Recipe; Double Chocolate Cookies

These are the ultimate gourmet cookies: crisp on the outside, chewy and soft on the inside, and really simple to make! They also look adorable when cut into a gingerbread man shape.

225g butter, softened
400g caster sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
250g plain flour
65g best quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
300g white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the white chocolate chips. 

Leave the mixture in the fridge for 1/2 an hour, then roll out onto a flat clean surface, then cut with cookie cutter.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cookies are set. 

Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Overall; The cookies were definitely chewy and yummy.

I've made these cookies numerous times now and always go down well with family and my boyfriend.
