Mega Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hi WLOW fans – Deb here from Cooking on the Front Burner back with a comfort cookie.  Do you think cookies can be comforting?  I do!  Recently someone I work with admitted their mom in the hospital for a surgical procedure and the family members were coming from out of town.  I wanted to put together a goodie bag with some treats I thought they might enjoy.  These Mega Chocolate Chip Cookies came to mind as they are made with big chocolate chunks, pecans, and old fashioned oatmeal.  I whipped up a batch and delivered them to the hospital.

I’m happy to report the surgery was a success as well as these cookies.

Now you can enjoy this recipe and grab a big-o-glass of ice cold milk and you are all set!  My favorite way to enjoy them is about 2 minutes out of the oven when the chips are gooey and warm.  Now that is comfort!!
