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.

How To Make man-sized, best chocolate chip cookies

  • 1
    Cream 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.
  • 2
    Add 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.
  • 3
    Stir in cornflakes and oats to this mixture
  • 4
    Sift 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.
  • 5
    Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture.
  • 6
    Add 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.
  • 7
    Place oven rack at the top of oven and preheat to 325 degrees.
  • 8
    Drop by standard sized ice cream scoop onto greased cookie sheet. These cookies are large so only 6 to a standard sized cookie sheet. My sheets are 19x15 so 8 will fit.
