Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies |allrecipes.com

Hey friends!

I’m more of a music aficionado than a baker, but this past week I decided to see if I could do some simple chocolate chip cookies. I found an easy to follow recipe from allrecipes.com and ‘whisked’ away! There are a couple of things I did differently. Instead of only using milk chocolate chips, I also used white chocolate chips because why not? The more chocolate, the better! I also added a quarter cup extra brown sugar to sweeten the cookies a bit more. The dough should be smooth, but not too watery. I found that I added a bit too much flour so I softened it with warm water and some milk to get the right consistency. I also did not add the walnuts that the recipe called for because my guests had allergies. However, do let me know how the cookies taste with the added flavour!

Another tip from my experience – add a little extra baking soda. The recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon, but my cookies turned out quite flat compared to the picture on the website! I’d double that to get the dough to rise a bit more. Voila, below are my masterpieces. They may not look super appealing, but they were delicious!
