Baking Marathon- Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Posted by Quinn at Friday, April 25, 2008

This is another item I baked on Anzac day. Coles was selling good quality chocolates nearing to expiry. And I personally think a chocolate chunk cookies would taste heaven rather than chocolate chip cookies. Big pieces of chocolate chunks is the way to go! Crispy at the edges, chewy at the center. Do try it out!

Portion A
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Portion B
1 cup pure butter, softened (I dump it into the microwave for 15sec)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Portion C
2 large eggs at room temperature
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

250g of your favourite chocolates, chopped into random chunks (I used Swiss Mahony Chocolates and it tasted very much like Toblerone; in fact, better than Toblerone, seriously.)

1) Preheat oven to 190°C and line baking trays with baking paper.
2) Mix Portion A and set aside.
3) Cream together Portion B until smooth (until you see no lumpy butter)
4) Pour in Portion C (lightly beated and well combined with vanilla extract)
5) Fold in Portion A alternatively with the chocolate chunks (end with flour mixture)
6) Scoop out a heaped spoon of batter with ice-cream scoop onto prepared tray.
7) Bake for 10mins until slightly browned.
8) Let it cool in tray for 10mins before transferring to wire rack (*important step!)

Cookies cooling on wire rack.

*I was impatient and tried transferring real hot cookies onto wire rack and they were so soft that they brittled and wouldn't hold its shape. So, just leave it in tray for 10mins and don't touch it!

Yield about 30 1-inch in size cookies.
