I bake. A lot. I tried the recipe as written because...well...that's fair, right? It was excellent. As a matter of fact the only thing I changed the second time around was to add an additional TB of vanilla because--I like it. For me, it just gave the cookies a bit more flavor.
Also, I dished out my dough with a medium sized ice cream scooper and placed in the fridge for about an hour. Then baked as directed. (Mine took about 14.5 minutes in a convection oven) The rise from the chilling was incredible. Nice cold butter does that and it's a lovely thing.
I have made these several times now. I've used all kinds of chips and I've used different kinds of nuts. Great, versatile dough.
I read a review in which someone said they added a bit if cinnamon. I can totally see how that would add if you like that underlying hit of flavor. I think I'll try it next batch.
They really do look like something you'd get at a bakery...only they taste so much better.
The recipe is solid. Yields the same result every time. Yields the amount listed as far as quantity. It's a forgiving recipe--additions are easy and don't ruin the integrity of the product.
A keeper. Definitely a keeper!
