This chocolate chip cookies recipe is one of the favourites of the tiny & little crew. They love both the baking and the eating. The cleaning up? Not so much, unless of course there’s an overlooked chocolate chip in the mixing bowl…
As for me, I love that I can bake a batch of these in no time at all for a quick afternoon tea treat. When they’re fresh from the oven, and still warm on the inside so the chocolate buttons melt in your mouth, they’re especially enjoyed.
