The original recipe consisted of dough composed of butter and both white and brown sugar. Since then there had been numerous variations of this iconic snack.

Few tips that I have learnt to bake the best chocolate chip cookie are
1.Melt the butter completely and bring it to room temperature.
2. Add enough flour such that dough doesn't stick to your hand while making bunches.
3. Use bunching up approach instead of rolling them out in the palm of your hand. This will get you a defined lumpy mounds of chocolate chips which looks more appealing.
4. Don't Over bake the cookies. Doing so you might loose the moist and soft texture of the cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie


Hello everyone!!!
Wouldn’t your Mondays be infinitely better with a sweet treat? Yes, yes they would. 🙂
Here is my first baking recipe for my blog!
108I was bored one Sunday afternoon.  So I went into my kitchen, opened my pantry and found the left over white chocolate chip which I bought for making strawberry fudge (for which the recipe will be uploaded soon 🙂 ). I heard a voice in my head saying “take it and finish it off for god sake!”. But I don’t want to eat it as is. So I came up with the idea of making something. So after good few seconds of pinteresting I came up with this recipe White Chocolate Macadamia Nuts Cookies and her pictures looked delicious. I tried this substituting with cashew nuts as I had no macadamia nuts at home. And tada..  Here is my mouth watering white chocolate chip cashew nut cookies. You should definitely try it. I m sure you will not regret.
111It should be crispy on the outside and soft and chewy inside.
118I thought the original recipe would be too much for two of us. So I reduced the ingredients by half.
