Baking for Beginners: Crisps & Chocolate Cookies

I like crisps.

I like chocolate. 

I like cookies.

I am freaking OUT about putting crisps and chocolate into a cookie. UH-HUH. You read that correctly: I have put crisps (four packets of ready salted, to be precise) in biscuits. And they taste A to the W to the E to the S to the O... yeah, you get it. They taste really good. It's like taking three amazing foods, and combining them to make one all-conquering, epochal wonderfood. I am not even exaggerating this time. 

Crisps & Chocolate Cookies (makes 20-22)
You will need:
  • 220g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1½ tsps vanilla extract
  • 100g ready salted crisps (crinkle cut for preference), roughly bashed into small pieces
  • 90g milk chocolate, cut into small chunks
  • 250g plain flour
  • A pinch of sea salt to sprinkle
Make it!
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line two baking trays with parchment.
  2. Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the crisps, chocolate and flour and gently mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until the ingredients start to combine. Do not overmix!
  3. Scoop a dessertspoonful of dough into your palm. Roll into a ball, then flatten slightly on to the baking tray. Repeat until you have about 20 little cookies. Sprinkle with sea salt, possibly with a flamboyant flourish and a shrug of the shoulders. 
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
  5. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack until cool.
  6. Marvel. Simply marvel. Perhaps swoon awhile.

  1. Laura, if it was anyone other than you, I'd be dismissing this as sheer folly. As I slavishly follow everything you do, I will clearly be making these tonight and bolting them down while they're hot.

  3. IMPORTANT QUESTION: could I replicate this by eating a bag of Walkers and half a packet of Maryland cookies at the same time?
