Nothing better, indeed: Oversize and dense with chocolate chips, raisins, pecans, and more, these chunky cookies might just be the ultimate.

Hello, just a little thing, the correct expression in French is "nec plus ultra", but the recipe looks great!

I always add extra flour, a little bit at a time, when I make this recipe. When I follow the recipe exactly, the dough is way too runny. The extra flour makes it turn out exactly as it does in the picture.

I tried this recipe today; chilled the dough for 45 minutes and used a 2 oz scoop. I substituted 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup craisins (toasted the pecans too), The bake time is too long-I would take them out at 15 minutes tops. I ended up with 20 cookies and they were large cookies.

Perhaps chilling the dough would work out to be better. The batter was thin. 'Thought perhaps the amount of flour should be increased. Delicious flavor.

A cup is 8 oz a mug would be too much. A china teacup that sits on a saucer usually is 6 oz if that helps you any.

There's a mistake, it's "Nec Plus Ultra" which means "the very best". http://www.linternaute.com/dictionnaire/fr/definition/nec-plus-ultra/

I have made these several times with great success. Last weekend I made them with chopped dates instead of raisins and they were WONDERFUL!!

I recommend cutting the baking time down to around 15 minutes. My first batch was burned and hard, but after cutting down the baking time, they turned out chewy and tasty.
