Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies

from SkimpyPantry.blogspot.com

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen jumbo cookies


3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

2 1/4 cups flour (I typically use 1/4 cup white wheat flour.  You know, for health reasons.)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or whatever add-ins you like)


1) Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in a large bowl or stand mixer.  

2) Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.  Dough will be stiff.  Gently fold in chocolate chips (or whatever add-ins you're using).

3) Using a 1/4 cup as a guide, scoop six cookies at a time on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes, or until the centers are set and the edges are beginning to golden.  (For chewy and not crunchy cookies, do not overbake.)  Allow cookies to cool slightly before removing them to a wire rack until cool.  Enjoy!
