I recently discovered Donna - FFW's Tasty Treasures blog, and I am so glad I did. She is hilarious, and doesn't bother to hide her...um...enthusiasm for various hot celebrity chefs at all. One of her crushes is Tyler Florence, who, I have to admit, is one of the hotter chefs on the Food Network that I wouldn't mind having a nice intimate cooking date with (I also kind of like Ned Bell, who is a Canadian chef in Calgary whom I really enjoyed watching prepare various fish dishes on a recent episode of Cook Like a Chef, a show I just love).
Anyway, Donna posted about Tyler's My Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies, and, with a name like that, how could I resist? I printed out the recipe and made it the other day. Perfect PMS and time-of-the-month food, I must say. I made the cookies quite large, and it felt so decadent to bite into a cookie that had more than two bites to it! Normally, I scoop my cookies with my #70 cookie scoop, which is about a TBSP. For these, I used my #12 scoop, which is almost 1/2 a cup, and then divided each scoop in half to get about 1/4 cup's worth of cookie dough per cookie. I think I need to do this more often! Down with piddly-sized cookies, man!
The recipe is here.
