  3. Bake 1 sheet at a time, rotating half way through baking, bake until edges are set and centre seems undone (12-16min)
  4. Let cookies cool on sheet for 10 min, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely
  5. Bake the other sheet, repeat the same baking steps


If you prefer more texture and a classic flavour of the old-fashioned chunky cookie, try rolled oats. Quick oats can be used to substitute.

When baking, your cookies are ready when they are brown at the edges, centres are soft and puffy, they might seem undone between the cracks.

Always rotate halfway through baking, make sure heat is distributed evenly to the cookies.
