Chinese New Year Cookies: Chocolate Chip Cookies

2011_01_20 Chocolate Chip Cookies 025a
After baking green pea cookies and receive many good comments, that actually boost up my confident level to make other type which am adapting from Rasa Malaysia’s recipe.

I find that it’s even more easy to make compared to Green Pea Cookies and even Peanut Cookies. When I made that for the first time, hubby wasn’t really like the shape of this cookies, but of course, when it’s out from the oven, the entire kitchen was full of chocolate smell.
