Bakery Style XXL Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ahhhh, summer is so great isn’t it? The boys and I baked these massive cookies last weekend together and I am so glad we did. My little stinkers were hopped up on the counter still in their PJ’s fighting over who gets to pour what into the mixer. Love these two boys.

Hope you enjoy our gigantic bakery worthy cookies in your home too ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s start with the butter please ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite toothless boys helping with the sugar.

Cream your butter and sugar.

My other favorite guy helping add the eggs. Thanks Mase!

Ok, time for the vanilla.

Once the wet ingredients are well combined, time for the flour mix!

Don’t forget to add lots of chocolate chips too ๐Ÿ™‚

Summer baking in the kitchen with these two. My favorite!

I wasn’t messing around when I said XXL cookies. This is a good heaping 1/4 cup of dough per cookie.

Press your dough down evenly before baking.

What you get are these gorgeous buttery cookies! Enjoy!

    I loved these pictures! I can’t help but smile at your boys, they remind me of my brother and I when we would bake with my mom. She has always been a baker extraordinaire and is always baking up a storm. I have many fond memories of my brother and I helping her in the kitchen. I think this son is due for a trip to his mom’s for some mother-son baking time! Thanks for sharing!

    Good cookies. They are HUGE- I couldn’t put more than 2 to a pan without them running together. I put peanut M&M’s in mine instead of chocolate chips, and had to cut a bit of bake time off.

    Jenny – I have always looked for a recipe for those BIG bakery sized cookies, and have never found one that wasn’t dry and crumbly. Glad I found your blog somehow through and there was this recipe. I think I have the best regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this one looks like it is going to be the perfect bakery size cookie recipe. Can’t wait to try them on my daughter and son in law who think my reg. size chocolate chip cookie recipe is the best!!! Thanks for posting this XXL cookie recipe!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love, love your boys!!!!!
