This recipe is called "brittle" because it's a big slab of crisp chocolate chip cookie that you break into irregular pieces after it bakes. Package in a cookie jar or in a decorative tin for a festive and sweet twist on chocolate chip cookies.

  • Bake at 350° for 19 minutes or until lightly browned and cookie "slab" seems crisp. Cool completely in pan. Break cookie into pieces.
