Cookie Recipe of the Week: Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies - Perfect for Picnics, Just In Time for Summer

Yes, chocolate chip cookies are everybody’s favorite … and what about these amazing Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies? They are perfect for all those picnics coming up this summer.

You make them to be the size of the palm of your hand, about 4 to 6 inches across. And no, it’s best not to make jumbo cookies with a regular cookie recipe, simply dropping larger amounts of dough. Why? Because the cookie dough will likely spread too much. Jumbo cookie recipes are heavier and thicker to compensate.

Use this version. Be sure to bake a test cookie or two before baking the whole batch so you can adjust size and practice the best way to flatten dough.

Prep time: about 15 minutes
Baking time: 10-14 minutes
Makes about 2 dozen jumbo cookies
