A friend had kindly pointed out that it's been a while since my last post. Truth is I'm having trouble juggling my lifestyle, so indulgent baking was neglected. Thanks to my social committements, I'm forced to go find my flour.
To get back into the groove, I turned to the most basic chocolate chip cookies for a potluck and a "thank you" gift to our neighbour.
Tip: to get soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies that don't turn rock hard the next day, use brown sugar. Whether you substitute half of the sugar in the recipe or all, it will make a difference. Half brown sugar will give you a softer cookie that stays soft for longer. All brown sugar will give you a chewier texture.
What's better than a chocolate chip cookie from the oven??? Absolutely nothing. My neighbour had 5 in one sitting.
