Easy Step by Step Instructions
Let us guide you step by step to baking our Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Preheat your oven to 160 degree centigrade or Gas 3 and line your baking trays with grease proof paper.
You can place all your ingredients into small plastic containers or cups if you want to be well prepared.
Stir in brown sugar and caster sugar.
Stir until smooth and sugar has mostly dissolved.
Lightly beat the egg with a whisk or fork.
Add beaten egg to bowl. Stir into the sugar mixture.
Add the self raising flour through the sieve to the clear bowl.
Then add the baking powder through the sieve to the bowl.
Then add the plain flour to the bowl through the sieve.
Pour the clear bowl of flour and baking soda mixture into your mixing bowl.
Start mixing until all the flour is absorbed into the mixture and you have a nice light brown texture.
(If the mixture is a little dry, you can add a little more melted butter)
Now add the milk chocolate chips into the bowl and stir and blend them into the mixture.
Put your cooking trays on your worktop and using the ice cream scoop add 6 scoops to the tray lined with baking paper. Your giant chocolate cookie awaits!
Keep your scoops about 2 or 3 inches apart as they will expand in the oven.
If you want small cookies select a small amount of mixture, for large cookies scoop a large amount of mixture onto the tray.
Once you’ve filled 2 or 3 baking trays with the mixture, using the spatula pat the top of the mixture down a little.
Now open the oven door with oven gloves and place the baking trays into the oven for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes check the mixture is a golden brown colour and remove the baking trays with oven gloves on. Place the baking trays on a solid surface.
Then using the spatula transfer the cookies onto the greaseproof cooling racks.
Leave for a further 5 minutes.
You’ve just baked Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies with a crispy edge and a nice and soft chewy center.
Stack the cookies onto a large plate or tray, serve with soft drinks, milk or a large coffee; yum! Or check out our favorite food blogs that will give you other delicious baked goods.
