The basic toll house recipe is a very good start. (http://www.verybestbaking...)

One issue you may have in the UK is selecting the right brown sugar. As I recall, most of the brown sugar there has pretty large crystals, which makes it difficult to properly cream the butter and sugar, which is key to getting the right texture. You want a pretty dark brown sugar with small crystals. If you can't find one that is suitable, you can easily make your own by adding molasses (dark treacle) to a fine white sugar (castor sugar). When you cream the butter and sugar you should end up with a smooth paste with no graininess when you rub a bit between your fingers.

I love me some cookies! Here's a great chewy chocolate chip cookie. And I'm sure if you under cook it a bit, it'll be really gooey!
