I made these cookies last night when I fancied something sweet. They turned out pretty tasty but I think if I had some dark choc chips in place of cocoa powder they would be another level!
In other news my sour dough starter has come to life! After a couple of days it smelled pretty bad and I was tempted to give up on it. I persevered and now it smells bready and looks foamy.. just need to keep it going now til the weekend so I can make sour dough loaves.
If they turn out ok I will post the instructions I followed soon!
