Walnut & Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love this recipe. It brings together delicious chunks of chocolate with the crunchy goodness of walnuts in a bite-sized piece of heaven.

When making these cookies, you can have 24 medium-sized cookies or 48 mini cookies to share. This recipe also highlights the difference between British biscuits and American cookies. Both have their place, but cookies are just that little bit more special.

Get your baking hat on today and rustle up a batch. You won’t regret it!
