Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can't think of very many people who don't appreciate a good chocolate chip cookie.  There are so many recipes out there these days that it's hard to say which is the best, but it's fun to try.  I'm not sure I'd be able to say which one is best especially since it's not like I have them all sitting out in front of me to try and compare.

I can tell you, that these are mighty tasty. They would make a welcome addition to any barbecue you might be heading to this weekend or even just a little snack you take with you to the pool or  beach.

Awesome with a cold glass of milk

I stored mine in an airtight container and they remained soft for several days.

They really are big, fat and chewy.  Lots of buttery flavor, chewy inside with a crunchy outside.  I loved these cookies and so did my family!
