I've started going to an exercise class on a Monday morning, as they have a creche so Mini-2 is ok there. They also have a class on a Friday afternoon, but I've not made it to that yet - one week I had a bad dizzy spell and today I felt like baking instead. We had a playdate this afternoon with friends we hadn't seen for months, and we were all looking forward to it. I thought cookies would go down nicely for all.
I wanted to try another from the Donna Hay (Australia's Nigella Lawson) book my friend C gave me for a birthday a couple of years ago, Simple Essentials - Chocolate. There were a few from which to choose, but the Double Chocolate ones looked perfect for the time I had available and I had all the ingredients to hand. They needed a lot of chocolate - some melted into the mix, some chopped into the mix. See what I mean? That's a lot of chocolate chips, and more were added after this photo.
The mix was a bit dry, but easily made over 3 dozen small-medium sized cookies, yum. And they went down a storm with our friends... Want one?
