Cookies were very dry. I would not make them again.

The picture shows plump and chewy cookies. What I got, even following the directions to a T, were flat, crisp cookies. I made one batch of dough and cut into three parts. One I baked at 10 minutes, it burnt to a crisp. I made one at 8 minutes -- flat and almost burnt. The next sheet I cooked at 6 minutes, better color, better flavor, but still not at all chewy or plump. As far as sticking to the cookie sheet, I always use parchment paper. Nothing sticks to it. I'm going to try to tweek it because the taste is good but the cookie itself is not so good. I'll let you know how it turns out after I do some magic with it.

This is the Hershey's Reese's cookie recipe. The only difference is their recipe has Reese's peanut butter chips in them. It is a very good cookie!

If you love chocolate, you will love these cookies. I found it somewhat difficult to remove them from the cookie sheet even after allowing them to cool for one minute. You do have to remove them carefully. They are a delicious cookie.

Someone has asked about making cookies plumper. I have discovered that replacing about 1/4 butter with the same amount of shortening preserves the buttery flavor and chewiness, but gives cookies a little more body (less melting in the oven). I adapted an oatmeal cookie recipe this way and am very happy with it.

Great tasting and versatile cookie. We like our cookies large, so mine made about 3 1/2 doz. To adjust, I added 1/2 C flour. I chilled the dough for about 1 hour. I used a cookie scoop about size of large walnut. Flatten tops of cookies slightly. Bake for 15 min. and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing. I vary the flavor by adding peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips, or mint chips. All are yummy!

These are very good chocolate cookies; however, if I make it again, I'm going to replace the semi-sweet chocolate chips with white chocolate chips. Also the chocolate chips need to be cut back to about 1 to 1 1/2 cups

The best chocolate cookie recipe I have tried so far. I used 1 cup dark chocolate chips & 1 cup semi-sweet. Rich, chewy & tasty! Took mine a full 10 minutes to bake.

These cookies are really good and have a big chocolate flavor. I did increase the cooking time to 15 minutes and they still are chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. This recipe made me 3 dozen cookies. This is a keeper for my family.
