Chewy, gooey, choc-chip cookies

While looking through my baking drawer this afternoon I discovered I had a full packet of chocolate chips just sitting there, which was perfect as I suddenly had a craving to bake some chocolate chip cookies!

Usually I use caster sugar when making cookies or biscuits but I only had a small amount so I also added dark soft sugar to the butter – turns out this makes the cookies extra rich and gooey! I was a bit of a lazy baker this afternoon, I didn’t really measure any of the ingredients just judged by sight the amounts and although I think I used slightly too much butter they’ve turned out pretty well! Tom was very appreciative of them anyway and he’s not often a cookie-kind-of person!
