Chewy on the outside and soft on the inside - these are a doddle to make!

Omg, these cookies are SOOOOOO good! The cookies I make never seem to turn out right, but these are so quick and easy, with no fancy ingredients and minimal washing up! Already eaten three of them and they only came out of the oven about ten minutes ago! :D

These are the best cookies I ever made! Crisp on edge, chewy centre. Made one batch with nuts and another with mixed fruit. Very sweet, but not unpleasantly so. Could easily cut down on sugar by a quarter, especially fruit ones. Beware though, they really spread out. May need to shape straight from the oven, or make on xl baking tray or in batches of 5.

WOW! I have tried many a cookie recipes before and they have always turned out cakey in the middle, with a hard biscuit coating around the edge. I just tried this recipe for the first time and they were PERFECT. Well minus 70g of sugar (I put in 30g). I also added chocolate orange chunks and a dash of vanilla essence. Like others have said, you could be fooled into thinking they were fresh from Millies. Except i'll call mine Kimmies!

For Snesna...I've used castor, granulated, soft light brown, moscavado....basically whatever sugar I've got to hand, (apart from Icing sugar) but find that the browns make a darker, chewier cookie, and are also sweeter, so add less. Just about to make these yet again....lost count of how many times this is...this time with hazelnut white chocolate.....mmmmmmm :D

I give this recipe a 10 out of 10. It's the very first time i've ever made cookies so was looking for quick and easy, this is certainly that. I never had any syrup so just did without brown sugar for the sugar & choccy chips cut from a choccy bar. Made 11 cookies and they look incredible, but sadly not allowed to eat them so have to wait until my daughter comes home to get a taste verdict. Thank you so much!! I can cook lol

This may be a rookie question, but what type of sugar do you use??
