Mel's Cookie

I'm posting this against my better judgement since I am going to lay off of sweets for 2 weeks! This is however, the easiest and yummiest cookie in the world to make. Make it your own by adding your favorite chocolate bar. 

Ingredients: Makes 12-14 rather large cookies 
125g unsalted butter (1/2 cup plus a tablespoon)
100g caster sugar (1/2 cup)
75g soft light brown sugar (1/3 cup)
1 medium egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla extract
150g plain flour (1 & 1/4 cups)
½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
100g dark or milk chocolate, chopped into smallish chunks (large candy bar chopped 1 cup)

How to make chocolate chip cookies
1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas 5/375 F and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment.
2. Gently melt the butter in a small saucepan. Put both sugars into a mixing bowl, pour in the melted butter and beat well with a wooden spoon. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and stir them in, then add the chocolate. You should have a pretty sloppy sort of mixture.
3. Dot heaped dessert spoonfuls of the mixture on to the baking sheets, leaving a good 4cm between them as they really spread out. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are turning pale golden brown.
4. Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheets for a couple of minutes to firm up. Then carefully lift the baking parchment on to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
