Step 3 – Add all the dry ingredients in the liquid mixture (except chocolate chips), just scrape off the flour from side of the utensil and mix it only up till all the flour is incorporated.

Recommended – Add flour in batches so there are no lumps formed in the mixture.

Note – Don’t overmix the mixture as the cookies will turn out to be hard.

Step 4 – Add chocolate chips & mix them well with a spoon or a spatula and freeze the dough for half an hour. In the meanwhile preheat the oven to 325F/162C.

Step 5 – Use an ice cream scoop to get an even and consistent amount of dough. Take a tray with parchment paper and place the dough balls at a distance, as they would flatten out.

Step 6 – Bake them for 10-15 mins turning the tray half way through to get even heat, until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center.

Note – Every oven is different, so it’s usually best to go by your own eye to get the cookies right.

Step 7 – Let them cool completely on a wire rack(at least half an hour), before attacking them.
