Reviews for Easy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
"I just made these and they are terrific. I left out the milk chocolate chips and it was fine with just over 1/2 cup of semi sweet chips. One note though, if you are using salted butter, lower the salt to 1/4 tsp. I found it too salty and i did use salted butter. Otherwise they're great! I plan to use real white chocolate to dip them into, not the candy coating stuff. I am freezing them now, and will take them out and dip into white chocolate just before I give them as gift in a box. I may even use them in my Xmas baking gift tins!!"
"Very easy recipe! Grandchildren love it!"
"This has become one of my go-to cookie recipes. It never fails to impress."
"These turned out well, but were too sweet for my taste. I won't be making them again because it was just too much chocolate."
"My favorite choc chip recipe. Has gotten lots of compliments."
