Recipes || Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When I think of the gifts my people (Americans) have given to the world, one of the best is certainly the chocolate chip cookie. Next time you eat one, thank the nearest American. Chef Ruth Wakefield came up with her Toll House recipe in the 1930s. 

Chocolate chip are my absolute favourite type of cookie, for many reasons. One because they are the best. And two, for many nostalgia purposes. My mom making chocolate chip cookies would make any day better. She sent me off back to university every term-time with a tin of new cookies. Being on sleepovers and eating raw cookie dough and that being the pinnacle of foodstuffs.

Chocolate chip cookies are the king of cookie. I’m not talking about their weird-hard brethren (like Chips Ahoy) but perfectly soft, maybe even slightly warm chocolate chip cookies. So here’s a slight variation on a classic: Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    • Ohh, I don’t often bake with white chocolate but I’m sure it would still be tasty! I might throw in a few nuts otherwise they might be overly sweet. x
