Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Im going to let you in on a little secret.
These are my all time favourite chocolate chop cookies and my go-to indulgent chocolate snack recipe.
The recipe was given to me by a client many moons ago. She used to make them for all the staff at the clinic occasionally and when she would bring them in, well we would all fall over ourselves in the delight of biting into their still warm, buttery softness.
When I was kindly gifted the recipe and I returned home to make them one rainy Winter’s morning, I discovered that I could not quite replicate the perfection.
So I messed a little with the recipe and found the by excluding 1/2 a cup of the flour success was finally mine.
I have included here for you, the original recipe. If you would like to make the perfect version then I suggest you exclude a 1/4 a cup of the SR flour and 1/4 cup of the plain flour. But if you really want the recipe to stretch, then go ahead and add it in. They are still delicious.
My favourite outcome is achieved when I chop up a block of good quality coverture chocolate into different sized pieces. It is so satisfying to bite into a big melty piece of chocolate nestled amongst the dough.
When I am in a rush though I just throw in those store bough chocolate chips. My most recent record for this recipe was 20 minute from beginning to end and it made for a much friendly afternoon snack than the biscuits my kids beg me to buy from the supermarket.

I cannot deny it, I like baking with chocolate.
