Absolutely! Just double the recipe and bake accordingly! If you are making these for a crowd or hosting a Christmas Party, just make a double (or triple) batch and put them in the freezer! 

How do I bake the perfect cookies?

I think the perfect cookies come from baking the cookies at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Once the cookies start to turn light brown on the edges, remove the cookies from the oven and leave them on the cookie sheet to cool completely!

This will finish the cooking process and leave your cookies soft and chewy!
