Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Simple is usually best. Warm cookies are the best comfort food and I made a batch on Friday night. Turns out they were perfect to enjoy with the rainy weather and a cup of tea as well. These cookies are slightly salty, with brown sugar and masses of chocolate chips. I highly doubt I'll ever need another recipe. Enjoy. 

Chocolate chip cookies (adapted from Cupcakes and Cashmere)
2 3/4 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
225g butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
340g milk chocolate chips
  1. Beat the butter, sugars and vanilla until light and creamy. Add the egg and mix until combined.
  2. Add the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Mix until combined.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Cover and refrigerate mixture for 1 hour (skip this step if rushed).
  5. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Grease baking trays.
  6. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on tray. Push down each slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Let cool on tray for 5 minutes and then cool completely on wire rack.
