Well I followed the recipe to the letter except for the nuts, and it did come out very tasty... BUT I must have done something wrong, because the heaps of cookiedough just sort of melted and my final result was a thin layer of cookie-like substance where I could taste a bit too much of egg. This is probably my own fault as I am a 16 year old guy who just tried to bake for his first time ever :)

I didn't care for this recipe. The dough was not sweet at all and made for a very plain tasting cookie.

This recipe was excellent! I halved the recipe since I didn't have all of the chocolate chips. I also used milk chocolate chips in place of the white chocolate ones since my family doesn't care for white chocolate. The cookies were firm on the outside, soft and chewy inside. I loved the fact that I didn't have to use brown sugar. I will keep this in my recipe file for a quick cookie recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

This recipe has become my go-to chocolate chip recipe the past three years! I love the texture and taste and the results are perfect every time. They end up as a mound cookie vs. a round flat one but I like it. Perhaps i should flatten them with my meat tenderizer mallet....waffle pattern side down, but I don't know. I may try it. Just happy with how it goes at this time. Yummo!

I am a big fan of baking cookies and cakes, and I just wanted a simple, on-the-go recipe for chocolate chip cookies to use up some of the chocolate from the chocolate Easter eggs we had around the house...and I baked these cookies which were absolutely delicious!!! I didn't put in the walnuts, though... but the huge chunks of chocolate I put in really made the cookie sweet and firm in the right!

These cookies tasted great! They are very sweet, but not too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly except I did not use walnuts. I did not find them too cakey like others seemed to find them. I cooked them for 11 minutes and they came out perfect!

These were good chocolate chip cookies. I'm glad we made these, but they weren't astounding enough to be called "best ever".
