    Throw out any other chocolate chip cookie recipe because this is the only one you'll ever need! I 100% agree with the other person who said this is better than the Nestle package! I used a #24 scoop for 14 minutes and they were perfect! Yum!

    One of the best cookie recipes ever. I leave out the nuts and always chill the dough. This doesn't make very many jumbo cookies so I always double the recipe.

    Love these cookies. My husband says they are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. Rather than make 2 doz., I make them smaller and make 4 dozen. I also pressed them down on the cookie sheet to make them flatter.

    Excellent chocolate chip cookie! By far one of the best I've tried. I use a big cookie scoop and real butter as well. The chunks of pecans are awesome in this cookie but could be omitted if preferred.

    I just want to say that this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have come across! I ate one shortly after I pulled them out of the oven and it was a like eating a little piece of Heaven! I will definetly use this recipe whenever I am craving homemade cookies. Very easy and quick baking time. I did leave the nuts out though.

    Just made these again yesterday....I always use real butter, just my preference. I toast the pecans and this time I added a cup or so of dried tart cherries along with the chocolate chips. Use an ice cream scoop....ya, they're GIANT....six per cookie sheet, but what the heck! LOVE 'EM!
