Reviews for Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
"One of the best cookie recipes ever. I leave out the nuts and always chill the dough. This doesn't make very many jumbo cookies so I always double the recipe."
"Love these cookies. My husband says they are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. Rather than make 2 doz., I make them smaller and make 4 dozen. I also pressed them down on the cookie sheet to make them flatter."
"I just want to say that this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have come across! I ate one shortly after I pulled them out of the oven and it was a like eating a little piece of Heaven! I will definetly use this recipe whenever I am craving homemade cookies. Very easy and quick baking time. I did leave the nuts out though."
"Just made these again yesterday....I always use real butter, just my preference. I toast the pecans and this time I added a cup or so of dried tart cherries along with the chocolate chips. Use an ice cream scoop....ya, they're GIANT....six per cookie sheet, but what the heck !LOVE 'EM !
"These are the best!!!"
"Awesome. The best chocolate cookies, they are our family favorite cookies, make every weekend"
"i loved it! the first time i cooked these cookies i was wrong! i put 2 teaspoons of salt, and it was a bad idea! dont ever do that check your portions, beacuse it can taste bad as my cookies, but my second time i make these cookies tastes soooo goood! thanks for the recipe !"
"These cookies are fantastic! A message to trixiejo302 - when I made the dough I formed the cookies with a size 16 scoop and then put them all on a big cookie sheet in the refrigerator. I baked a few that night and the rest I put in the freezer. I take out a few every afternoon and put them in the refrigerator. I bake those just before we have our evening tea so we can have fresh cookies every evening."
"I absolutely love this recipe! I did not include the pecans and I used two bags of chocolate chips instead of one (because I love chocolate). They are perfect, I would definitely make them again and I love how big they are!"
