You just can’t beat a good homemade chocolate chip cookie – it’s the go-to favourite dessert for any occasion and for any age and our friends at Billington’s have shared this delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe with us.

The inclusion of the golden caster sugar gives them a warm golden colour and a buttery taste – Combine this with the unrefined light muscovado sugar which provides a creamy fudge taste and you can see why these cookies are mouth-wateringly good!
