  • Easy
  • Serves 6 – 8

  • Freezable (unbaked)



  • 200g butter at room temperature, plus extra for the pan
  • 250g light brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 275g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g chocolate chips
  • 100g other cookie fillings, such as pretzels, chopped nuts, pieces of fudge or toffee, marshmallows
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Tip the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl, beat until combined, then stir in the yolks and vanilla. Tip in the flour, baking powder, chocolate chips, a pinch of sea salt and any other fillings you want to add. Mix until a crumbly dough forms.

  • STEP 2

    Lightly butter a 25cm ovenproof frying pan. Spoon in and flatten the cookie mixture. For a gooey dessert, bake for 20 mins, leave to rest for 5 mins, then scoop straight from the pan and serve with ice cream, if you like. For a firmer cookie you can cut, bake for 30 mins, then leave to cool completely before cutting into wedges.
