- 2 ½ cups plus all-purpose flour/maida
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 12 tablesppoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 ½ cups chocolate chips ( you can break a frozen chocolate bar into bits too)
Add eggs, yolks and vanilla and blend by using a hand blender for about 10-20 secs
Add the dry ingredients slowly. Fold in the mixture. Add the chips and continue folding.
Roll the mixture in to a ball, it is not required to knead the dough.
Cover with cling wrap and place the mixture in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 150. Place the mixture as lemon sized balls on a flat baking tray greased with butter. The dough balls are more like blobs which need not have a smooth outer surface. Be sure to place them about 1 inch apart.
Let the cookies bake for 10-13 mins, they should seem slightly underdone as they continue to cook for a few mins more once out of the oven.
Cool for 20 mins and enjoy.
