I fondly remembered these chocolate chip cookies mum use to bake for us over our childhood so I decided to dig out the recipe and make them for the kids.
These cookies have a soft chewy morish texture, to make these next level delish I would swap out the chocolate chips for chunks of Whittaker’s 50% chocolate!
What I loved about them was the fact they were perfectly round and mum use to roll the mixture in a long roll and sliced the cookies to bake!
As I child I remember how impressed I was that Mum use to store a couple of the cookie logs in the freezer, to whip out whenever she needed some fresh baking.
I also loved the fact they weren’t cookies with a fork imprint, something I didn’t like since a child! Isn’t it funny the things you don’t appreciate from a young age!
This recipe does make a large batch of cookies, you could easily freeze half the batch for when you need that fresh baked cookie hit!
