I decided to bake some cookies to give to the family for the 4th of July. To please the grandchildren, I thought I would make them three times bigger than normal, so when their parents say "now just one cookie" they will have a cookie they can feast upon! These cookies are so good that I had to freeze them ahead so Grandpa and Grandma would not eat them all up before the 4th. These make great ice cream sandwich cookies!
