"elephant ears"

My mom used to have a recipe for something she called elephant ears. These weren't the standard elephant ear, but a chocolate chip cookie variant: I think they called for melted butter, and all brown sugar, but I haven't been able to reproduce them, maybe Kenji can. They would spread very wide while baking, then rise up a little, so that when they ccoled, they would flatten out all wrinkly (like an elephant's ear, I guess). They were very chewy and delicious. Anyone ever hear of them?
