XL Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted a tradition for the first day of school.  I was inspired by How Does She, who posted the tradition of the GIANT chocolate chip cookie for the first day of first grade.  I thought it was cute, but honestly, I don't want my child attempting to eat that much sugar and chocolate.  She's hyper enough as it is.


So, I decided to modify the idea, and I made XL Chocolate Chip Cookies.

It's halfway gone already!


They are about double, or maybe even triple, the size of a typical cookie.  Let me tell you, they are delicious!


This is not my "go-to" chocolate chip cookie recipe, but it might be a close second.  The ones I usually make are soft and chewy.  These are rolled in sugar, and thus have that slightly crisp bite on the outside, with all the soft chewiness on the inside.  They actually remind me of Paradise Bakery's chocolate chip cookies.  Mmmmm.....

I made two XL, and then used the rest of the dough to make normal size cookies.  They didn't last long!
