Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Rubber spatula
  • Electric beater
  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • Cookie scoop

Ingredients
  

  • 115 gm Butter
  • 50 gm Castor sugar
  • 82 gm Brown sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 200 gm Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 50 gm Dark chocolate chunks
  • 50 gm Almonds toasted and chopped
  • 150 gm Chocolate easter eggs chopped

Instructions
 

  • 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.

Notes

  • 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.
