These over-sized cookies are fun to make, delicious to eat, and you can turn them into giant ice cream sandwiches with your favorite ice cream.
Serves: makes about 12 cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes


1 package (18 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bar Dough
1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds, macadamia nuts, pecans and/or walnuts
1/4 cup (1.5 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels or Premier White Morsels, optional

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Crumble the cookie dough into medium bowl. Add the nuts and mix thoroughly. Drop by 1/4-cup measure onto ungreased baking sheets. Leave an inch or two between them.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on the baking sheets for 1 minute and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Microwave the morsels in a heavy-duty plastic bag on high (100%) power (medium-high [70%] for white morsels) for 30 seconds and knead until smooth. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from the bag; drizzle over each cookie.
