Absolute best chocolate chunk cookies

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We think it’s safe to say that everyone loves a homemade chocolate chip cookie. There’s just something about a fresh-from-the-oven bakery style cookie that makes us feel like we’re home sweet home. If you’re one of the rare beings on this planet that can resist the draw of an ooey-gooey cookie, we dare you to try and resist this one.

Our tea content manager dreamed up this recipe to bring you what we think is the best chocolate chunk cookie ever. They’re butter-y, chocolate-y, a little bit caramel-y (from the butter + brown sugar) and they bake up to deliver the holy grail of the cookie world: crispy edges and a super soft centre.

What tips them over the edge towards “best cookie ever” is the balancing flavour of matcha. But you don’t have to take our word for it.
