Oh my goodness. I made these the other day. And boy, they were soooo easy to make, and it came out HUGE. They are way better than store bought. No joke. I usually spend $5 on a box, but now, I can make it myself. One was enough to fill me up. I brought some to school, and all my friends wanted some. Definitely a keeper. Will be making more sooon.

Betterest chocolate chip cookie ever

The best chocolate chip cookie I've had the fun and pleasure to make and eat. Only one problem: Took some to work to share. Now if I don't bring some at least once a week, I'm in trouble.

Truly Jumbo

These cookies are sooooo big that only one is enough to satisfy a sugar craving. I usually eat 5-6 regular size chocochips cookies before I feel full, but with this recipe, I had difficulties to finish one cookie. Also, if you have a small mixing bowl, it is probably best to split the recipe in two, otherwise the ingredients might spill over...

Best Chocolate Chip Cookie EVER

by W. Wendy , Jasper, MI on Nov. 2008

I stumbled upon this when I was trying to dupe a gourmet choc-chip cookie I saw on TV. THIS IS IT!! It is now our favorite cookie of all time. I made a few minor changes...instead of 2 c. chips I added 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 c. special dark chocolate chips, added: 1/2 c. chopped walnuts and 1/2 c. chopped pecans (both toasted). My husband asked me to bake HUGE cookies for poker night so I dropped by 1/2 c. and baked a little longer. They were monster sized and YUMMY DELICIOUS!

These are, by far, the best chocolate chip cookies ever! My husband is a very picky eater even when it comes to cookies, but he absolutely loves these! He has taken them to work to share with his employees, and they all give this recipe a "thumbs up".

These cookies are so delicously chewy in the inside and have a nice crisp on the outside. They are a prefect cookie to sever to the whole family.
