"My husband & I LOVED these cookies! Especially frozen! I used semisweet chocolate chips instead of the milk chocolate chips. I used my medium cookie scoop. I baked them for 8 1/2 minutes on my baking stone. I let them sit on the stone for a minute or so longer after baking before removing to wire rack to cool completely. I tried one fresh & warm from the oven & it seemed extra sweet when warm, but after cooling completely they were just right. Sooo delicious! Thank you for such a great recipe."

"I would give these 10 stars if I could. They are easy to make and oh so delicious. I followed the recipe as printed although I did bake them on parchment paper for easy clean up."

"Is there anything missing in this recipe? It came out AWFULLY dry. I thought the ingredients would be very tasty but when I mixed it, there were very crumbly. Ken"
