Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

Chocolate Chunk Cookies are really versatile – you can use white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, and you have another wonderful cookie.  

The recipe is large and taxes the best of mixers.  I cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla until really light and fluffy.  Then add the flour on a very low speed until just lightly mixed.  I then put it into a very large bowl or on the counter top and mix with my hands.  When thoroughly mixed, I then add the chips and nuts.  I also use an ice cream scoop to measure the cookie dough, about equal to a heaping tablespoon or the size of a golf ball.  Use your imagination – be creative. Add whatever appeals to you!
