Large mixing bowl
50gm Castor sugar
82gm Brown sugar
50gm Dark chocolate chunks
50gm Almondstoasted and chopped
150gm Chocolate easter eggschopped
Preheat the oven to 180 ℃. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper and set aside.
In a large bowl cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar for a couple of mixtures until pale and creamy. Add the egg, vanilla and cream again.
Add the flour and beat until just combined. Add all the other add ons. Fold it through with the rubber spatula and start scooping onto the lined tray.
Bake these cookies for 10-12 mins until the top has risen and the edges are golden brown. They will be soft when you take them out of the oven and that is a good thing as they will firm up once they cool down.
While they are still warm using a large mouthed glass to circle around the cookie on the tray to bring them back into a perfect round shape. Transfer to a wire rack and cool before serving.
Cream the butter and sugars well, this given a light and airy texture to the cookie.
Chop your add ons uniformly before adding for even distribution in the dough.
I use a cookie scoop as it works best to portion the dough evenly but you can use tablespoons and roll the dough between your palms.
Do not over bake the cookies as they will firm as they cool down.
