Chocolate Chip Cookies for Santa


Chocolate chip cookies are a firm favourite in our house and when we make them they always go down a treat. The beauty of this recipe is you can vary the recipe as much as you like and sometimes I like to add is some mixed spice and dried fruit for a varied alternative.
