“This recipe is from my Aunty Shelly, and has proven to be the best and quickest chocolate chip cookie recipe I have found. (and I'm a cookie monster!) I always set the timer for 6 minutes so as not to overcook them. Usually 6 - 7 minutes is enough - this way they end up soft and chewy, not crunchy. I have also added 3/4 cup oatmeal, which adds a nice crunch and is very tasty as well!”
36-40 cookies
