I followed this recipe exact only omitting the cinnamon as it was optional. The nuts I used in this recipe were pecans. Instead of baking it on parchment, I just cooked them as I usually do on an ungreased, unlined baking sheet. They turned out perfect--just like the picture. Thumbs up from the whole family. They're already half gone! Read More

In terms of ingredients one chocolate chip cookie recipe is pretty much like the rest. It's the subtle differences in those ingredients that in my view distinguish a mediocre or average chocolate chip cookie from a great one. This one is average. The flavor was okay tho' I did reduce the salt by half and the cookie was just fine with that amount. But for me they're too greasy and soft. (Not cake-like at all as some reviewers have remarked. Not even close.) A little more flour perhaps a quarter cup or equalizing the amounts of brown sugar and granulated sugar (brown sugar tends to make cookies softer) would probably take care of the problem. But then that would be a different recipe illustrating my point that it's the little nuances of a basic recipe that take it from good to great. Read More

Wow this is great! It's my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I wouldn't have thought to add cinnamon but it gives a special something extra. The only thing I would suggest is using unsalted butter. It doesn't specify to do so in the recipe but maybe using salted butter and the salt called for in the recipe is the reason some had less than perfect results? I'm not a pro but my cookies turned out great and that's what I used. Read More

Made these today turned out great. I used mini chocolate chips (that's what I had) and sprinkled sea salt on top before baking to bring out the flavor. This is a great recipe will definitely make again. My husband said they were the best chocolate chip cookies he's ever had. Read More

my cookies came out perfect!! I didn't add any cinnamon or salt and I made sure my butter was completely melted I read somewhere it makes a difference. I had to leave my cookies in for 20 - 25 minutes 10-12 wasn't enough they were still raw in the middle. I wish I could upload a picture it wont let me for some reason but thanks for the recipe Read More
