Whenever we go to Carrefour for our Monthly Grocery Shopping, Kuttu would grab himself a box of Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies from the bakery there. Though i bake cookies @ home, i have never tried these @ home. For this month’s Baking Partner’s Challenge, we got three Cookies Recipe. Ultimate Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies from Tina of Pinay’s Cooking Corner, Cornflakes Cookies by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes and Home-made Oreo Cookies by Reeni of Cinnamon spice and Everything nice.
I immedidately decided to make my Kuttu’s fav. Chewy Chocolate Cream cheese cookies. Oh my, they tasted awesome, Kuttu loved them. I baked Cornflakes Cookies too, which i will be posting in another 2 days.
