While it's a great time for home cooking, you'd be forgiven for missing your favorite restaurants and takeaways right now. Take foot-long sandwich purveyor Subway, for example. For fans of this international chain, there's nothing more delicious than their famous double chocolate chip cookie. Until now, its recipe has been a closely guarded secret. Subway shares how to make double chocolate chip cookies that are (almost) as good as the real deal.

Following in the footsteps of other well-loved chains such as Wagamama, Subway decided to share some of their much-loved recipes on the Tastemade UK Facebook page. Read on for all the details on how to make double chocolate chip cookies at home.

raw material

  • 125g salted butter, softened
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium egg
  • 150g plain flour, sifted
  • 40g cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 200g milk chocolate, roughly chopped

step 1

Preheat the oven to 175°C. If you have an oven thermometer, use it to make sure the temperature is accurate. Line two large baking sheets with baking parchment to support your cookie dough.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine butter and both sugars. Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy, about three minutes.

third step

After gently whisking together the eggs and vanilla, add to the butter mixture a little at a time, beating until the mixture is well combined.

the fourth step

Using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir together the sifted flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. Then add the white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed. Make sure the mixture is not overused.

the fifth step

Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, divide mixture into 16 golf ball-sized portions. Roll equal-sized portions into balls and place on a lined baking sheet, at least 5cm apart to allow room to spread out.

Step 6

Bake for 12 minutes, until well spread and just set on the surface. They will still be soft initially, so let them cool. Leave on the tray for five minutes, then carefully transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Pro Tips

Although it's unlikely that anything will survive, if you want to store them in an airtight container, they'll last up to 7 days. Another good idea is to freeze the uncooked dough for later use, placing them on a lined baking sheet and baking as usual for ten to fifteen minutes.
