    Absolutely delicious and very popular, they barely last a day in this house! I use 200g of choc chips and vary between white, milk and dark chocolate. Tip is to not overcook them.... definitely no more than 8 minutes in a fan oven on 180 degrees and take them out just as the edges are browning because even though they may not look fully cooked, they continue to cook when you take them out. If you don't do this the cookies will be more crunchy than chewy. Leave them to cool on the baking tray before transferring them to a cooling rack for at least 5 minutes so they don't bend.  -  21 Apr 2013


    never been any good at making biscuits or cookies but this worked brilliantly I swapped the chocolate chips for m&'s and used smaller scoops on the tray because they do spread so make sure they are well spaced out  -  24 Mar 2013


    tried this recipe, followed perfectly and went horribly wrong. The cookies spead all over the train and taste horrible, also look very un appealing.  -  13 Jan 2013
