Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you like rich, thick chocolate chip cookies, then this recipe is for you!

Like a lot of people, I tend to get overwhelmed by the holidays. I really enjoy them, but sometimes my brain is buzzing with all of the things I have to do. So much so that I sometimes can’t get my mind straight to figure out what to bake. 
     But when I get overwhelmed, and I just don’t feel like experimenting with something completely foreign to me, I generally fall back on creating a new chocolate chip cookie recipe. I am most familiar with making cookies, and chocolate chip cookies will generally please most people. So it’s a win-win for my scattered mind. 
     Today, I wanted to experiment using honey in a chocolate chip cookie recipe. I thought it would make them too sweet, so I only added a couple of tablespoons. 
     I used enough flour so this dough was not too wet, and I put in a generous amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips. So I knew these were going to be thick cookies.
     I was right… this came out to be big, fat, thick cookies with a nice soft interior and lots of yummy chocolate chips! This was definitely a substantial and delicious chocolate chip cookie. The honey did not overpower it, so it was not overly sweet. 
     If you are looking for a chocolate chip cookie that isn’t as flat as the traditional chocolate chip cookie, look no further!

  5. Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla, mixing until thoroughly combined.
  6. Stir in flour mixture, along with chocolate chips.
  7. Drop by rounded heaping tablespoons onto the cookie sheet (these don’t spread very much, so I was able to make 15 large mounds and fit them all onto one sheet).
