Taking a survey to determine the best chocolate chip cookie is as impossible as determining the best cola, the best burger, etc. It is sooo subjective. So many variables--the level of ability of the baker, the size and shape of the cookies, baking times, and imperfect oven temperatures to mention a few. Not to mention personal preferences...chewy or cakey, thick or thin, and on and on. I made this exactly as written, leaving some of the dough mounded, and flattening other batches slightly. The dough is just right...easy to work with. I found this dough will do whatever you want it to in terms of thickness. The cookies come out of the oven with pretty much the same shape they went in with. Having said that, I still found this a good, but just average cookie (three stars to me means average). A little on the thick side and not quite as flavorful as other recipes. I think if all butter were used it would take care of both issues. There are a lot of good chocolate chip recipes out there--my personal preference continues to be "Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies" on the Land o' Lakes website. Still, I would not discourage others from trying this recipe, as it just might be your favorite!
