Cookies Cure Everything

Finally after being sick since Thursday I'm feeling better. I actually got off of the couch, took a shower and put on a bra. I slept more in the last few days than I probably have all month. Anyways, since I'm feeling better I wanted to bake something for my husband. He took care of me all weekend and cleaned the house. If you are married you know when he cleans the house he's a keeper. I also wanted some cookies myself. So I decided to make his favorite cookies. 

Now I can't take any credit for this recipe. I got it from the Alton Brown Good Eats cook book. You can also find it here

These are one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I've made. They are also really easy to make. When I made them I accidentally used the scoop I use to make cupcakes. So half way through baking them I realized we would be eating monster cookies. I'm not complaining! The bigger the cookie the better. 
They look normal sized here

I've made these a ton of times. The first time I made them I thought I burnt them. I quickly realized that they just come out a little darker. This is probably because you use brown sugar along with white sugar. This also makes them super chewy and delicious. 

Giganto cookies

Next time you are craving cookies I highly suggest you give these a try.  Let me know what you think.  I will be enjoying these with a hot cup of tea and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
