Makes 14 (I ended up with 20)
Baking time: 12-15 minutes
150g plain chocolate chips150g white chocolate chips
140g butter150g caster sugar
1 egg½ tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour1 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180oC/fan oven 160oC/Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease two baking sheets or line them with baking paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract. Sift in the flour and baking powder together and beat into the mixture. Add the chocolate chips and stir until well combined.
Drop 5-6 rounded tablespoons of the dough on to each baking sheet, spacing well apart, as the cookies will almost double in size.
Bake until golden, 12-15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to five days.
