Big Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Luv4food

These turn out big, like the kind you find in bakeries. I've also added peanut M&M's for a more special cookie.

I made these cookies as a treat for my daughter and I have to say that this recipe came out better than any chocolate cookie recipe I have ever tried. The cookies were just the right consistency of chewy and crispy. They were just like bakery cookies! The only thing I might change next time is the amount of vanilla. The taste of vanilla seemed a little too much for me. I like the idea of adding a little almond extract and I'll try that next time. Thanks for a great recipe!!!
