Emma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are sticky, gooey and everthing a chocolate chip cookie should be. This recipe makes 12 cookies, so you could double up if you want them to last more than an day!
The dough keeps well in the fridge or freezer, so you can prepare them quickly if visitors arrive unexpectedly over the holiday season.
