This has been my standard biscuit recipe for years. These are the perfect comfort food.
I learned a long time ago that there are a few essential ingredients needed to bake the perfect chocolate chip cookie. You must include an egg, a hefty dose of peanut butter and a lot of good quality dark chocolate. No skimping !!
I also like to make my cookies quite large. This way I can (usually!) stop at one and savour every mouthful. Tea time needs to be an event, not a hasty gulp and grab as you race out the door.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. For lovers of the chocolate / peanut butter combo, these will be irresistible.
