6 cookies (serving size: 1 cookie)

"My grandkids love these cookies because they're nice and big, with lots of chocolate chips. They're easy to freeze—just wrap individually in heavy-duty plastic wrap, and store in a zip-top bag." —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Mich.

How to Make It

Step 1

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, soda, and salt in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.

Step 2

Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg whites; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 4

Divide dough into 6 equal portions; place dough portions 2 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 2 minutes on pan; cool on a wire rack.

The cookies were overall good. The were chewy & good. I used an ice cream scoop to get the perfect sized cookie. I rated the cookies 3 stars as it is a good recipe, but probably not worthy of a special occasion.

Really good recipe, the refrigeration step surprised me, but it does need it. I rolled into balls and then flattened slightly for a perfect cookie shape

These were delicious! I made 9 cookies instead of 6. I also was surprised by the refrigeration step, but it really did need it. It made quite the difference in the cookie dough. Would definitely make these again as it is very easy to make and my boyfriend and I loved them.

Good base recipe. I made 10 cookies -- enough for me to have a taste and for my hubby to take to work twice. Normally I make larger batches of cookie, shape, and freeze the dough, then take out and bake as needed since there is just 2 of us now. But sometimes I want a quicker recipe, like this one....enough for 2 people without too much in leftovers. For whoever wonders what person would want a smaller sized recipe, I'm raising my hand. I know others who would as well. Not everyone has a large family....or needs a large amount of cookies or any other dessert.

Tasty, oversized, but a lot of work for just 6 cookies.

I guess I don't see the point to this recipe, why would anyone want to make just 6 cookies. Who cares if they are good, 6 cookies and their gone. Seems like a lot of trouble for such a little reward. Who would share?

Delicious and chewy. I made 12 instead of 6 cookies. I also used one whole egg instead of the 2 whites. My kids love them!
