  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (8 tablespoons) at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (see note 1)
  • 1 tablespoon liquid whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup flour (125g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a bowl, mix together butter and sugar until well incorporated. I used a fork to do this. Add the milk, egg and vanilla extract then beat together with a fork or an egg whisk.

  3. Add the flour, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Mix with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough. Scoop dough using a cookie scoop (or a tablespoon) and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Once the cookies come out of the oven, press some more chocolate chips into them if you wish.

Recipe Notes

1. You could replace chocolate chips with the same quantity of chocolate bars in this recipe. Roughly chop the bars and add to your cookie dough.

2. Note that the dough in this recipe is soft so you must use a tool (a cookie scoop or tablespoon) to scoop the dough and place on the cookie tray. Also, no need to try and form the cookie shapes before baking. They will get into shape as they bake.
