Before Barry and I had the girls, I fantasised I was a Mrs Cunningham (come on – you know, Happy Days) type of Mama that had a glass of cold milk and a chocolate chip cookie (still warm from the oven) ready for my littlies as soon as they stepped off the school bus. The kiddies would sit in the kitchen eating their cookies, sipping their milk, and they would pour out to me all the fun and excitement and hurts and frustrations from their day. Yes, of course, I live in fantasy-land some days, but it does sound lovely, right?!
After much trial and error, I’m pretty sure that today I can share with you the yummiest chocolate chip cookie recipe. This one is adapted from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook (which is filled with all sorts of easy and yummy baked goodies).
It’s very simple (and quick) to make, and the only changes I have made to the recipe is to increase the amount of salt, as I have discovered a little saltiness seems to enhance the rich chocolate flavour. I also increased the amount of vanilla… (why? Because I love vanilla and I’m a firm believer that more is more!)
If you give the recipe a go, please let me know what you think. And if you have a favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe that you’d like to send to me, I’d love to give it a go.
