Not a very good recipe. 8 cups of flour is ridiculous and so is 4 tsps of baking soda . I used 5 cups of flour and it was still way too much. This is not a "basic" recipe, basic would be 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, 3 cups of four, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and a small amount of water. Worst cookies I've ever made.
This is the bad recipe for cookies. It's nothing against the person that wrote this but REALLY! 8 CUPS OF FLOUR AND ONLY TWO EGGS. That is crazy ! I even tried to make these cookies and lets just say they didn't taste right. Plus milk goes with cookies, not in them! This is a good recipe for biscuits but not cookies.
I was craving the taste of cookie dough and this was the perfect recipe. I halved it and then added half a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, taste just like the cookie dough you can get from Papa Murphey's. The chocolate chips made it a little rich, though, so it will take me days to get through this recipe.
Just made these great recipe we added chocolate chips but I don't know what temp and time to cook at? It made a lot! Way more than expected about 3 quarters of it went in the freezer!
Very simple recipe, and easy to half! Half was more than enough for me. I used this to make shark-fin cookie's for ocean-themed cupcakes I'm making for my husband. They have a nice taste, not overwhelming. The texture is a little dryer than some cookies, but I prefer it that way. I did add an extra egg, as the dough was way more crumbly. But all around, I'll be using this again.
