I'm glad to see the recipe has been revised! I too had to guess at mixing. The size of the pan is also not mentioned. The first time I made them I used a smaller baking sheet and I had to bake them for about 30 minutes. This time I used a 15 x 10 pan and it was better. I still had to cook them for 18 minutes yet they are still the gooey texture you should look for. These are very easy to mix up! I would recommend not greasing the baking sheet; with this amount of oil it's really not necessary and makes the batter much easier to spread. I add 3t of baking powder and 1t of salt to the recipe with all-purpose flour. Read More

These are overall a good recipe...2 cups of choc chips is waaayy too much even for a choco lover I used just 1 cup. I also used a 1/4 c. less oil which made the batter a little bit stiffer but the whole cup seemed like too much. They are still very oily and moist. these take much longer than 13 minutes to cook more like 25 and are still gooey like the recipe says. Read More

So easy and fast... If you don't have self-rising flour on hand (which I did not) just be sure to add a little baking soda and baking powder. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and was quite pleased with the results. Although it's not my favorite bar cookie it's definitely very good and and I would definitely make it again. I also love that the ingredients are things I usually have on hand - great for satisfying sudden cookie cravings! Read More

I added 1 cup craisins and 1 cup chopped almonds instead of the chocolate chips. I also used 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup oil instead of 1 cup oil. They were very good! Read More

These are an awesome change from the traditional chocolate chip cookie. I'm glad someone went in and fixed the mistakes in the recipe. If you make it just as it is now you will be fine. Read More

This recipe has lots of room for improvement. Specifying the size of baking pan required would help a lot since this greatly affects the baking time. I also agree with some of the other reviewers in that the cookies are very bland and have too many chocolate chips. Easy to make but I'm not sure I would make them again. Read More

My 1 and 2 year old daughters loved them but my husband and I both agreed they were bland and not even close to being sweet enough. I didn't use self-rising flour so maybe that was the issue? Read More
