Soft Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are a hearty kind of chocolate cookie – robust and perfect for taking on a picnic, although in the UK you might have to wait a while before you’d want to go on a picnic. They’re substantial, soft and more ‘cakey’ in texture than a classic CCC, but producing fail-safe results every time. This is a go-to recipe worth having as a back-up, giving you the means to make delicious scrummy homemade cookies in about 20 minutes.

Little S loves these cookies, so if the cookie jar is empty I tend to whip up a batch of these rather than trudging to the shops 😉

    Those. Look. So. Good. I’ve been looking for a new vegan cookie–do you think I could use oil instead of the melted spread?
