Who decides to make some chocolate chip cookies and realise they have no chocolate chips just when its time to add them in? That would be me.

As much as I love chocolate (and its no secret that I love me some chocolate!) , I hate one thing to do with it , and that is chopping it into equal sized chunks. Did I say equal? Nope, never happens. Even my most careful chopping results in a mixture of thin shards , largish chunks , many shavings and lots of chocolate powder. Which is why these cookies look the way they do!

Don’t be like me . Remember to stock up on chocolate chips before making these. Reduces your work, clean up is easier and so is slicing the cookies. Or atleast chop up your chocolate better than I managed to!

But then again , I liked the way these cookies looked , and tasted. And I like slice and bake cookies , because they are easier to portion out ( no measuring out tablespoons and scoops ) and you can chill the cookie dough logs and bake as many as you need whenever you feel cookies! And people wonder why I never lose weight!

Ignore my rant about chocolate chopping and weight watching , make these cookies !

These are great little devils. Some bites have blobs of gooey chocolate, some just a little. The cookie is crisp and crunchy . Make sure to keep them away from prying eyes and hands though. They have a way of disappearing !

There s more you can do with chocolate chips and cookies – chewy chocolate chip cookies , Nutella chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip blondies !

  1. Hi Amy… replacement for the egg would be 1/4 cup thick curd. There is slight change in texture . If you don’t want as many cookies , try halving the recipe and use 2 tbsps curd instead of the egg..works well 🙂
