Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients making sure all ingredients are blended well.
- Add in remaining ingredients. Blend well.
- Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop out your cookie dough and place on the parchment paper.
- Press the centre of the cookie dough a bit with the back of a spoon. They will spread out to almost 5-6 inches per cookie so make sure you have lots of room on the cookie sheet for them to bake.
- Bake for 13-17 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the cookie sheet. With carry over cooking, they continue to bake for another 5 minutes while cooling out of the oven. This is what gives them the chewy consistency.
- Store in an airtight container.
