Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (41/2oz/128g) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (50z/142g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup milk (8floz/225ml) chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, cream together your butter and sugars using a whisk or wooden spoon.
  • Add in vanilla, salt and heat treated flour. The mixture is going to be crumbly at this point. Add in 2 tablespoons of milk and mix. Now the dough will look like the cookie dough you’re used to seeing. Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Freeze for up to three months.

Hi, Gemma. I’m out of milk, but I do have evaporated milk and heavy whipping cream. Can I use one of those in lieu of milk?
Thanks. Love your recipes!

Hi Gemma!
I tried this and the taste was wonderful but it was a bit grainy. I heat treated my flour just as you said in the other comments for 10mins in the oven.
What could have been the problem?
Thanks in advance!
