This is a great basic recipe but had little flavor to the dough and the texture was eggy so I added a half a teaspoon baking powder and half a teaspoon baking soda and a teaspoon of vanilla and some salt.

I appreciated the first review which said to add vanilla. I took it a few steps farther. I cut the flour by one cup then the sugar by 3/4 of a cup. I also added white sugar. So, that makes one and 1/2 cup brown sugar and one cup white sugar. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon as well as 1 tsp baking soda. I mixed the butter and sugars together until creamed. Then I added the eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon. Then I added the flour and baking soda.

I added some vanilla to the batter, which really made it smell and taste delcicous. And it was sooo easy! Fill the house with smells of fresh baked cookies in half the time!

There was little flavor, except for the abundance of chocolate chips. The texture reminded me of play-doh. Definately needs some kind of leavening and flavoring extract. A little salt may help too. I have no plans to make this again.

This recipe is missing an ingredient or two. I found it flavorless, which leads me to believe it is missing vanilla extract, and the texture was odd, which I believe is probably due to lack of baking soda.

Great recipe! I used butterscotch chips instead of the chocolate because that's what my family likes better. They loved these bars. They are very easy to make.
