Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
August 16, 2003

Update: Learn from my mistake...Use MARGARINE rather than butter in this recipe if you want a thick cookie. Wow! This cookie is absolutely heavenly! I've tried many of the other high rated chocolate chip cookies from this site, and this is by FAR the best one yet! I won't look any where else for a chocolate chip cookie recipe. The cookie comes out soft and think with literally layers of chocolate chips inside! Like many other reviewers, I did not grease my pan and the cookies came off just fine once they were cool. Also, make sure your eggs are close to room temp rather than straight from the fridge. Fifteen minutes was the perfect time to bake these. The edges are lightly browned, and the middle of the cookie may look slightly undone, but trust me, they are done perfectly at this time! Lastly, definitely chill the dough for a while. Forty-five minutes did the trick for my batch! Thank you Elizabeth! Wonderful cookies!:-) Ally
