When I was a kid, I pretty much lived off biscuits. There was really nothing better than dunking a biscuit or cookie into a glass of warm, milky tea, or a cup of warm milk. I never liked the taste of tea but would always ask for one, purely for dunking purposes. I would know exactly how long to dunk in order to get the perfect moist cookie, without it going too soggy. This all sounds a little weird I know, but for me, I was in snacking heaven.
As I’ve got older, I seemed to have stopped eating shop-bought cookies. Instead opting for treats that I’ve baked myself, but I’ve never really been one to make biscuits. They were the one thing that I could just never get right. No matter how hard I tried, I just failed, pretty much every time. But not so long ago something amazing happened. I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and to my surprise they came out perfectly! Super crunchy, with a soft gooey centre and loaded with chunks of chocolate. They were absolutely delicious. From then on, I became a bit of cookie addict. I spent about a week making biscuits, using different ingredients and flavours, and baked what seemed like a million cookie experiments. Although, I have to say, I didn’t get a lot of complaints!
