Tim tam chocolate chunk cookies

Earlier this week, we were invited to a friend's place for a pot luck dinner. After scouring through our pantry to see what I could throw together, I remembered we had some tim tams that I'd bought a while ago which we hadn't used up (they were the Messina range of tim tams, which to my disappointment were not as good as normal tim tams, and definitely nowhere near as good as Messina). However, I thought that adding these into a cookie recipe could be a good way to use them. So, after a bit of googling, I discovered a few recipes for tim tam cookies, one of which I've adapted below.

You'll need:

- 110g of butter, softened
- 1/2 a cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 a cup of white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla essence
- 1 3/4 cups of plain flour
- 1/2 a teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 a block of dark chocolate (about 100g), cut into chunks
- 10 tim tams, halved

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, then add the butter, brown sugar and white sugar to a bowl.

2. Beat the butter and sugars together until combined, then add the egg and vanilla to combine.

3. Add the flour, salt and baking soda until all combined, then mix in the chocolate chunks with a spoon.

4. Take a spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball (slightly flattened), and repeat with remaining mixture (it should make about 20 cookies).

5. Add half a tim tam to the top of each cookie and press it into the dough.

6. Bake for about 10 minutes, then enjoy!
