These cookies are a crowd pleaser, and easily modified! To keep cookies from cooking flat, make sure to cream the butter with the sugar (don't melt your butter!) And if you have time, refrigerate the dough before baking, and between batches Read More

Great cookies! The first time I made them they tasted great but came out pretty flat. The second time I didn't have any butter so I used butter-flavored Crisco (same amount). The cookies still tasted great but kept their shape much better and were big and thick. Food for thought. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This is more of a cake-like cookie than a crispy crunchy cookie for those who have a preference. At 350 the cookies begin to brown really fast so I lowered the temp. to 325. The dough is soft and 350 is too high of a temp. to bake at. I would suggest baking at 300-325 degrees. I don't understand why some say they have no flavor? Make sure you use salted butter. You can add a little extra salt if you would like. These are extremely flavorful and my favorite cake-like chocolate chip cookie recipe. I pressed a few M&M's into the tops of half of the cookies.

I can NOT figure out how these got ANY bad reviews. I just made mine and they have cooled and I cut one is half because it's to close to dinner....I ate the ENTIRE cookie. head hung in shame These are FABU and I followed the recipe to the letter. BUT....ROOM TEMP butter and eggs ladies and this is where a Kitchen-Aid mixer comes in really handy. I take my butter sugars eggs and vanilla and WHIP them until thick and creamy. I measured out my flour into a sieve along with my baking soda and a PINCH OF SALT (how that got omitted is a mystery to me) and sifted it together then stired in my chocolate chips and walnuts.....then dumped into my whipped butter mix and blend until MIXED ONLY! It's very important to NOT overbeat any cookie flour mixture. These came out crispy/buttery around the edges and soft in the middle. I used a BIG cookie scoop and got 8 cookies and I did NOT flatten them by the way. I hope this helps someone. These are a nice break from the Toll House recipe I normally use and I WILL make them again. Read More

I added 1/2 tsp of salt. These cookies are great for milk-dipping! They're airy enough to soak up a lot of milk quickly but strong enough to not fall apart in the glass. The walnuts are a nice touch. All in all a great recipe but not the be-all-end-all of chocolate chip cookies. Read More

This recipe is short 1/2 cup flour. it should call for exactly 1-1/2 cups of flour. otherwise way to FLAT. Also add another 1/4 cup of white sugar add 1/2 t salt omit the nuts and finally use Crisco instead of the butter. Make these changes and you'll have a 5 star recipe Read More
