  • About

These American style cookies are best eaten while still warm – 10 minutes after they emerge from the oven. Chunks are like chips of chocolate, only bigger.


  • 5 oz (150 g) plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder


  1. Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt.
  2. Beat the butter, sugars, vanilla and egg until fluffy.
  3. Blend in the flour, then the chocolate chunks and nuts. Chill this mixture for at least 1 hour to prevent overspreading during baking.
  4. Drop the mixture in heaped tablespoonfuls on to an ungreased baking sheet, about 2 in (5 cm) apart.
