I have been cooking too much Asian and Chinese food for the past few months. I almost forgot how I used to bake sweet treats such as blueberry muffins and chocolate lava cake, until I was recently reminded about the lack of bakes coming from the kitchen. It set me to remedy the situation right away, starting with these lovely chocolate chip cookies. I got the recipe from Women’s Weekly, one of my favourite cookbook series. It was a really easy recipe and I was successful at the first attempt. The original recipe called for 50g of coarsely chopped walnuts to be folded along with the chocolate chips, but I omitted that as we prefer our chocolate chip cookies without nuts.
