Bambi and I tried our hand at baking over Christmas. He has been given a free pass from the doctor to eat whatever he wants, so we have been trying out recipes with milk. Touch wood! He’s been thriving.
I wanted to link this recipe by Joy Food Sunshine blog because it turned out absolutely perfect. We did not have chocolate chips so we added bits of leftover chocolate from two bars [We now finally have procured a packet of choco chips and can’t wait to try the recipe]. Even without the chips it was insanely good and so easy to make. We are both complete novices when it comes to baking, however, we found the recipe simple to follow, and easy to make. It yielded great results.
Our cookies had just the right amount softness, which did not harden with time. The sea salt gave them a lovely flavour. So, if you are on the lookout for a sure shot recipe – here is a tried and tested one.
