I love these! I did find them a little bit flat, so as suggested, I replaced ALL of the soda with powder and the results were amazing! Tablespoon sezed cookies work, I think, the best. And their small size does add to their "poofy-ness".
I didn't like this recipe as it was originally written. I thought they were greasy and they came out flat. I tried it again using butter softened at room temp (not in the micowave, it makes it too soft!) rather than shortening and I sifted the dry ingredients before adding. They came out sooooo much better!
These cookies came out absolutely amazing! Were easy and quick, a good classical chocolate chip cookie. I read a previous person's suggestion to replace the baking soda with baking powder to avoid flatness, and decided to use 1 t baking soda and only 1/2 t baking powder, to make the cookies rise just a little. Came out perfect! When I didn't burn the sheet ;-)
I've been making these cookies for several years. Everyone LOVES my cookies. I love to see the look on my friends faces when they take the first bite. These taste nothing like the usual toll house cookie recipe. The dough freezes very well and my kids make these all of the time. You can also replace the chocolate chips with toffee bits, (the kind without chocolate) they are to die for.
I just finish making these and they turned out great. The only thing I changed was baking powder instead of baking soda as recommended by other reviewers. The only thing that didn't come out right was the the amount I got. The recipe says it will make about 48 tsp size cookies, well I got over 200 using a tsp. Not that I am complaining though cause these will disappear faster then it took to make them lol.
I just got them out of the over and they are the BEST!!! They made exactly 4 doz. Note that I used 1 tsp powder and 1/2 tsp soda. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe.
Yum....I just wanted one so I baked one BIG cookie!
I have made this recipe as a Christmas gift to a co-worker for the past couple of years. This year, I decided to try Cooks Illustrated "Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies," thinking they would be better. Guess what? Not so much. Not at all, in fact. She was disappointed and would rather have had The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie (baked for 13 minutes, crisp). Just thought you'd like to know!
