I saw this recipe on this site http://www.jasonandshawnda.com/foodiebride/?p=1251

Just looking at the photos of these cookies I knew that I had to try them. Let me just say that these cookies do not disappoint! They are the biggest cookie I have ever baked with the exception of a cookie cake. These were so delicious! My husband had a one word description for them "Epic!" I must agree these are Epic Chocolate Chip Cookies! I made these cookies using Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips. I have a thing for milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet.

8 oz (2 sticks) of unsalted butter (very cold and shredded with your food processor- Note I did not have very much luck shredding it in my fp and they still came out fabulous!)
3/4 cups of granulated sugar
3/4 cups of packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon sea salt (I did not have any and used regular table salt)
1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
12oz quality semisweet chocolate, chopped (I used a 12 oz bag of Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips - no chopping required)
1 cup of walnuts, chopped (I did not add these to the cookies)

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Next beat the cold butter and both of the sugars until they are just combined.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla. Beat just until incorporated.
  4. Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Then add it to the mixing bowl. Mix until just blended.
  5. Then add the chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix until evenly distributed.
  6. Finally divide the dough into 12 balls, about 4 oz each.  Place onto an ungreased baking pan.
  7. Chill the dough for 20 minutes.
  8. Bake the cookies for 18-22 minutes or until browned. Let the cookies cool completely on the pans before moving.
