Mum's Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie RecipeI have seen far too many healthy recipes being posted for the new year. Have you guys seen the weather outside? It's hideous out there & 'healthy food' is not what you are in need of to cope with the 'back to work blues'.
You are going to need something like this. These cookies famously caused a minor riot at a school bake sale - which says a little more about my school than my cookies - but these are pretty amazing. They are a little bit of a family secret which have been getting better & better with time
Usually these cookies are incredible warm & pretty good once they've cooled but I've added a little cinnamon & really good quality dark chocolate chips I think I've finally fixed that.... You'll have to let me know. Usually, however, we made these with whatever bags of chocolate chips we could find......I have made them with edible lavender, a bag of white chocolate chips & slivered almonds - those worked really well too.
But, yeah. These are my families famous Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Beat the margarine, sugar, vanilla & cinnamon together until light & fluffy.
Beat in the egg & then the flour & bicarbonate of soda.
Stir in the chocolate chips & then mix well.
Place heaped teaspoons of the dough, generously spaced, onto a lined baking sheet & spread a little - until roughly cookie shaped.
