I have held a recipe for what I think is the most perfect chocolate chip cookies. If I ever make cookies I make this particular recipe. Sometimes I will try something different, but I never stray from this recipe when I make chocolate chip. Never. I have had this recipe for years. So I honestly cannot remember where exactly I got it from. Admittedly, I cannot take full credit for this recipe. However I also cannot pin point whose it is.

The other day I was feeling like something sweet and I thought why not treat the kids and myself to something, I mean, It was only just easter and all so why not make cookies. Yes, I am being sarcastic. I have used this recipe to make ice cream sandwiches before, which were delicious! This particular batch didn’t make it past a few hours!

The original recipe calls for 1/2 a cup each of the sugars but I have changed it to 1/3 and it is sweet enough. I plan on making a healthier version in the future, so stay tuned for that! I am telling you, they are the most perfect chocolate chip cookie. They aren’t soft or chewy or even crunchy, almost like a shortbread perhaps. Just try them. You will not regret it!

The Most Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • 150g Soft Butter
