Chocolate chip cookies
If you like American-style cookies, you’ll love these pale, chewy delights. Plus, they can be baked from frozen

200g unsalted butter, at room temperature
90g golden caster sugar
90g light muscovado sugar
1 egg
230g self raising flour
100g plain chocolate - roughly chopped
½ tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5 and take 2 non-stick baking sheets out.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugars, butter and egg until smooth

Mix in the flour, chocolate and cherry pieces (if using) and salt.

Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheets in large rough blobs – you should get 20 out of the mixture. Space the cookies out well as they grow substantially as they bake.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until just golden but still a little pale and soft in the middle.

The raw dough can be frozen - if baking from frozen, give them a more minutes to cook.

Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes and then lift them onto racks with an egg lifter and leave to cool completely.
