UPDATE: The idea for this came from a book called Big Fat Cookies. I found it on Pinterest via a post written by The Cupcake Project!

    Made these tonight…and they were delicious! They’re crunchy, salty, sweet, soft and chewy…so many elements…love it! If I had to change one thing, I would recommend only baking 1 cup worth of the dough that you put back in the cookies, cause I think all the crushed cookies caused the dough to get a little dry. But besides that…really good! Definitely making again! 🙂

    Mind = BLOWN!! Lovin’ this recipe, and it’s SOO easy! Where has this gooey/crispy goodness been all my life!?! I love your recipes by the way. BiG fan! Keep doin’ what your doin’!

    I made these cookies and my dough almost seemed too dry compared to yours. The mini cookies did not flatten out as in the photos above. And I followed the recipe exactly. Any ideas?

    Just made these yesterday, perfect day as we were stuck inside due to the lovely ice storm, but these cookies made everything all right with the world again! They were amazing. I did pick up some of those chips in bittersweet at Fairway and I think they helped with the deliciousness.

    Just a side note to you and other fans of your blog, Elinor Klivans writes alot of other books. My fav is The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook. I’ve made many recipes from this book…all great!!

    I’m sorry if this has been answered- so this dough does NOT need to be chilled, correct?

    Also- these cookies look fabulous. I am SO baking these this weekend. Thank you for posting! Love your site!

    So… I just made these. SUPER yum. How can I ever go back to regular chocolate chip cookies?? I am going to be sending these with hubs tonight for work so I don’t eat them ALL. Great recipe! 🙂

    1. Shelly

      YES! Thank you! I have been looking for the source…I found it on Pinterest and wrote under the recipe that if anyone knew the original source to tell me! Awesome!

  7. Oma goodness gracious! This is simply genius! I can’t believe I have never thought of this before–such a simple concept with crazy amazing results! Definitely doing this the next time I bake cookies! Excuse all of the exclamation points, I am just super excited! (!!!!!!)
