These big guys satisfied all the chocolate chip cookie cravings in my house today....very good! I used a combination of semi-sweet and white chocolate chunks. This is a fun recipe that I'll be sure to make again....now if I can only find a container large enough to store them in!
Excellent cookie! These came out soft & a little chewy, even after they had cooled. Thanks for posting! -M :-)
These were really good! I added cashews to mine for something a little different. These had a nice buttery flavor and not too sweet. The only thing I didn't like about these was that they spread, which was pretty flat. Thank you!!!
