These cookies are an ode to our friend, Frank. The first time I ever saw this cookie was at his 40th birthday party. They are his absolute favorite cookie. I believe they are called jumbo chip or triple chip cookies as well, but we just call them the Franks. I tweaked the recipe I saw on Nestle’s website because I could never get the recipe right. It was always too dry and the cookies were flat, which is unacceptable to me. Anyways, in this recipe I use an instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz size). You can always use a differemt flavor that you would like. You can also change up the chips, as long as you use 3 cups total. Remember – 1) scoop your flour from your container into your measuring cup, 2) chill the scooped out cookie dough for a few hours, and 3) preheat your oven for 20 minutes to 350 degrees to ensure the right baking temp.
