A basic recipe for chocolate chip cookies – works well every time.

When I was growing up, my mother used to make these cookies on a regular basis, but used sultanas instead of chocolate chips as my father is allergic to chocolate (very sad!).  Now that I’m cooking for my family, I often use milk or white chocolate,  but I still have fond memories of the sultanas – I’m not sure which version I prefer!

And they are easy to convert to gluten and dairy-free – just use gluten-free all-purpose flour, non-dairy margarine and chocolate chips and you will be able to experience the awesomeness of these classic cookies.
