These cookies are so soft, chewy and thick, and stuffed full of melting chocolate chips – my all-time favourite chocolate chip cookies!
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…
I hope you enjoy my favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and will become your favourite, too!
