I titled these cookies as my favourite chocolate chip cookies because I didn’t want to name them the BEST chocolate chip cookies, even if I believe they are 😉 Everyone has there ideal chocolate chip cookie recipe, and this one is mine.

These cookies are so soft. Almost melt-in-your-mouth soft, but not too soft that they fall apart. They are deliciously chewy, and are just the right thickness. If you’re looking for thin, and crispy cookies, look elsewhere!

Another super quick and easy recipe. Simply whisk the dry ingredients together, then in another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Combine the dry and wet ingredients together, fold in the chocolate chips, roll the dough into balls, and place onto a baking tray. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, and done! Deliciously warm, thick cookies stuffed with melting chocolate chips…

    My husband is the baker at our house, so I don’t have a favorite cookie recipe… Maybe I should pass this one along to him; it does look delicious! Gorgeous photos, too 🙂

    Your favorite chocolate chip cookies look absolutely incredible! I love how they look sort of light and airy, but also perfectly indulgent as well. 🙂 That golden color is just perfection, isn’t it? Super interesting to see that you added in a bit of cornflour too. Thanks for sharing your baking genius as always Marsha. Of course, I’ll be pinning this! Have a great week!

    They look great, Marsha. I love how the chocolate hasn’t been covered by the dough. You can’t beat a soft chewy chocolate chip cookie.

    I made some with brown butter, and they were fab too.

      Caster sugar is superfine sugar, but you can also use granulated sugar 🙂
