I had to make a profile solely to say that these are without a doubt the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. They made 47 good-sized cookies, all loaded with chocolate chips. (Except the last few, but those were mostly because I put in a little less than 2 cups. That measurement is spot-on, by the way; any less and you won't have enough, any more and you won't be able to fit them all in!) In my oven they took about 12 minutes.
I also modified the recipe a bit, according to a few other comments as well as some of my own knowledge: I split the sugars differently, using only half a cup of white and 1 1/2 cups of brown, giving them a richer caramel taste and colour; instead of just baking soda, I used half baking soda and half baking powder, which makes them a bit puffier; and I didn't bother dissolving the baking soda, which MAY have made the batter a bit dry, but didn't have a massive effect on taste. I also ran out of white flour partway through, so ended up using one cup whole wheat flour (completely not noticeable in the cookies themselves) but that wasn't intentional so I wouldn't do that every time. Use parchment paper to line your pans -- the cookies leave residue from the chocolate, and lining the pan makes cleanup so much easier.
Overall, these are absolutely FANTASTIC. I would highly recommend them to anyone with a cookie craving, they're much better than any others I've tried, even store-bought or professionally baked.
