My daughter, Jessica, loves to bake. Ever since I can remember, she’s joined me in the kitchen at home. Of all her baking successes (and there have been many), this is the recipe that to date is the family’s favourite. Why ‘Messie’? Well, in all my years of cooking, I’ve never seen anyone more accomplished in getting every surface in the kitchen and herself covered in whatever she’s making. We ‘borrowed’ this recipe from Claire Clark, my friend and the world’s best pastry chef.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g unsalted butter, at room temperature
80g soft light brown sugar
80g granulated sugar
A pinch sea salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 medium egg
250g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
100g dark chocolate, chopped, (70% cocoa solids)
100g milk chocolate, chopped

Method

  1. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugars, salt and vanilla extract together until thoroughly combined. Add the egg and beat in well.
  2. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda over the mixture and mix until evenly combined. Finally, fold in the dark and milk chocolate buttons.
  3. Form the dough into a log, wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 3 hours to firm up.
  4. Preheat your oven to 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
  5. Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces and shape into balls. Place on the baking trays, leaving enough room in between for spreading. Bake for 15–20 minutes until golden.
  6. Leave the cookies on the trays for a minute or two to firm up slightly, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool – that is if you can resist eating them straight away.
