Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4. Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy. Beat the golden syrup into the butter and sugar with the vanilla essence.

Step 2

Mix in flour and chocolate chunks until just combined. Take a teaspoonful of the mixture, roll it into a ball, then place onto a greased baking tray, flattening it slightly with the palm of your hand.

Step 3

Repeat with the remaining dough, allowing plenty of room for the cookies to spread while baking. Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.

Step 4

Step 5

Cook's note To make double chocolate chip cookies, substitute 25g of flour with 25g cocoa powder.
