The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

 One of my new activities is baking for school kids in the poor little town I've adopted.

 A group of kids gets dropped off at the community center each afternoon after school.  They spend the next 3 hours studying and being tutored for their SAT's and working on projects they have come up with that benefit the community.  You sprinkle these cookies with sea salt before baking them.

 So once a week I  make them a treat.  Yesterday they got my giant chocolate chips cookies and milk.

These are commercial cookie sheets which I used to transport them to the center.  They don't even fit in my oven.  So you can see how big each of the cookies are.  They weigh 4 oz. each.  The kids went crazy for these.
