About this recipe: The BEST chocolate chip cookies ever! I have been testing ingredients for a long time. I use a wooden spoon to mix these, as the texture seems to be so much better. This makes a big batch, which is great for bringing to work, cake sales, school fetes or simply freezing for later!

These were more like shortbread cookies with chocolate chips in than chewy cookies - the biscuit was far too short! I won't be making them again. - 22 Jun 2013
