I grew up with this recipe… in fact, I think we probably had these cookies in our house almost everyday! I don’t know where my mum got this recipe from, because it’s not your typical chocolate chip cookie recipe, but it’s a winner. I hope you enjoy making them – oh, and by the way, they taste really good as frozen cookie dough balls!
