Reviews for Favorite Chocolate Cookies
"These were super easy and super good! I made them for my son's Valentine's Day party tomorrow, taking sucker sticks and inserting those in after coming out of the oven and then dipping in white chocolate."
"These are good cookies, but I wasn't amazed. Mine came out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I will keep this recipe in mind, but continue my search for a perfect chocolate cookie."
"Made these for a bbq we're going to tomorrow. I hope I don't eat them all before then. They're fantastic! I used Hershey's Dark Cocoa and dark chocolate chips. Gonna have to try them with peanut butter chips."
"These cookies are really easy and GOOD!! I only had a small handful of chocolate chips and a half bag of butterscotch chips left so I combined them and they were yummy! I cannot wait, however to try these with white chocolate or peanut butter chips as others have stated!!"
"Wonderful with peanut butter chips... but want to try with other chips as well."
"I doubled the batch. One with peanut butter chips and the other with white chocolate. My husband likes the white chocolate better. They came out great. I had to fuss with my cookies (and new oven) until I read a hint about putting the rack one slot above the middle. I've had perfect cookies since. These will go into my 'favorite recipe' box. I can't wait to share them at work tomorrow."
"Amazing cooked with Crisco instead of butter. I also used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of white chips to make them extra chocolatey!"
"These cookies were excellent! I also substituted peanute butter chips instead of vanilla chips. I also only used 3/4 of a bag since I don't like alot of chips in my cookies. Everyone loved these cookies, they were very rich!"
