Perfectly Big, Thick & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Annamaria Settanni McDonald


This cookies are just so comforting. I love this one bakery by my house just for their chocolate chip cookies. I don't like anything else there. They always run out of these cookies. So I decided what the heck I will try to make something like them. They came out really good because I found out that using Bread flour makes them chewier. I have a similar cookie that uses all purpose flour, but figuring out that Bread Flour is the way to go here! Nothing beats a big, chewy cookie. These are also great served with vanilla ice between to big cookies. Just like the my favorite dessert at Walt Disney World. That was probably the best cookie ice cream sandwich I ever had!
