MY REVIEW

"Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and I've been on the search for a great recipe. This is it! Soft and gooey just like the family likes it. I left out the walnuts bc we don't like them in cookie recipes. A must try!"

MY REVIEW

"I have used this recipe hundreds of times. I use it for events or just to give my husbands crew on the submarine something sweet. They have always been something that has gotten everyones attention and I always leave people begging for more (or the recipe)."

"This is the most amazing cookie dough recipe that I have found. I have made so many different varieties of this cookie that it keeps my family on their toes!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2013

"There is a MISPRINT in the online post of this recipe versus the cookbook. It calls for only 1/3 cup butter which makes the dough dry and hard. The cookbook version calls for 2/3 cup butter. I only noticed the discrepancy after preparing a large batch of dough!Make it with 2/3 cup butter, and you will have a tasty cookie!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2012

"These are the best chocolate chip cookies. I have made them at different elevations and they have never failed me- they turn out perfect every time! I love that they look like they could be on the cover of a magazine. I replaced the shortening with coconut oil and it worked great :)"
