Temptations: From a Small Bakery, a Virtual Mountain of a Cookie
From this brownstone on West 74th Street, Connie McDonald and Pamela Weekes produce what may possibly be the largest, most divine chocolate chip cookies in Manhattan. The fat round cookies, about an inch high and three inches in diameter, are packed with walnut halves and chunks of chocolate and weigh almost as much as a grapefruit.
How do the bakers keep the cookies from spreading out flat in the oven? Guesses are welcome, but they refuse to divulge their secret.
