This was the first item I ever made and learned in junior high school (back in 1972). It is much better if you use butter crisco use whole chuck chips some whole nuts and you must sift! The key is to not use a blender when adding the dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon. They are great and beautiful! Read More

This recipe is the ultimate chocolate chip recipe! It's better than your average bakery cookie and it completely satisfies a craving for chocolate with it's enormous amount of chocolate chips. Usually when I make this I make a double batch which makes up to 4 dozen or even more! This is my ulitmate favourite recipe! Read More

These were sweet cookies nice flavor but you def have to use the semisweet chips for this one a milk choc chip would be too sweet a cookie. They were different almost like there was a coating of crispy sugar on the outside. I'm not quite sure how to describe it - sandy? Mine took almost 11 minutes to cook though. Overall they were okay and both my guys said "Mmmmmmmm". Read More

I wasn't a particular fan of these but Hubs sure was. They're a tad on the flat and greasy side (which also made them a little on the fragile side too) but that's how he likes 'em. Personally I think these would benefit from a little more flour perhaps 1/2-3/4 cup. Using half butter half shortening was also a definite plus. Read More

These are good but not the best. They have too many chips in them and not enough salt. I increased the recipe to 72 servings. I think if I were to make them again I would increase the salt to 1 tsp instead of 3/4 tsp and I would only use 2 1/2 cups of chips instead of 3 1/2 cups. I also added nuts as my family thinks it isn't a good cookie if it doesn't have nuts. Read More

These are great cookies; although you would have to make these pretty tiny to get 48 cookies. I chose to make giant cookies and used my 1/4 cup scoop. I only ended up with 10 cookies. But even if you got 2-3 cookies for every 1 that I made that's only 20-30 cookies. Still these turned out beautiful. I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening. Perfectly round with a little crisping around the edges and a soft chewy center. I actually like that it doesn't make a lot of cookies because I like to try new recipes daily and don't need a lot of "extras" around. Thanks! Read More
