Man-sized, Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every time there is a bake-sale going on at work or my kids school, I am constantly being asked to bake these cookies.

For some reason they have almost a toffee flavor. Not sure why, but it is a yummy cookie.

I have also used this recipe to make 'Almond Joy' cookies, replacing the oatmeal with 2cups of coconut flakes and the pecans with toasted sliced almonds.

Ingredients

2 c
unsalted butter, room temperature
2 1/2 c
sugar
1 1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
4
eggs
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
cornflakes, crushed
2 c
quick cooking oats
4 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
baking powder
2 tsp
salt
2 c
toasted pecans, chopped
12 oz pkg
chocolate chips

Step-By-Step

1Cream together unsalted butter and sugars, until light and fluffy. ***Tip*** If you don't have room temperature butter then I just use my microwave set at 10% power a minute per side of butter for a total of 4-6 minutes, just be careful not to end up with melted butter, which I have done a couple of times because I somehow missed changing the power.

2Add eggs 1 at a time, I prefer putting eggs in hot tap water for 4-5 minutes so they mix better. Beat well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract.

3Stir in cornflakes and oats to this mixture

4Sift together, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt. I prefer to make sure they are all well mixed by adding 1 cup of flour to sifter, then 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, baking soda and baking powder, then alternate this for the other 3 cups of flour.

5Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture.

6Add toasted pecans and chocolate chips and distribute throughout dough. To toast pecans, spread a single layer on sheet tray and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Be very careful not to burn them.

7Place oven rack at the top of oven and preheat to 325 degrees.
