Have been baking these since I was a wee lass. My family thinks they're lovely, as do I.
Great all-round cookie; however, my husband is stuck on the chocolate chip cookie recipe you make with vanilla instant pudding (that is why it is a 4 out of 5). The cookie is soft and has a good overall texture. I did follow the directions exactly but did cut the recipe in half. The key to the soft cookie is refrigerating it for the hour. I recently made the "copy that" Mrs.Field's chocolate chip cooke and the refrigeration was the secret to her recipe as well.
I didn't realize how much these actually made, luckily for me a few fire fighters were stealing them as they cooled down in the kitchen. They came out great and stayed moist, and were a big hit for the Bake event I gave them too.They were perfect, and I plan to bake them again tonight!I also added walnuts
Made these cookies last week for my family. They're a good, basic chocolate chip cookie. Tend to be on the crisper side. If they're too crispy for you, toss a slice of bread in your cookie jar. They'll soften right up!
Perfect cookies! Crunchy outside and soft centers. I used all butter and followed the directions exactly (including chilling for 1 hour!). My only complaint...the 5 lbs I am pretty sure I just gained. Thanks for a great recipe!
