"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!"

"These cookies are fantastic! A message to trixiejo302 - when I made the dough I formed the cookies with a size 16 scoop and then put them all on a big cookie sheet in the refrigerator. I baked a few that night and the rest I put in the freezer. I take out a few every afternoon and put them in the refrigerator. I bake those just before we have our evening tea so we can have fresh cookies every evening."

"The name of these cookies is true to form for sure. Jumbo is definitely what you get and they are PERFECT. Chewy gooey on the inside with a nice crisp outer edge. I left the dough sit in the refrigerator overnight and I had a heck of a time forming the dough to bake the cookies but it's all good. It was well worth the work. I think that next time I make these, I will run a batch through the oven after chilling for 15 or 20 minutes just to see how they turn out but other than that, right on!"
