Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ok, let me just say these are delicious! I would actually either make them smaller than the recipe suggests, or put only 4 on a tray so they have plenty of room to spread. It's amazing how few ingredients these cookies need to be so yummy! I got this recipe from Rhythm of the Home, but they are by Jules Clancy from The Stone Soup.

(makes about 10 huge cookies)
5 oz (150 g) unsalted butter, softened
9 oz (250 g) light brown sugar
1 egg
8 oz (225 g) plain all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
225-285 g (8-10 oz) dark chocolate
Whizz butter and sugar in a food processor or stand mixer until light and creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined.
Add 3/4 teaspoon baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon bicarb soda to the flour and mix to combine.
Fold butter mixture into the flour until only just combined.
Chop chocolate into chunks and add to the dough. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes but no longer than 72 hours.
When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 180 C /350 F. Line two baking sheets or trays with parchment paper.
Scoop 1/3 cup balls of dough and place on the prepared trays. Allow plenty of room for them to spread. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt flakes. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cookies are golden. The bottom tray may need a little longer. Cool on the tray.
