Choc Chip Cookies – Retro!

Retro Choc Chip Cookies

These Choc Chip Cookies are simply soooooo good.

Not those dry crumbly old things, but all soft and gooey, just like a cookie should be.

They are super easy and simple to make but yet exquisitly flipping delicious!

Go on have a go, or get the kids to have a go, I get pictures all the time of kids with their own baked cookies.

I love that – so if you do make them please please send a photo! ….

You know I think it’s really important that we teach our kids to cook!

Fundamentally one o the best things we can do? It’s such an important life skill!

Let the kids bake cookies 

So you could make them together, so quick and easy the kids love baking and it’s wonderful to watch them cook.

They get to eat them and I promise they won’t last long 🙂

I absolutely know that once you’ve shown them how to make them, they will be in the kitchen making them for the whole family!

And probably very often!


You’ll be everyones best friend if you serve these beauties!

Let me know what you think? I so love to get your comments!
