Golden Chocolate Chip Cookies!

The perfect cookie: Biscuity on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside... sweet and moreish!

What else can a cookie be?

I was so proud to have finally succeeded in making the 'perfect' cookie this week. Usually they would come out a bit too cakey or over done... but with help from A spoonful of sugar and some proper measuring equipment... eh voila! A stack of yumminess  :)
