As regular readers will know I have been trying to master the Choc Chip Cookie. The proper American style, crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle! Ever taunted by Millie's Cookies and spurred on by the marvellous creations of a friend of ours! She makes the greatest cupcakes ever, see photo for the ones we got to celebrate Farm Baby, but she is also queen of the cookie. Grr! PS see here AMAZING cupcakes here Aunt Tiffy's Bakery - was that a sneaky plug for a friends site and blog? You bet!!
But I refused to be beaten and after multiple - "well that tastes like a cookie but looks like a cake" (and visa versa) attempts - I finally succeeded! The excitement in our house that day was of the jumping around type. I have never been so happy to bake anything in my life! There is nothing for it but to share the recipe and have everyone dancing around their kitchens too. Share the joy....
Triple Choc Cookies
1/2 lb butter - room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs - room temperature

1 1/2lb of chocolate chunks - use whatever chocolate type you wish, I used a mix of white, plain and milk.
