I only made two small adjustments to this recipe--I used instant CHEESECAKE pudding and half milk chocolate/half dark chocolate chips in this recipe. Baked at 350*, the cookies were done baking at ten minutes. Rich and decadent, these cookies are amazing.

These cookies are WAY too dry. The cookies did come out thick and chewy as promised, but the flavour and texture was really lacking. As stated before they were really dry, the only way they were edible at all was dipped in tea.

These cookies were just OK for me, but my granddaughters liked them a lot. I followed the recipe as is, and the cookies did come out thick and chewy---just not buttery enough for me.

I tried this recipe and followed it without making any adjustments. It came out terrific. I was looking for a thicker,lighter cookie and this was perfect. Now I have the rich buttery chocolate chip cookie recipe and this one that is equally delicious yet different consistency. Thank you allrecipes! you never let me down. TTFN Patti Forsythe

Crisp edge and chewy center. This recipe is excellent. My 20 year old asked me for the recipe. She said it's better than toll house. I'm inclined to agree!

I didn't read the comments on this recipe until after I had already made the dough. So before I added the chocolate chips I tasted the dough. I decided to add a 1/4 cup of white sugar (which seemed to make it tastier) I also did not have unsalted butter so I used the salted butter that I had- and omitted the salt from the ingredients. However I would tell anyone using this recipe to watch the bake time because mine were done in 9-10 minutes. Any longer they would have burned. So overall, they were okay, My husband also agreed with a previous poster in saying that the cookies were "missing something". A little disappointed.....

I followed the directions exactly. I thought they were really soft and chewy. The batter was dry at first, but I kneaded it with my hands after I added the chocolate chips and the batter resembled the same consistency I am accustomed with chocolate chip cookies. They did not burn in the oven, in fact, I left them in for about 18 minutes since 15 was not enough. They do lack some flavor. I'm not sure if it's the pudding mix that does that. Mine are more doughy than the pictures, but I can bet it was because I forgot the baking soda.

At 350? For 15 minutes?! Really?! They burnt. All the way through!
