Reviews for Cindy's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Sort By :
"The batter tasted really good! But unfortunately the cookies did not bake well. The tops barely cooked and the bottoms burned up in 8 minutes. So be warned if you make Cindy's cookies don't cook for as long as it says!"
"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!"
