The cookies are baked by dropping or pushing huge measuring cupfuls of cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Be sure to bake one or two cookies in a test batch to check on dough spread and make adjustments. (Get more tips for baking jumbo cookies here.)

Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Makes about 2 dozen jumbo cookies
