This recipe makes a bunch of cookies, I used a medium sized cookie scoop for these cookies. It makes 7 dozen depending on scoop size. This recipe can be halved if this is too many cookies for you. I have 14 grandchildren and this recipe fits the bill! Enjoy! You can also substitute other chips, white chips butterscotch chips, Reeses peanut butter chips, etc. Optional: you can also add 3 cups of chopped walnuts to this recipe!
