"This recipe has too much brown sugar. It should be split with white sugar. Toll house recipe is much better."

"This is basically a double recipe of Toll House cookies, but a great idea to feed a large group."

"Great recipe. It's quick and easy, although next time I will be cutting the recipe in half. It made about 3 pans worth for me and I took one to work, one to my boyfriends house, and then kept one in the fridge for a week and pulled it out for a girls night. The best part is that the one I kept in the fridge was still soft and yummy even after 7 days..."

"Yummy! I used this recipe to bake bar cookies as part of a dessert buffet for a large group of individuals. These particular cookies were gone in a matter of minutes."
