Choc Chip Cookies – Retro!


Retro Choc Chip Cookies

These Choc Chip Cookies are soooooo good. Not those dry crumbly old things, but all soft and gooey, just like a cookie should be. 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! …. Or 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 🙂

You’ll be everyones best friend!

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

Thanks Clare
