Using store cupboard staples, this recipe is inspired by Subway®’s Double Chocolate Cookies, and made in partnership with Tastemade.
Subway-inspired Double chocolate cookies
Ingredients – makes 16
- 125g salted butter, softened
- 100g light brown sugar
- 75g granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 medium egg
- 150g plain flour, sifted
- 40g cocoa powder, sifted
- Half a tsp baking soda
- 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
- 200g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
- Preheat the oven to 175°C.
- Line two large baking trays with baking parchment.
- In a big bowl, combine the butter and sugars.
- Beat together using a wooden spoon, until the mix is creamy, light and fluffy.
- Lightly beat the egg and vanilla together.
- Add this to the creamy mixture a little at a time, beating until well combined.
- Fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda until just combined.
- Add the chopped chocolate and mix through until evenly distributed.
- Be careful not to overwork the mixture.
- Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, divide the mixture into 16 golf ball size portions.
- Place the balls into lined baking trays, spaced at least 5cm apart.
- Depending on the size of the trays, this may need to be done in batches.
- Bake for 12 minutes until well spread out and just set on the surface.
- The cookies will still be quite soft, but will firm up as they cool.
- Leave on the tray for 5 minutes, then carefully transfer to a cooling rack.
- If you can resist them, the cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to a week.
- When ready to bake, simply preheat the oven, place the frozen cookies onto a lined baking tray and bake from frozen for 10-15 minutes.
** To have freshly baked cookies at the drop of a hat, freeze the unbaked, shaped cookies.
