101 Cookies

Today for my Tuesday recipe I'm just posting one of our favorite cookies.  It makes a big batch and that is why it is called 101 cookies.  I make them bigger by using the scoop that makes round balls that are about a heaping tablespoon of dough.



 I only get 64 cookies using this method.  The larger the cookie the longer they take to bake.
