Chocolate Chip Cookies

When it comes to baking I am ok, not great but can follow a simple recipe but one thing that has always caused me issues is cookies.

I don’t know what it is about them but they are either under cooked or so over cooked that by the time they’ve cooled they are likely to cause and injury or broken tooth.

However we finally hit some success last week with my cookie recipe (we’ll just ignore the trip to A&E with suspected broken wrist after I accidentally turned my kitchenaid on whilst removing the attachment…)

These are not only easy but super tasty too!

    Excellent recipe. Thank you! I always appreciate the extra info such as ‘these will come out soft to touch but will firm up when cooled’ as I have overcooked many a tray of biscuits in my day.
