These cookies are so soft. Almost melt-in-your-mouth soft, but not too soft that theyย 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 placeย onto a baking tray. Bake for 10 – 12ย minutes, and done! Deliciously warm, thick cookies stuffed with melting chocolate chips…

    Your favorite chocolate chip cookies look absolutely incredible! I love how they look sort of light and airy, but also perfectly indulgent as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 hasnโ€™t been covered by the dough. You canโ€™t beat a soft chewy chocolate chip cookie.

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

    Hi, i would like to make these for a party..is it better to prep the dough and put it in the fridge and bake when needed or bake the cookies and heat when required?

      Hi Naheela! It’s entirely up to you. Cookies will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen for an extra minute. Personally, I would keep refrigerated, and bake them on the day I’ll be serving them ๐Ÿ™‚
