As a high school home economics teacher, I like coming up with a trimmed-down snacks for my class to try. The kids think these cookies deserve an A+. —Linda Todd of Coldwater, Michigan

    I made half this recipe and must have made the cookies slightly too big because I only got 28 cookies. I baked them for 8-8.5 minutes which resulted in a cookie with light brown edges, a golden bottom, and a gooey center. The cookies taste quite good this way as long as you like gooey cookies, but they were very thin to the point that you can pin point where each chocolate chip is located. I would have liked to have cooked them a little longer, but if I had I fear the edges would have been too crispy for me. If I were to make them again, I would cut the baking soda in half and add an equal amount of baking powder, decrease the granulated sugar to 1/2 cup and increase the brown sugar to 1.5 cups and maybe even chill the dough for a few hours before baking to see if the cookies would be any thicker.
