Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies made by Arely Bakes

| Biscuits and Slices, Recipes from Arely Bakes

I like my chocolate chip cookies soft and chewy, how about you?  I don’t like ones out of a packet, they’re dry and hard and really don’t have much flavour.
Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
We just had a fairly quiet and awfully hot and humid weekend when we suddenly thought that we hadn’t done any baking for our channel – and we only had about 2 hours before we were heading out to Noosa’s End of Summer Festival by the river (and I can tell you I was looking forward to a river breeze and some nice cold wine!).
Unfortunately, Arely’s line up of recipes were all going to take too long to make when she suddenly suggested Chocolate Chip Cookies – perfect I said.  I had a recipe that I had been wanting to try out which promised to be soft and chewy, and I had all the necessary ingredients. Although it was far too hot to be cooking so I cooled myself down with an iced water under the fan before we got started!!
Cookie DoughI am happy to say that the cookie recipe turned out just as we had hoped, and although I made a half batch compared to the original recipe we still had plenty – 24 good sized cookies and 10 mini cookies.  You probably know by now I don’t like to make larges batches of baking because I don’t want to eat too much of it!  (Oh, and I have to add that my mum isn’t going to be impressed with me calling them Cookies!  It’s Biscuits, Chocolate Chip Biscuits – or Bickies.)
The End of Summer Festival was also a hit, and the wines went down far too quickly.
