Notes

Cooking baked for 8 minutes are crisp around the edges and deliciously chewy in the centre. Cookies baked for 10-11 minutes are crisp, perfect if you like to dunk cookies in your coffee. Use fresh butter for best results, and you'll be in love with the flavour of butter and vanilla and every bite giving you at least one bite into a chocochip.
My son even secretly microwaves the cookie for 10 seconds, so the chocochip feels even meltier (and messier) when he eats them.
