chocolate chip cookies

Its a classic that I think every self respecting soul should be able to make.It is a bit of a calorie bomb...I,m gonna try to make a healthier version of this in the future(note to self)...but they are seriously yummy...
337g flour
225g sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 free range egg
50ml of golden syrup
150g of butter
100g(or one handful)of chopped dark chocolate
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cocoa
1 tablespoon of water

Cream the butter and sugar together.Beat in the egg and add syrup and water.
Mix with the other ingredients together to form a dough.Form into big sized walnuts.
Place on greased baking trays a good 2 inches apart(they expand a lot) and press down a wee bit with a fork.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 10 minutes.Cool on a wire tray.
Any smarty pants out there will have noticed this is a copy of the ginger biscuits(3 feb 2009)..but that is the joy of a good recipe you can take something out ,throw in another and you know it will work..
