I am a liar. I have a recipe on this blog called ‘best chocolate chip cookies in the world’. They’re not. These are.
The old cookies are good, don’t get me wrong. But they’re a bit like reflecting on boys you dated in high school. They were nice and all, but not the real deal. Is that appropriate? Meh.

Look what I did! Look look! So proud. Don’t worry, I’ve got step by step instructions for you too.
And yes, they do taste better than store bought. Promise.
I did lots of research on this one. Combined three different recipes, checked what my favourite baker puts in his. Then, I made them again tweaking the things I thought could have been improved from the first batch. I’ve got your back on this one. AND, I’ve got a chocolate chip version I’ll put up in a few days.
