If you love chocolate chip cookies then this recipe is just for you!

Funnily enough I came across this recipe while gathering ingredients to start baking some chocolate chip cookies. The recipe was on the back of a box of chocolate chips that I was about to use. I still had not found that perfect choc-chip cookie recipe and as an avid baker I am always willing to try new recipes to find the ‘one’.

The final product was a batch of the most amazing homemade chocolate chip cookies I have ever baked! I had to hide the cookie jar to prevent my boyfriend and I from eating them all in one go.

I have finally found my chocolate chip cookie recipe! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
