The most important ingredient to making the perfect chocolate chip cookie (besides chocolate) is butter. Use Natrel Unsalted Butter for that extra-tasty, just-buttery-enough flavour and enjoy a fresh batch of chocolate chunk cookies. Your favourite snack for a mid-afternoon tea or those midnight cravings.
