    The batter seemed dry at first but they turned out perfect! Used 10oz of chocolate chips rather than 12.

    Really good I used white and milk chocolate chips and they were amazing ,you should use 2 eggs instead of one much better result
    Getting quite hard after a few minutes, taste's okay.

    Made this for kids and they came out perfect. They said these were the best chocolate chip cookies they ever had!

    I've been making this recipe for awhile now. I have never left a review until now. I use a dark non-stick pan and cook them at 350 degrees instead of 375. In the past I have found the cookies to be flat, with dark brown bottoms. Today I decided to use 2 eggs instead of 1. HUGE IMPROVEMENT!! These are the best cookies ever! Try using milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, with 2 eggs though!

    taste alot of butter and tasted like cornbread
    Our go to cookie recipe. I'm 9 months pregnant and my sweet tooth has been crazy, we needed something that was simple to make and doesn't take too long and these were perfect.

    Easy to make, but tasted too buttery, maybe I will use margarine next time

    I just made them and while they were tasty- I used less sugar- the texture was weird- more like cake, not cookies. Maybe if I used the recommended amount of sugar the texture would 've been crisp. But then they'd be far too sweet!

    I didn’t have enough chocolate chips so I substituted with dried coconut. They still tasted pretty good though. Super easy to make too

    So far as I was placing them on the sheet it looked too little for a family of four. So I would recommend making two batches in other words the cookies were splendid!

    They were delicious. The only problem is that they were a bit dry. Great overall though! :)

    Came out great! They were so easy to make and I added white and dark chocolate disks in addition to the chocolate chips. They didn't last ten minutes! Definitely adding this recipe to my collection!

    I've used this recipes a few times and it works great every time. I use regular flour and just add 1.5 tsp baking powder and .5 tsp of salt. Great basic go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe!

    These were absolutely delicious! I made them with my 3 year old, they were so easy and quick. They are pretty dense, so eating just one hits the spot. Side note, I did not have cooking spray, so I spread vegetable oil on the sheet instead. I think this gave them a nice crispy bottom, since the cookie itself is fluffy and soft. Definitely making these again!

    Cookies came out perfect! It took longer than normal but that was probably due to me double checking the recipe to make sure I was doing everything right!

    Eeh. The cookies are fine don't get me wrong but this recipe need some tweaking it's a little on the Sweetside.

    these turned out perfect! i baked for 10 minutes, and they were the perfect consistency. if yours still look a little underdone after 10 min, its okay they just need to settle and cool. hopefully they will help sell our house!
