I call these the ultimate chocolate chip cookies, because they are super easy to make and bake. They make the perfect pick me up, put a smile on your dial gift. They also happen to be dangerously moreish. Tip. to get super light airy cookies every time, cream butter and caster sugar until it looks similar to texture to whipped cream. Bake these strictly to the 8 minutes baking time.
Nice recipe, but not my idea of "ultimate" choc chip cookies. We like them, and I have made them twice. It's a very quick recipe to make, once the butter is soft. The raw cookie dough though is really really yummy! I liked them better when I used half the choc chips, and I also used mini choc chips. I rolled the dough in balls, and flattened them with my hands. They make very nice looking cookies too. - 03 Feb 2010
