I can’t stress enough to use top-quality Belgian chocolate chips for this recipe and I will highly recommend at least 70% cocoa.

Here is the recipe :


150 gm All-purpose flour
100 gm self-raising flour
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
120 gm cold unsalted butter
75 gm brown sugar
75 gm caster sugar
200 gm chocolate chips
50 gm walnuts
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt


Whisk butter and sugar (caster & brown) for 4 minutes until nicely mixed. Add egg and vanilla extract and whisk.
Add walnuts, and chocolate chips and mix.
In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients and sift.
Gradually add the flour mixture turn and mix just to combine. Don’t over-mix the cookie dough. Roll dough into balls and don’t flatten them.
Chill them in the fridge at least for 2 hours before baking.
Preheat the oven to 185 deg C with the baking tray inside the oven, once the oven is preheated place the cookie dough balls on the tray. Gently press a few extra chocolate chips into the top of the balls of dough before baking.

Bake thw cokkies for 16-18 minutes. You’ll know the cookies are done once the edges are golden brown.
For gooey center don’t overbake the cookies.
