    Best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever tried! I added peanut butter chips as well.....awesome! Followed the recipe to the Tee. The important part is not overbaking. Take them out of the oven when barely Browning on top. Let them sit for about 10-15 mins. Perfection! My new go-to.

    These were the best. Good fresh out the oven but in my opinion even better the day after. They’re chewy and chunky. :)

    Delicious cookies, crunchy in the outside and chewy in the inside, I changed the walnuts for mini m&m’s because of my kids. We will definitely make this cookies again.

    Others that I have made using other recipes have been just as good

    Excellent recipe. I didn’t add nuts due to a nut allergy and they were still excellent. I used a 3 tbsp cookie dough scoop and got 16 perfect cookies. I also used big chips. That made them look more bakery-like. Will make again!

    We really liked these cookies. This is day 2 and they are still moist and slightly chewy. Skip them if you want crispy cookies. Are perfect for adding to ice cream. I sliced one into eighths to lower the calories per serving.

    These cookies are FANTASTIC. I made them into smaller cookies (I made about 15) for a pot luck and they were the first items gone from the table. My only critique is that the next time I make these I would add a bit more salt. Otherwise, there were heavenly!
