    Default Amazing chocolate chip cookies

    Isa C M posted an amazing recipe for choc chip cookies on her blog a couple of weeks ago.

    http://theppk.com/blog/2008/11/10/ch...-chip-cookies/

    I finally got around to making them, using cornflour instead of tapioca flour, and plain soya milk instead of almond milk. Very quick, very easy and truly, gobsmackingly fantastic cookies, chaps. Made a batch of 16 - they have gone already (and there's only me and Mr Rose around today... ). Well worth a go.

    Interesting recipe. Not sure where I'd get tapioca flour, and I WISH I could get chocolate chips around here They used to do them in one of the scoop and save places in the market but haven't had them for ages, and haven't seen the plamil ones around either.

    Cornflour instead of tapioca flour - or arrowroot if you have that in the cupboard. I bought a bag of dairy free choc chips from the health food store, but I seem to recall that the Supercook ones that you get in all the supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury, Waitrose definitely) are also vegan.

    Yeah, I got an email from Supercook a while back in response to my enquiry telling me that although they were made on the same line the ingredients in the dark ones were vegan. Now they've been taken over by Dr Oetker (sp?) they've gone the Green and Blacks route, and last time I looked they said they contain milk

    If you're ever down this way, grab some tropical source ones from whole foods for about 2.50.

    Sainsburys have dairy free choc chips in the Free From section, and Marks & Spencer do plain choccie chips too.

    Want cookies now.

    I don't bother with choc chips. Instead I just cut up a block of vegan chocolate into small pieces. Its cheaper. Thanks for the recipe, I'll give it a go later

    Yeah, that's what I do as well, mostly because I haven't got much choice! M&S had dark chocolate chips for about a week 4 months ago, but haven't had any in since despite me nagging them. Haven't seen any in any free from sections either. Leicester seems to be a bit of a dry spot for them! (yes, I'm talking about independent wholefood shops too)

    I personally prefer chunks of chocolate in cakes I'm going to eat, but chocolate chips look a lot more professional in cookies you're trying to sell (as I found out last weekend - most of my cupcakes were snapped up because they looked pretty, and only 2 people bought my ugly choc chunk cookies).

    Okay, made a Christmassy variation on these, leaving out the choc chips and putting in cinnamon, ginger, dried cranberries and pecan nuts. Fantastic.

    I'm never going to use any other cookie recipe again - haven't had a single duff batch with this, and am getting the reputation as the Cookie Queen as well as Empress of Cupcakes. I so heart Isa.

    They're selling bags of dairy free cooking choc chips in Sainsbury's now, they're the same make as the rice crackle bars and buttons
