These are my husband's favourite chocolate chunk cookie - raisins are his bag. If you're not a fan, you can omit or add a handful of walnuts instead. But what's not to love about a chewy chocolate chunk cookie studded with sweet chewy raisins? Trust me, these cookies are the real deal.
  • 225g unsalted butter, softened
  • 200g light brown sugar
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 275g wholemeal flour
  • 1¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • large pinch sea salt
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 75g milk chocolate
  • 100g raisins
  1. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 mins. Add the egg and yolk, beating til combined, then fold in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Stir in the chocolate and raisins, transfer to an airtight container and chill for a minimum of four hours.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan and line two trays with baking parchment. Scoop out heaped tablespoons of dough, flatten slightly and bake for 10 - 12 mins, until firm and golden at the edges and just set in the middle. Allow to cool completely on the trays then store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
