    Misread the instructions and only added sugar rather than the brown sugar as well in the first step, I’m sure they would be five stars had I not done that and not added cinnamon per a recommendation from a friend. I’ll probably try a recipe that needs cream cheese next, these were my first cookies from scratch

    Absolutely the best. I top mine with “Sugar in the Raw” Turbinado cane sugar for a sweet crunch.

    Turns out great every time 👌🏻 I like to brown half of the butter instead of just melting it and I add a pinch of cinnamon, too.

    These were good but I think I’ll use regular sugar next time instead of sugar in the raw like she suggested.. not really into the grainy texture of that in this cookie..

    Delicious... it was soft, and a little bit crumbly, and it was just the right amount of everything!

    Great. The dough was a bit much to deal with. Wish it wasn’t so messy. But the result was amazing.

    Delicious! The dough was pretty sticky so I added an extra tbsp of flour and the consistently was perfect. I ended up getting 16 cookies out of the dough, which I baked for the full 11 minutes.

    I add just a lil bit more flour when the batter is runny. I think the most important step to remember is to let the cookies cool down in the oven for 30 mins after baking it for 11 mins. It lets the cookie surface to be crunchy but soft and cooked on the inside. A great basic cookie recipe!

    AWESOME! Two Christmas's ago my Aunt and I went all Momo'd out on cookies. What that means is my Grandmother (Momo) would make dozens and dozens and dozens....I really could go on-of cookies for Christams. That Christmas I decided that with my Aunts help we could pull off her cookie buffet which is something she did BY.HER.SELF! AMAGING RIGHT? Anyway. I have always looked for a different chewy, slightly crunchy and fluffy chocolate chip cookie recipe. Let me tell you, follow the instruction and you will have the BEST choclate chip cookie. We all...everyone loved these. I think we made about ehh 6-7 dozen of these alone. The next day, GONE. What I am saying is, if you love good chocolate chip cookies; this is an absolute must. ENJOY yall.

    They were good but... Looked nothing like that... they were really puffy and more like a stiff muffin. No complaints on taste or anything, just, wasn’t the type of cookie I was expecting from the pictures and video
