Tyler Florence's Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.

A few days ago patient's dad brought the staff a great big plate of choc chip cookies that looked just like these. I had 1- the first treat in 6 weeks- and it was worth breaking the diet for!

This is almost too much to bear in the morning. Tyler Florence AND his awesome chocolate chip cookies? Donna's blog is funny. I've never even heard half of the words she uses to describe the objects of her enthusiasm.
