Great tasting but the recipe could use a few alterations. First cream the butter and sugars before adding the rest of the ingredients. Next double the recipe because it only makes about half of the amount it says. Also mine baked in 6 minutes. These are yummy cookies though! When I took them out of the oven they were much darker than the usual so I thought they'd be hard and dry but wuite the contrary! They were slightly crispy on the edges and moist and chewy in the center! Yahoo! Read More

This recipe was a waste of ingredients because once we mixed the dry ingredients and put the wet into that the mixture didn't turn out! Read More

Absolutely delicious! My family loved this recipe. I added 2 tsp. hot water for the perfect consistency. Crunchy around the edged and soft and chewy on the inside. It's so good it's sinful! Made 3 dozen small cookies. (1tsp per. cookie) Thanx for this recipe! Read More

Very good cookies and easy to make. I've made the Toll House recipe for 20 years but today I only had 1 stick of butter and I had promised my 6yr old that we could make cookies today! So I came on here looking for a recipe that called for only one stick of butter. It's honestly just as good as the toll house recipe. I'm definitely keeping this one because it makes far fewer cookies which means less baking tme and fewer calories in my belly;) I didn't mix the ingredients exactly how it says in the recipe. I did it the same as I do when making Toll House. Cream the butter and sugar first then mix in the egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl add to wet mixture while the mixer is running. Then add chips. I use a scoop for all my cookies which makes about 2-2.5" cookies. This recipe made 36 of them cooked for 6.5 minutes. These are delicious according to the 2 kids and 2 adults in my household! Read More

This is very delicious. The texture was perfect as well. Slightly crispy outside and nice and chewy on the inside. The stay moist even after a few days. The only problem I had with this recipe is that it was a bit too sweet! sweeter than most choc. chip cookies and I have made dozens of different recipes! So next time I make these I will use much less sugar. But again I loved the texture. Read More
