Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies Dear Elizabeth,
I know you have created chocolate chip cookie recipe before. I was wondering if you would consider converting mine. It originally came from the Ben and Jerry Ice Cream Cookbook. I've made this recipe for years and my family really misses it. We love it for its buttery flavor and minimal chocolate chips. I know it sounds funny to want just a few chocolate chips in chocolate chip cookies, but this way the taste of the cookie really comes through. Plus, these cookies are great for making ice cream sandwiches.
I love that your chocolate chip cookie recipe came from Ben and Jerry's! My mother is from their hometown of Burlington, Vermont. She fondly remembers waiting in line for ice cream when "Ben and Jerry's" was just a local ice cream parlor.
You are right; I have created several chocolate chip cookie variations. Like most recipes, there is not one "right one" and I enjoy sampling the multitude of variations available. This recipe is easy to make and resplendent with brown sugar, butter and vanilla. The chocolate chips are really an accent, not a centerpiece. Thank you for sharing this recipe! . . . keep reading
