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!
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!
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 :)
Someone Pinned these as the best cookies. I felt they had too much flour. The dough was crumbly and they did not spread well. Back to TollHouse for me.
