Choc chip cookies by Annabel Langbein

Here is a recipe for chocolate chip cookies, from a lovely cook, food writer and publisher from New Zealand, called Annabel Langbein. Annabel Langbein has a lot of baking and cooking books published with lots of beautiful photos, and her recipes are always so lovely and reliable and are often made with fresh ingredients. I opened a tin of condensed milk a couple of days ago and was a bit worried about how we could use the condensed milk, though I thought of baking chocolate chip cookies, as we also have some dark chocolate at home. I am hoping to bake the chocolate chip cookies today and the cookies would be so lovely to have for morning or afternoon tea or with a cup of coffee or tea in case you feel like something sweet ๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿช
