This recipe won first place in our county fair. My son submitted it and it won! We increased the flour by 1/4 cup (to make 2 cups of flour total). We used two eggs (how does one get a half of an egg??)and we used a layer of white chips and swirled choc/white chips. It all fits in the jar if you pack it in well. We will be making these for Christmas gifts this year.

Cookie were way too sweet. I think that the chocolate chips should be fewer. Also I used 2 eggs, I didn't understand the 1 1/2 eggs. How does one half an egg? Cookies were a bit flat.

This recipe is super easy to put together and are probably the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted. They are a little crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. I increased the flour to 2 cups and changed to 2 eggs and decreased the chocolate chips to 1-1/2 cups. I also found that if you pack every layer as you go, there is too much room left open at the top of the jar. So I only packed it down at the top before adding a final layer of chocolate chips. (I layered it like this: flour, chocolate chips, flour, brown sugar, flour and chocolate chips. Very pretty! Thank you!

These are delicious. I cut the recipe in half and filled pint size jars instead quart and the cookies tasted the same and fantastic. We are going to make these at my sons elementary schools craft night for holiday gifts for parents! Great recipe!

This is a GREAT chocolate chip cookie recipie. Easy to make and taste delicious. I used 2 eggs--didn't understand "combine 1 1/2 eggs".

I made a dozen of these to give away as party favors for my son's first birthday party. Turned out great, but so much chocolate I decided to call them "Mostly Chocolate Chip Cookies!" I also left the chocolate chips out of the flour mixture so I could create a more layered look in the jar: 1/2 flour mixture, 1c chocolate chips, brown sugar, 1/2 flour mixture, 1c chocolate chips. Can't wait to give them out!

I doubled this recipe to more-than taste test! I actually omitted the eggs and only used 2 cups of Chocolate Chips instead of 4. This recipe is absolutely the best. I have used the Toll House (Copyright) recipe for years, but will now only use their chips! This is a very rich and crisp cookie! My entire family loved it!

I love this recipe so do my children. It is easy to make with them and then what a pleasure to eat those cookies. You can keep them fresh for several days in a tin box.
