Serves: 26 cookies1) Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6. Line 2 baking tins with parchment paper.
2) Whisk the flour, salt, and bicarbonate of soda in a medium bowl.
3) In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and then the vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, to make a soft dough. Stir in the chopped chocolate.
4) Spoon heaping tbsp of dough onto the prepared baking tin, spacing them about 7-cm apart (a standard tin can accommodate about 6 cookies). Bake the cookies until brown around the edges, about 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.
