Reviews for Super Chunky Cookies
"What can I use instead of shortening?"
"After I got started on these cookies, I realized that I didn't have toffee bits or white chocolate chips, so I used 2 cups of chocolate chips and about 1/2 cup each of butterscotch and peanut butter chips. Yum!"
"We make these ALL of the time. They are so amazing. We often leave out the nuts for fussy guests and you don't miss a thing."
"Nice and chewy. They turned out exactly like the picture. Make sure you use a sturdy spoon to stir in all the chips."
"these cookies are a big hit. I have made them three times and have never been disappointed."
