These soft chocolaty cookies can be easily altered to make several different varieties—I've added everything from mints to macadamia nuts to them. My husband an I live on a mixed farm with our young daughter and son. Among my favorite hobbies are gardening and baking.

These are fabulous cookies and I'm not a choc fan. Very tasty and moist. Have made them several times and they are a success wherever I take them

Another awesome cookie recipe. Hubby is a true Toll House recipe addict. He says this recipe is even better and I agree with him! I baked them for exactly 11 minutes and moved them to cooling racks after 1 minute.

These cookies were okay, but nothing special. Only the batch that I removed from the oven after 12 or 13 min. came out moist. The ones I cooked for the full/close to full time were too dry for me. Also, this cookie has more of a cake consistency than a cookie and I don't care for that. With so many really great classics, and other new recipes out there to try, I doubt I will make these cookies again.

Yummy cookie. Very moist with a good medium plus chocolate flavor. Not quite as rich as a brownie. The choc and white chips pop with yummmm flavor in your mouth!
