Nigella's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't like a good chocolate chip cookie with a glass of cold milk? It's one of my favourite comfort food. So when Zoe (her blog is brilliant...guys you are missing out SO MUCH if you havent visited yet) of Bake for Happy Kids asked me to co-host Cook Like A Star  'Nigella' with her and the wonderful Joyce of KitchenFlavours (go visit NOW for your dose of scrumptious recipes), this was the first recipe that came to my mind. The reason being, this is the first recipe I tried out from Niglla's book 'Kitchen' which was gifted by my in laws. The resulting cookie was how a chocolate chip cookie should be..... tender, fudgy chewiness but an edge of crisp bite too. So without further ado, my baking friends, I present Nigella's to-die-for Chocolate Chip Cookies.....

Chocolate chip cookies
Adapted from Kitchen by Nigella Lawson
150grams soft butter (I used Amul butter)
125 grams soft light brown sugar (you can use Demerara sugar which is easily and widely available in India)
100 grams caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg, fridge cold
1 egg yolk, fridge cold
300 grams all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
326 grams chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Preheat the oven to 170 degree Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment or butter paper.
Melt the butter and let it cool a bit. Put the brown and caster sugars into a bowl, pour the slightly cooled, melted butter over them and beat together.
Beat in the vanilla, the cold egg and cold egg yolk until your mixture is light and creamy.
Slowly mix in the flour and baking soda until just blended, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough into an ice cream scoop and drop Ono the prepared baking sheet, popping the cookies down about 8 cms apart. Make the cookie in two or three batches depending upon the size of your oven. Keep the cookie dough in fridge between batches.
Bake for 15-17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Here are some of my baking buddies who have joined me for this 5 star event. Please visit their blogs and gorge on the delightful spread inspired by Nigella...or shall I say ready your senses for the onslaught of food porn :)
