Last week Soph’s buddy Jack was back having a play date at our house, so we decided to whip up something delicious for afternoon tea! We ransacked the cupboards and decided we had everything we needed to make our scrumptious choc chip and coconut cookies! They are super easy to make and we usually have all the ingredients, so its a great recipe when you need to do a spot of unplanned baking!
Soph and Jack had an absolute ball mixing and measuring all the ingredients and making the little balls of cookie dough to place on the tray, they might have even eaten a few before they went into the oven, ha ha! After they cooled down we also packaged up some for Jack to take home for his family and some for Soph’s Daddy to take to work! Soph and Jack demolished quite a few for afternoon tea as well!
If you would like to make some of these yummy cookies, here is our recipe below. Easy and delicious, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
