Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies


Arjun's summer holidays are almost coming to an end and I have to admit,I am gonna miss having him around all through the day.I do crib about clutter all around and tripping and falling on toys at any given point of time or answering about 100 questions a minute,so on and so forth.But the fact is,he is bored.He wants to meet his friends and do 'activities' with his teachers and play in the swing and slide in his school.


I was pleasantly surprised when one day while watching Peppa Pig,he asked me to make some Chocolate chip cookies because Mummy pig was making some for Peppa and George.How could I say no to such a request,in fact I was yearning for the day he starts asking me to bake stuff for him :)


So I have made a couple of Chocolate chip cookies before.But when do we ever stop searching for 'the best recipe'.I made this one a while back and I have to say,this one is 'my best version'.Perfect texture,even better looks and tastes absolutely delicious.I hope you give it a try too!
