Cookies, the cool American cousin of the biscuit. They should be crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. In my opinion, they are at their best warm, soft and fresh out the oven. Can you think of anything better than a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies? No, I didn’t think so!

Whatsmore, they are extremely easy. A basic cookie dough recipe consists of a few main ingredients; butter, sugar, eggs and flour. From there you can personalise them any way you want!

Cookies are usually made with brown or muscovado sugar because of the sticky consistency, however, you can substitute for white sugar but be aware it may have a different texture without the brown sugar.

To make this recipe gluten-free, you can easily substitute the flour with the same quantity of almond or coconut flour.

Cookies are so easy that you can even make them using pre-made cake or brownie mix! All you have to do is add a little more flour.

You can also make vegan cookies without eggs and butter but you will need to follow a different recipe!
