Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monster Chocolate chip cookies

 

 

Sometimes it’s just fun to eat an obnoxiously big cookie. These cookies are just that! There is no rule that says you HAVE to make them this big, but why wouldn’t you? Sometimes you have to break the rules and make big cookies =P

I have been experimenting with these cookies a lot! Here is what I discovered.. If you bake them on an air-bake cookie sheet they get flat, still good, but flat. If you bake them on a dark cookie sheet that is NOT an air-bake they get more on the fluffy side. So it is up to you, do you like flat cookies or fluffy cookies? I like all cookies! flat, fluffy, big, little, I like them all. LOL. These cookies are also great to hand out as gifts. I like to make them and wrap them individually in plastic wrap.

Monster Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

2 Cups (4 sticks) Butter

1/3 Cup crisco

1 3/4 Cup brown sugar

1 3/4 Cup sugar

4 eggs

3 tsp. vanilla

5 1/2 Cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 bags chocolate chips

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

In a large mixing bowl add butter, crisco, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Use a hand mixer to cream together. Once creamed together, add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well with a wooden spoon. Once everything is mixed well and it looks like cookie dough, add both bags of chocolate chips, mix well. Chill dough in the fridge for about 20 minutes. For monster cookies, drop by ice cream scoops full. Depending on the size of your cookie sheets, you may only be able to make 2-4 cookies at a time. For normal sized cookies drop by tablespoons full.

Monster cookies bake at 375 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until edges are brown and center is cooked.

* I always make the monster cookies, but for normal sized cookies bake at 375 degrees but reduce the cooking time. I would try 8 minutes. =)
