Posting a photo that is meant to convey size is always a tricky thing. Sure, the cookie looks big, but maybe my hands are freakishly small. In this case, you are just going to have to take my word for it: the chocolate chip cookie at the Bryant Park Le Pain Quotidien is gigantic. It's also pretty tasty too. Making the cookie chewy isn't really a practical option for a cookie this size, so they go with the thin and crunchy approach. As somebody who normally likes my cookies soft, I found the crunch to be strangely appealing; the perfect companion to an afternoon cup of tea. Admittedly, it's probably not the best chocolate chip cookie in the city (especially if soft cookies are your thing), but the look on your co-workers' faces when you whip it out will be completely worth the $3.50 price tag.
