First off an apology. Many of you will wonder why I am apologising an will be sitting thinking " just get to the recipe" but I feel I must apologise for being away so long. It has been months and although I doubt anyone has been on the edge of their seat waiting for another of my creations, to anyone who has I apologise dearly. Now that's over and done with onwards to the cookies.

Step 1: The Cookies
The first component of this cookie dessert creation is the cookie. For the cookie we need from our ingredient list:
-100g of butter
-150g of brown sugar
-150g of plain flour
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
-A pinch of salt
-100g of chocolate chips
Start by preheating your oven to 170 degrees Celsius or 340 Fahrenheit. I would suggest checking the temperature with a thermometer but it is not needed.
Now mix together the butter and brown sugar until it resembles the first picture.
Next add the egg and vanilla, mix, add the flour salt and bicarbonate until it is a dough.
If it is too sticky add more flour.
Once a dough is reached add the chocolate chips. It should resemble picture 6
Now dust your work surface with flour and roll the dough to desired thickness.
Cut this with your cookie cutter or glass to get nicely shaped cookies as in pictures 6 and 7
Place the cookies on to a baking tray lined with greased greaseproof paper.
Bake your cookies for 8-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
When removed from the oven they will feel soft but will harden when cooled.
