'Tis the season to be jolly... so we’ve put together this yummy easy home-bake cookie recipe for all the family (even Santa won’t be able to resist). A perfect Christmas treat!
120g Butter, (softened) – (*Use sunflower oil or a nut based butter as a vegan alternative)
75g Light Brown Sugar
75g Golden Caster Sugar
1 Medium Egg – (*Use 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce as a vegan alternative)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
180g Plain Flour – (*Use oat or rice flour as a gluten-free alternative)
½ Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
100g Dark Chocolate (cut into chunks)
100g Toffee Chunks
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line two baking sheets with parchment.
Cream the butter and sugars together until very light and fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla. Once combined, stir in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, chocolate, toffee chunks and ¼ tsp salt.
Scoop 10 large tbsps of the mixture onto the baking trays, leaving enough space between each to allow for spreading.
Bake for 10-12 mins or until firm at the edges but still soft in the middle – they will harden a little as they cool. Leave to cool on the tray for a few mins before eating warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
