really spread out while baking.
Step 6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are just turning golden brown.

Best served straight from the oven with a nice cuppa!!
