This recipe won first place in our county fair. My son submitted it and it won! We increased the flour by 1/4 cup (to make 2 cups of flour total). We used two eggs (how does one get a half of an egg??)and we used a layer of white chips and swirled choc/white chips. It all fits in the jar if you pack it in well. We will be making these for Christmas gifts this year. Read More

Cookie were way too sweet. I think that the chocolate chips should be fewer. Also I used 2 eggs, I didn't understand the 1 1/2 eggs. How does one half an egg? Cookies were a bit flat. Read More

This recipe is super easy to put together and are probably the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. They are a little crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. I increased the flour to 2 cups and changed to 2 eggs and decreased the chocolate chips to 1-1/2 cups. I also found that if you pack every layer as you go there is too much room left open at the top of the jar. So I only packed it down at the top before adding a final layer of chocolate chips. (I layered it like this: flour chocolate chips flour brown sugar flour and chocolate chips. Very pretty! Thank you! Read More

I made a dozen of these to give away as party favors for my son's first birthday party. Turned out great but so much chocolate I decided to call them "Mostly Chocolate Chip Cookies!" I also left the chocolate chips out of the flour mixture so I could create a more layered look in the jar: 1/2 flour mixture 1c chocolate chips brown sugar 1/2 flour mixture 1c chocolate chips. Can't wait to give them out! Read More

I doubled this recipe to more-than taste test! I actually omitted the eggs and only used 2 cups of Chocolate Chips instead of 4. This recipe is absolutely the best. I have used the Toll House (Copyright) recipe for years but will now only use their chips! This is a very rich and crisp cookie! My entire family loved it! Read More

Great! Great! Great! I followed suggestions and made a few add-ons of my own: 2 cups flour 2 eggs and using 1 cup white chips 1 cup semi sweet chips 1/2 cup walnuts 1 big tsp cinnamon and using 2 tsp vanilla. The baking temp is perfect for 8min timing too. All the dry ingredients DID fit with good packing down and the layering looked beautiful! (flour/baking soda mixed 1/2 Bwn. Sugar white sugar 1/2 brn sugar cinnamon ch.chips walnuts white chips) I did refridgerate the dough for about 15 minutes before baking and I think that helped them stay big and puffy without falling flat. These turned out so beautiful and yummy and the cinnamon really added a holiday feeling that was not overwhelming. This will be my "must use" mix from now on- thank you for this great recipe!
