BFCCCC


I finally made a successful cookie. The Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie. But do I see all the hype over these allegedly heavenly cookies? Unfortunately, not really. Don't get me wrong...they were a delicious treat after all the diet treats I've been stomaching lately, but I don't think they tasted any different or looked any different than cookies from the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, which I made many times in years gone by before I went healthy. They were better than these healthy chocolate chip cookies, but I don't know that they are worth the time. Although, licking the bowl was the highlight of my day. And I definitely ate more than my fair share.


WW info:
2 points per cookie*
*The recipe as is on allrecipes.com is supposed to yield 18 HUGE cookies. You can easily get 36 good-sized cookies (that are still very large....one will be a very nice snack).

Interesting, your BFCCC cookies look very different than mine. Yours definitely look like the Nestle Tollhouse ones usually turn out when I make them. Here's what mine look like, I always refrigerate the dough before baking, I wonder if that makes a difference (also the baking sheet can affect how dark they get): http://juliatylerfoodblog.wordpress.com/2007/04/11/rough-day-need-cookies/

i agree, i think they are really good, but i also think there is more hype to them than anything else!

is there anything better than a big, soft chocolate chip cookie? i don't think so.
