My Fave Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by KT_Z4571

Mum has been making this recipe since I was just little. It's the BEST! Sometimes I substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 of white. It makes the cookies a little chewier. I also like a lot of vanilla, so I generally use 2 cap-fulls when I make these.

Super easy to make - a great afternoon project for kids, or a quick treat for anyone else! We took a 15 minute break from Scrabble and were able to make these and munch on them within that time. One thing we did do is halve the amount of white sugar and use milk chocolate chunks (larger than chips) and the recipe adapted very well - thanks for posting!
