Wow...I can't believe no one else has tried these Tierney's Mom. These cookies are just excellant. Wish I could give you ten*'s. Thank you so much for sharing this very easy to make recipe. It makes large, beautiful, satisfying cookies, with great flavour. I didn't have enough white chocolate chips so I used half white and half milk chocolate chips...one word yummy. KUDOS BK
