I just made these cookies tonight and I'm very pleased with them. I decided to follow the suggestions mentioned by many people who reviewed this recipe and I was not disappointed. Changes: 1/2 tsp salt, 2 TBSP Vanilla Flavoring, 2 TBSP of baking soda. After sifting the flour I decided to use only 4 cups instead of 4 1/2. I also used Crisco (butter flavored), because I didn't have enough butter. After rolling into balls and placing them on the cookie sheet, I pressed the cookies down to make them a little flatter. Since these were for Valentine's Day, I also added pink, red, and white M & M's on the top. Not only did they look great, they were very soft, chewy, and a little crispy around the edges. I strongly recommend parchment paper and/or stoneware to bake the cookies. I have an upper and lower oven so I used both. I cannot say one baking sheet was any better than the other. As indicated by other reviewers, you should put the cookie dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before baking them. I continued to refrigerate the dough while cookies were baking. It makes a lot of cookies, so plan on spending a few hours in the kitchen. The true test will be when my boys receive them for Valentine's Day.
