Two of my most favorite cookies in the world come from Ben’s Cookies and Levain Bakery in New York City. I have tried to combine the best qualities of both into this cookie. My family says these are the best cookies yet! I hope you give them a try! ~Amy

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    1/4 cup scoop is about the size I used, and it only made about 10 cookies, but any size you choose will work. ~Amy 🍪
