Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best! But not all chocolate chip cookies are equal.
Far superior in deliciousness and quality are chocolate chip cookies made with REAL chocolate, not compound or cooking chocolate.
My Nan brought me up on Women's Weekly recipes.
Whenever I stayed with her, we would go through her draw full of recipe clippings from the magazine and pick a sweet to make.
So they were my first choice when I went looking for a chocolate chip recipe to use with our Poppy's Chocolate buttons.
Now, I didn't want to discriminate between chocolates and I loved the idea of including a range of tastes and buttons in one cookie. So, this recipe was altered by me to include 75g each of ruby, caramel, dark, white and milk chocolate.
250g butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 1/4 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
375g chocolate couverture buttons - 75g each of ruby, caramel. dark. white, milk chocolate (couverture is quality chocolate made with cocoa butter not compound or cooking chocolate which is made with oil)
