{Versions & Verdicts} Lily’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another amazing cookie recipe – crispy outside from the use of bread flour andย  chewy on the inside.

thenotsocreativecook-ChocolateChipCookies2As the saying goes – “Happiness is an inside job.”

There are some things in your life that you keep on hiding or trying not to think of, but there are days that they want to let you feel that they are just there… waiting for you to let them in. I don’t like those days. Who does like that, anyway?

When you feel that way, you always find out something to distract you from the real problems. For me, baking and cooking help me a lot. Other than that, there are many things that could make me smile:

A slice of cake (or make that two). Funny book. Funny movies. Ice cream. Cupcakes. I say they are countless. And there are cookies.

thenotsocreativecook-ChocolateChipCookies3And when I say cookies, I mean the home-baked ones. And of course, the one I made. I also believe in the saying that you will never get enough of cookies. Trying out other recipes doesn’t mean that previous ones are not good. It just means that you are a certified cookie monster. ๐Ÿ˜€
Months back, I saw some awesome cookies from Lily @ Little Sweet Baker and I just can’t help but adore those little ones. The use of the bread flour really intrigued me. I had remaining bread flour from the not-so-successful bread baking eons back, so I decided to try Lily’s cookies.

thenotsocreativecook-ChocolateChipCookiesMy Version: Whenever I bake cookies, mine are always thicker. Regardless, I really loved these cookies and I am sure I am going to make this again. I made this back in December, but I still can remember how super awesome are these. โค

The verdict? Ugh, do I still have to confess that I gobbled up these cookies like I was born during the Dragon era and it’s my first time to eat something as delicious as this? Ooopps, I just said it. Okay! I admit every word I said. ๐Ÿ˜

To get the recipe, you can hop on to Lily’s post as I have not changed anything from it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, you can check some other droolicious recipes while you are there.

I may be late at the Fiesta Friday #60 event, so I am bringing these little ones earlier than usual, so you get your share while I am out. What do you say? ๐Ÿ˜€

Have fun and happy partying!

  1. Hope you are feeling more settled this week – Your cookies would certainly cheer me up. I always make mine a little thicker than average anyway to try to preserve that chewy centre. Thanks so much for joining in with #Bakeoftheweek again x

    1. I also love chewy center cookies, Helen. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks a lot for your wishes and for stopping by. I hope you are having a great time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Baking definitely is a stress reliever and everything tastes so much better when it’s homemade. These cookies look great. Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!! Laura@Baking in Pyjamas

  5. I always make quite thin cookies but these thick ones sound amazing, especially as they are crunchy on the outside but soft inside mmmm. Thanks so much for linking up to #SundaySweets, hope to see you back next week

  6. ok right these are on my list to make for the children. Whilst I was at the Pain Management Programme I made things for the people there and my family complaiend that I never bake this much for them (which is a lie of course I just think they wer ejealous), but I shall bake these for them, so thank you for bringing them to the tea party erm yum yum. I wonder how many at a time you ate?

    So what is the dragon era? I found out my spiritual guide is a dragon, wooohooo!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ x

    1. Hahaha, that’s what I usually say when it feels like I have eaten a certain food only for the first time – I was born during the dragon period. I hope it makes sense now. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Oh, Justine. I didn’t even know how many cookies I ate.:P

    1. This is my first time to use bread flour in cookies and I really loved the result.
      Your birthday is coming, Michelle. Any treat for us? ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. My hubs is obsessed with chocolate chip cookies! Which is difficult when you have a food blog and want to make “different” desserts, and all he wants is chocolate chip cookies! Well, I guess there’s nothing too wrong with that, at least now I have a new recipe I can give him! Thanks for sharing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh yeah. I remember one of your posts asking your hubs what he wanted you to make and he answered chocolate chip cookies. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope you get to try this and let me know. Have a great week, Steph. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Delicious! And happiness is an inside job is a very thoughtful quote. It’s like my mum says – you can’t rely on other people for your happiness. ๐Ÿ™‚ Being able to do the things you like, challenge yourself, and bake delicious cookies – seems like happiness to me!

    1. There’s so much to try from your sweet blog, Lily. This is not the last time. ๐Ÿ˜€ I am really happy that you liked mine, too. Have a lovely week. xx

  9. I love this – Happiness is an inside job. So true! And I’m sure a lot of happiness radiates from the inside after eating these cookies!! They look delicious! xo

    1. Right now, I need lots of these cookies. Unlucky me as they were long gone. ๐Ÿ˜
      Thanks a lot for stopping by, Tracy, and thanks for co-hosting. xx

  10. I’m happy to see you brought these along to Fiesta Friday #60, Jhuls! They look so yummy and I always have room in my belly for a cookie or two!

    1. I agree with you, Julie. I really love how the kitchen makes you feel everything is okay. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for being here. And advance happy FF. xx
