Method:

  1. Cream melted butter and sugar until combined.
  2. Beat in egg, egg yolk and vanilla until light and creamy.
  3. Sift in flour, bicarb and salt. Mix until just blended.
  4. Mix in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop spoonsful onto lined baking trays and bake for 15-20 mins

To get the cookie to hold themselves you need the dough to be thick – if necessary, add more flour.

Depending on how soft you want them, you can adjust the time they bake for. For really soft cookies check them at 10 mins if they’re cracked on top they’re ready. They’ll look undercooked  but that’s what they’re supposed to look like. once they cool they’ll harden up. For crispier, chewier cookies leave them in for at least 20 mins.
