    this is my govto recipe now. ive made it at least 6 times, both the large version andvthe regular sized. for smaller cookies i decrease the temp to 350. i love that because you start with cold butter and eggs, you don't have to chill the dough before baking.

    It definitely didn’t turn out like Levain cookies at all. I knew I wouldn’t like it once I tasted the cookie dough but I was hoping once it was heated it would taste better. Nope!

    I made these twice but instead of walnuts I used peanut butter chips. This is my new favorite cookie recipe!

    These were wonderful! I didn’t use the walnuts, but used dark chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I also made them smaller and they are still really really good, but not gooey. I will absolutely make these again and make them bigger to try to get the gooey part!

    Amazing. We don’t use the walnuts, but instead add both dark chocolate and peanut butter chips. We also max bake them for 11 minutes; any longer and they’re not as gooey as we like them.

    I didn't quite follow directions because I was making these for Christmas and the recipe only makes 8 if you follow the directions exactly. I followed the instructions for the ingredients except I used a cup of walnuts instead of 2. But I needed more than 8 cookies so I made them normal size and tried to modify the cooking time. By doing this, though, I was not able to get the gooey center that these seem to be known for. Flavor was good and if I make them again, I will make bigger cookies so I can try to get the gooey center.

    These were very tasty and decadent cookies. The only trouble I had was my batter was very, very thick. Baked them in DENVER and 12 mins was the best time.

    I finally made it today, it was delicious 😋 my husband loved it. I used less sugar and flour. I made 27 cookies with this recipe and done in 7 minutes. I’ll make this again. Thanks much 😋

    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.

    So good! I reduced the chic chips by 1/4c and made the cookies smaller, glad I did. Restaurant quality cookies. Om nom...

    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!
