The how to: (you should include this on a decorated card or something ok?)

Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 15 mins
Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas mark 3. Grease baking trays or line with parchment.
Sift together the flour, bicarb and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking trays, with each cookie around 4 tablespoons of dough (for smaller cookies, drop 1 rounded tablespoonful and adjust baking time as necessary). Do not flatten the dough. Cookies should be about 8cm apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
DRY INGREDIENTS JAR ASSEMBLY: first you'll had the flour, then the baking powder or bic. of soda,salt,the brown soft sugar,the caster sugar and finally the chocolate chips.

After that comes the label decorating, either handmade or printed, the top cover and the recipe card, just don't worry to much about it, and be sure to have fun making this :)

See you lot soon.
