cheer me up cookies

Chocolate is always the answer for a lil pick me up – so I thought I’d try out this choc chip cookie recipe I’d seen at Cupcakes and Cashmere. The only cookies I make are American recipes, because I like how they’re chewy and soft on the inside – much like a Subway cookie, but better.

Chopped up Cadbury Energy chocolate makes the best chocolate chips.

I also wanted to make these because I’d had a couple of baking fails with a certain recipe that I will not tell you about until I am successful. As a result though my baking confidence had taken a bit of a dive, so I needed to make something really easy to get me back to feeling OK about my baking self.

The boyfriend ate about 5 as soon as they came out of the oven, so I can safely say they’re pretty good.

    Yeah I love American recipes too! I made stuff from Kiwi books like The Edmonds and they were always too flaky and dry.

    Looks really good Lani 😀

    Looking good Lanz! I wanted to make choc chip cookies yesterday too, but the rest of the family weren’t really feeling that, so I did choc fudge brownies instead. Let me know when you want to try that failed recipe out!
