As I am sitting here looking at this picture, I am almost to the point of tears. I worked very hard at perfecting this recipe. This is one that I am having a hard time publicizing.
This jumbo chocolate chip cookie is probably one of the best cookies you will ever eat in your lifetime. I sometimes dress these up with mini colored baking chips, and sometimes walnuts.
These cookies are one of my top sellers, and I have family begging me to make these all the time.
I have to let you know that I do not use any other type of baking sheet besides the Pampered Chef baking stones. If you have never used Pampered Chef baking stones, you are truely missing out on a great thing. When baking cookies on a baking stone there is no such thing as a bad cookie. When they are light-brown on top, they are exactly the same way on the bottom.
If you do not own a Pampered Chef baking stone, I highly suggest you get one. Take the time to locate a Pampered Chef Representative, and I do believe that Pampered Chef is sold on Ebay.
Well, here it goes *sniffle, sniffle*
Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. cup sugar
1 1/4 c. packed light brown sugar
1 TBS vanilla
1 12 oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips, or colored chips
*opt* 1 c. chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder in medium bowl. Set aside
Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour mixture, until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by 1/4 c. (I use the 1/4 c. size cookie scoop, or an ice cream scoop works good too) cupfuls, 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown (when these cookies just start turning brown is when they should be taken out of the oven. I also leave them sit on the cookie sheet for about 5-7 minutes before removing them). It is very improtant that you do not overbake these cookies.
This recipe will make about 26 jumbo cookies.
Well, I got through it without second thoughts, or "having the big one". I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
