I only made two small adjustments to this recipe--I used instant CHEESECAKE pudding and half milk chocolate/half dark chocolate chips in this recipe. Baked at 350 the cookies were done baking at ten minutes. Rich and decadent these cookies are amazing. Read More

These cookies are WAY too dry. The cookies did come out thick and chewy as promised but the flavour and texture was really lacking. As stated before they were really dry the only way they were edible at all was dipped in tea. Read More

These cookies were just OK for me but my granddaughters liked them a lot. I followed the recipe as is and the cookies did come out thick and chewy---just not buttery enough for me. Read More

Crisp edge and chewy center. This recipe is excellent. My 20 year old asked me for the recipe. She said it's better than toll house. I'm inclined to agree! Read More

I tried this recipe and followed it without making any adjustments. It came out terrific. I was looking for a thicker lighter cookie and this was perfect. Now I have the rich buttery chocolate chip cookie recipe and this one that is equally delicious yet different consistency. Thank you allrecipes! you never let me down. TTFN Patti Forsythe Read More

I didn't read the comments on this recipe until after I had already made the dough. So before I added the chocolate chips I tasted the dough. I decided to add a 1/4 cup of white sugar (which seemed to make it tastier) I also did not have unsalted butter so I used the salted butter that I had- and omitted the salt from the ingredients. However I would tell anyone using this recipe to watch the bake time because mine were done in 9-10 minutes. Any longer they would have burned. So overall they were okay My husband also agreed with a previous poster in saying that the cookies were "missing something". A little disappointed..... Read More

I made these cookies and i think the dough tasted better than the cookie but the cookies were very good! The cookies were chewy but they were not thick at all they were very thin maybe I didn't make them big enough I dont know and i thought the vanilla pudding mix would give it a different kick but i couldnt taste the pudding at all! but overall the cookies are very good I would make them again!
