The Ballad Of The Chocolate Chip Cookie

A delicious cookie failure...

In the midst of listening to Madeline Peyroux and twirling around my bedroom, I was hit with what I can only describe as an unholy craving for Chocolate Chip Cookies. Normally i'm a sweet tooth regardless, but these cravings were so intense that they had me trekking in the rain to my local Tesco to buy as many chocolate chips as i could fit in my handbag (hashtag-not-paying-5p-crew). Now i'll be honest and say that these didn't quite turn out as i'd have liked due to my error of putting in way too much flour (also: hashtag-no-measurements-crew). I like my cookies more buttery, dense and chewy, but these turned more airy, fluffy and light, which worked out well because i ate 80% of the tray within a day without feeling sick or guilty so win win. I won't provide the recipe for this as it was a spin off of Helen's 'Ultimate Chocolate Chip Recipe' (with an added sprinkling of impatience on my part, hence the scone-like cookies rather than the chewy soft cookies i desired, but instead i'll share some of my favourite baking babes and their delicious recipes with you below.

Here are some better cookie recipes... 

In order to justify me posting the above pretty images of my own semi-fail cookies, i did a little exploring through my saved recipe files from other people and have found three pretty tasty looking cookie recipes for you to try, from Olivia's incredibly beautiful Earl Grey Cookies, to Helen's classic Chocolate chip, to Carrie's Fancy looking butterfingers…

To chocolate chip cookie? Or to traditional style biscuit? That is the question. Let me know your sweet tooth faves. I'm about to re-attempt and refine my cookie-baking skills and whip up another batch of cookies this evening to have over the weekend whilst i watch my favourite film 'La Fabuleux Destin D'Amelie Poulain' with a mug of Chai in my cold hands. Heres to a great weekend guys!



  1. I love chocolate chip cookies especially with nuts, snickerdoodles, soft sugar cookies, basically any type of cookie that's not super crispy, or has raisins in it hahaha.
    One of my close friends went away to another state for work for a year and a half, and she made THE BEST cookies, I miss her, and her cookies hahaha.

    1. Awww this is so sweet! I hope you get to see your friend soon and you're reunited with her awesome cookies ;)


  2. They may not have come out how you wanted but they still look delish to me! I feel like with home baked stuff the messier they look the better x
