Tiffany's Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

It's a great cookie and I will try the cinnamon to see what that brings to the party!

This cookie recipe is sooo yummy...I followed the recipe ingredients exactly. I just didn't put the flour, salt, etc. onto parchment paper b/c that just seemed silly, just put it in a bowl and mix. : )
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.
this recipe is perfect except for the fact that my cookies turned out a bit too salty.... they had a distinct salty taste. otherwise they were great! slightly crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside and the taste was on point. gonna use this recipe for spirit week at school soon! thanks for sharing :D
pretty good, but I've had better. Needs a little more flavor for me. Maybe more chocolate or something.
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
These cookies are great! My 4yo daughter helped me make them, which is usually a recipe for disaster (none of the measurements are exact because she spills a little here and there), but they turned out fine. I didn't see they called for cinnamon (optional) until we were already making them, so I used a little pumpkin pie spice, and it was a nice touch. I don't normally add spices to chocolate chip cookies, nor quite so much vanilla, but those things just might make the difference for these delicious cookies. My husband says this should be our only chocolate chip cookie recipe! I see that some people think it's too salty. I was using salted butter, so I only used a pinch of salt, instead of a whole teaspoon. And another reviewer said they lacked flavor - I also used milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet because my husband prefers milk chocolate. The flavor in this combination was just very very good!
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.
I'm not crazy about the slight cinnamon taste of this cookie. I love cinnamon, but it just doesn't seem to blend right in this case. Also, probably my fault, but the cookies were more like wafers. I tried refrigerating the dough and changing the cooking time but nothing helped. The only thing I can think that I might have done wrong was sifting the flour before measuring it? So I am still searching for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe.
It was wonderfully soft and yummy! My family devoured these in a day!! I think I will add a little more cinnamon next time though.
Very good recipe. The cookies turned out chewy and soft. I omitted the cinnamon and added 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder. I also used 1/2 semisweet and 1/2 milk chocolate chips instead of all semisweet. I didn't use parchment paper either. I used ungreased baking sheets and it worked just fine.
Easy to meddle with without totally messing it up.
This is my son's go to chocochip cookie. I really like it. It's a great treat. Very good. Love the amount of salt.
I've made this recipe many times. So I though I should write a review. 1. I've never really liked nuts in cookies so I never added them. 2. Never used parchment paper 3. I use a teaspoon instead of a table spoon. 4. Never used cinnamon. Other than that, great recipe!
Beautiful cookies! Stayed thick and didn't fall when cooling like my cookies normally do. Followed the advice in the reviews in regards to cutting back on the salt if using salted butter and wish that I hadn't.
I used m&m's instead if nuts but left everything else exactly the same. This ended up making about 48 cookies and even though I left the last batch in for 13 minutes some if them didn't cook all the way. Next time I'm adding less vanilla and will probably leave out cinnamon.
It was really good. I like to eat a little bit of the dough while cooking and this stuff tasted great! I didn't add the nuts and only about half of the cinnamon and it turned out amazingly. Friends were over and we just couldn't keep the snack plate full!
I thought these were alright. I didn't really think they were cakey like some mentioned. They definitely have a more homemade appearance. I did cut the cinnamon and salt, based on some of the reviews, by half. I can't see the point in wasting a sheet of parchment to mix the dry ingredients so I just used it to bake on. I made half the recipe and it made 31 cookies. I guess, my biggest issue with the recipe was that they were just a little too sugary for my personal taste.
I substituted the sugar with honey and, they are amazing ??
The cookie recipe is in the taste of the maker and eater, I love this recipe (I don't add the cinnamon or nuts and maybe cut back on the salt), but baked on a silpat or parchment they are excellent to me! This is my go to recipe, over and over again! (And they freeze very well! ) Thanks for the recipe!
A little flatter than I was looking for but still delish
Tasted great, but crumbled very easily.
Very good my first time ever making cookies from scratch turned out excellent
This is hands down the best Choco Chip recipe I have made. I used Bitterweet chocolate, kosher salt and added the cinnamon and man, it's out of this world!!! I will add this to my favs and making them lots!
I didn't change anything
Excellent cookies! I did not use the parchment paper and it made no difference.
My daughter and I make these cookies all of the time with a few adjustments...use 1/2 bag (6 oz.) of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 bag (6oz.) of white baking chips (I use Nestle Premier White or Ghiradelli White Baking chips) and add 1 box of French Vanilla pudding (dry). I do not add any nuts and I omit the cinnamon. The compliments never end and I am always told these are the BEST chocolate chip c ookies ever!
With the cinnamon these tasted nothing like traditional chocolate chip cookies. It was also a bit too cakey for my taste. Sadly, the refrigerated dough I buy at the store was better. My husband was appreciative that I tried, but kept making faces and asking what was so wrong with them. Not exactly the reaction I'm going for.
I seriously loved these cookies and so did my husband. I didn’t have chocolate chips on hand so I substituted them for butterscotch chips, and added a cup of shredded coconut as well. Mine had to bake for 13 minutes before they were done, but they worked out exactly as promised, moist and soft on the inside, with a little chew to the edges. Will be making again very soon!!
Only change I made was equal parts brown sugar and white sugar. Exactly as pictured. Perfection!
not sweet. tasted like flour
This is the second time I have made these & they are great! 1st time with cinnamon, 2nd without. The second time I added all ingredients to the bowl (except the chocolate chips) and used the mixer to mix everything rather than mixing in steps. It wasn't intentional (I was distracted by my daughter making her own batch) but they turned out just fine. I also was about 1/2 Cup short of flour. My husband said he thought it was my best batch yet! Lol, I've only made 6 or 7 batches. Not always this recipe. Enjoy!!!!
My 9 yr old and I made these last night. They were so simple to make. He got to do a lot of the mixing and measuring. He is always trying to help but this is a kid friendly recipe to be sure. He was in it til the end. Now for flavor absolutely delicious. Texture was crispy around the edges, soft and chewy.
These came out perfectly and my family loved them. Thanks for a great recipe!
First chocolate chip recipe that really makes as much as it says! They are nice sized chocolate chip cookies! I baked them a little longer, I think. I baked between 18 and 20 minutes for each batch They taste delicious!
It was delish! We substituted the sugar for 3/4 cup of honey and it still was great! It tasted eggy, but that was fine with us. very chewy!
Followed directions, except i left out cinnamon and used sea salt and add pecans. Used and ice cream scoop to drop them on the paper and they came out great!!
I followed the recipe as is except I substituted chocolate chunks for the chocolate chips. They were good except the amount of salt could have been reduced by half. I would make this again with that adjustment. They turned out just the way I like them to look at 10 min in. I also didn't bother with parchment paper.
I’ve made them twice now, used all whole wheat flour, they’re quick (don’t roll them into balls) and bake up chewy but solid... they keep disappearing, so I think my family approves. I can’t taste the cinnamon, but included it anyway.
I added 3 oz of cream cheese and it was delicious!!! I also omitted the nuts.
Wonderful taste, added almonds and they were amazing.
Worked out very well. I am gluten sensitive, some substituted King Arthur cup for cup sustitute. I also blended 1/2 butter with shortening to keep them a little softer. Mixed white and dark chocolate chips. Will use a little less cinnamon next time. A great result.
I omitted the cinnamon because I was out of it and baked those quite dark and big. Apart from that, I did everything as written in the recipe (of course I didn't mix my dry ingredients on a sheet of parchment paper, because I'm a grown man and that's a very silly idea). I like the results - this formula produces very fine, basic chocolate chip cookies. Might experiment with additional flavourings in the future to make the taste more interesting and unconvetional.
Instructions were very easy to follow, and they turned out amazing. 🥰
I didn't add the nuts, but they still turned out amazing.
Perfect! I cut the recipe in half and skipped the cinnamon.
I used ths recipe for the first time to make small gifts for 15 people, and am SO glad I chose this one! Made it just as directed, but swapped some chocolate chips for peanut butter ones. It has just replaced my ex-favorite recipe in my file!!
My family loved these cookies. When they gone the wanted me to make more
We are ten year olds and they are sooooooo good!!!!!!
These were exceptionally good tasting cookies, only downfall was they were a bit flat. Will have to play with ingredients a little.
Didn't like these at all, but I think it's just a personal preference. The cookie was flat and ugly (possibly because of the butter?). But they left a bad after taste in my mouth, that I can only guess is from the cinnamon. And I love cinnamon. It's why I tried the recipe in the first place.
I am allergic to chocolate so i substituted the choc with butterscotch
I just made them and they taste great except they are very cakey....why is that and how do I fix it?
Could be better
I did not add cinnamon or nuts but followed the recipe exactly. These cookies were perfect at 10-11 minutes on 350 degrees. They were delicious. They made about 24-27 cookies as well!
I added a little something to mine and had to give it extra time. 15-18 minutes were good for the cookies I made. They are delicious!
Absolutely amazing! I put a mini York peppermint patti in the middle on top and it’s sooooooo good. Awesome recipe! Thank you
I made them twice my husband really like them. I used white chocolate in them and didn't add the nuts. instead I put a 1/4 of a whole walnut on top. and when they came out of the oven I drizzle melted chocolate on top. I Gave most of them away everyone seem to really like them.
Tasted great! Followed the directions exactly. Will definitely make again!
i didn't use the cinnamon but it was still really good and i recommend it.
My girlfriend said these are the best cookies she's ever had and it's because of the cinnamon you people who are omitting the cinnamon are making a mistake
Best chocolate chip cookie I have ever made!
I made these using a little less butter only because I was out, and they still turned out delicious!
To salty with a tsp of salt plus the butter. I'm going to try them with half the salt and maybe no salt butter
I made this as directed except for the salt because I used salted butter. I only used a pinch of salt. They were pretty good but only stayed soft for a few minutes. I didn't like the cinnamon in this even though I really like cinnamon usually.
Super quick and simple recipe. Cookies came together very nicely and were very yummy!
No changes made. My new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
It was amazing tasted like a little piece of heaven
Followed the recipe as written--even using the pain-in-the-rear parchment paper for all but the last batch. The only thing I did different was to put the batter in the fridge for around 45 before baking--I refrigerate all of my cookie batters between mixing and baking. These cookies were SO good and SO chewy. They even kept their texture after being on a plate overnight (I don't have a cookie jar but shut a plate of cookies in a closed oven overnight to 'protect' them). I found the parchment slid a lot and made it hard to remove the baked cookies. I cooked the last batch without the paper and they browned and crisped quicker. This is a great recipe that will definitely go in the 'keeper' file!
great cookies tiffany
I followed the recipe closely but my cookies came out too flat and runny. Shapeless and flat. The taste was fine. Maybe next time I can add 1 more tablespoon of fluor to see if they hold their shape better.
These cookies came out perfect! I didn't change a thing! The second batch is on the way!
Looks good, make sure to chill the dough before baking at least 45 min
The batter was so fluffy and brown and the cookies came out great. So easy to make!!!
Made these tonight. They were an okay chocolate chip cookie, much better than the last cakey type cookie recipe I tried. Still not what I was looking for. Not a sweet enough batter or something. My daughter and my boyfriend ate them, but I am looking for that cookie they rave over :)
My kids, their friends, my neighbors, co-workers, EVERYBODY has been asking me since I made these cookies when I'm going to bake them again! They are so good!
I just made these cookies for the first today, and there great
I kept it all the same except I reduced the salt by half and kept the brown sugar and granulated sugar the same to make them soft. They stayed soft even a few days after being baked.
these are the best they are great by it self and great with a glass of milk.The BestEVER
Made these for my grown son's birthday, instead of cake, & he loved them. He likes his chocolate chip cookies pure....so I didn't use nuts. But, I will try that with the next batch. Easy to make.....not flat cookies.....thicker & soft inside.
I tried this recipe and I love it. Although I tweaked it a little but adding a tsp of white vinegar or lemon juice to keep the cookies soft. I added the cinnamon to it and it gave the cookies a lil uumph. If u are adding salt please use unsalted butter or your cookies will be salty. Enjoy
We didn’t have enough butter and so we substituted 3/4 c canola oil for the 1 c butter. Absolutely gorgeous and delicious. The cinnamon adds a depth that I really love (my kids commented on it too). Will definitely make again!
I made mine with cinnamon and used walnuts. They were so gooood!!!
Very good recipe. I did reduce the salt, as I was using salted butter, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I also had to cook a few minutes longer than 10-12 minutes, but that could merely be the difference in my oven vs another
Just like my moms!
