I love Chocolate chip cookies! I love them warm and crispy around the edges and soft in the middle. Something so delicious should not be so easy to make and raw cookie dough is just as good! My favorite is dark chocolate chips and the ultimate is triple choc cookies.
I have made different recipes but I love I can make them with melted butter and not have to beat the butter first. This has been my go to recipe for a while, its quick easy and delish. The recipe does say to sift flour and baking soda but sometimes I just cant be bothered sifting and it can be messy, but I always sift the baking powder just in a little sifter because having a chunk of baking powder in the cookies is very unpleasant.
When I make the dough its usually for a treat and I don’t use all the dough. I wrap the left over dough in cling wrap and put it in the freezer for later use. I usually roll it into a log so I just cut what ever portions I need. You can freeze in any way you prefer, in balls on a tray or container so all you have to do is pop 1 or 5 in the oven when needed. The time straight from freezer is only an extra minute or two in the oven.
When the kids have gone to bed and my husband and I are looking for a treat I make this
Ice cream sandwich with cookies and cream ice cream. Best eaten straight away when cookies are still warm.
