Thick chewy bad for you cookies

Long post title... I know. But it's true. These cookies are amazing!! Super thick and chewy and Sally's Baking Addiction gives all the reasoning for it in her post and why she uses the ingredients she does. One point she makes I would have never even thought of. When you roll the dough into balls, make them taller than wide, it makes the cookies fatter when they bake! WHY have I never thought to do this?? I always end up with thin cookies. I now know the secret!! YEAHH!!!!

Seriously, look at these things. PERFECT gift for Father's Day for the guy you don't know what to get. But, like the title says, these are NOT healthy. But that's ok people, you can eat not healthy things, just don't eat the whole batch at once ;) Which brings me to another awesome point she made. Roll up all the cookies and then freeze them on a cookie sheet. Once frozen toss them into a zip lock bag and BAM you get pre portioned cookies to make on the fly. This also means you can eat 2-3 warm out of the oven every time you feel like a cookie! No leftovers for this lady here!
The only changes I made to these were instead of the 1 cup chocolate chunks, I used 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks + 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips + 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts.

What tips do you have for cookie making? I feel like the most important is keeping the dough chilled, but she has some other great tips. Got any more tips for me?

Man, those look good. I'd kill for a cookie right now. Luckily, I've been doing that trick of Sally's for a few years now, and have some Movie Theatre Cookies in the freezer right now.

Hey, I don't see them as straight-up bad for you... Comfort food like that nourishes the soul, after all. :)

mmm. And if you have a toaster oven at work... need I say more?

You are SO right with that point! These are like therapy! :)

MMMMM good call!!!

So much smarter than me :) This is what happens when you spend too much of your time making healthy cookies that don't spread! :)

I'm down with that :) yum!!

It's so true! They are just calling your name! :)

Freezing ready-to-bake cookies is one of my favorite tricks! These look amazingly good!
