沚ェ The ever popular Choc Chip Cookie can be re-invented in many ways. My mother has been making this choc chip cookie for us ever since I can remember. We grew up with the kitchen always smelling of something baking in the oven and that something was very often these crisp delicious nuggets of nostalgia filled to the brim with shards of chopped up chocolate. Cos back then you made your own chocolate chips. We would swipe them up still warm from the tray, the chocolate still slightly gooey and the biscuit still just a little squidgy in the middle. Biting into these warm discs was just thee most satisfying feeling. And later once cooled and crisp, they were dunked in a glass of cold milk to be savoured a second time 沚ェ
