I was young when I submitted this, and totally submitte it wrong. and then I couldnt remember my old login password to change it but finally allrecipes changed it so now its perfect as written. My old review on this used to say "add 1/2 t baking soda" because i had forgotten to include it when i 1st submitted this recipe but once again allrecipes finally made the change so this recipe is now perfect as written. so dont change anything!!! However, Sometimes I do crisco instead of butter. but either way its good.
This has been my favorite recipe since I was 14. Ive tried other ones, but always go back to this one. My friends all love it too, and they only use this recipe. I always underbake my cookies and then freeze them; that way they never get hard.
Too much flour. Way too dry. Won't be using this recipe again.
Congratulations, Ashley! You've just passed our resident gourment taste tester. My 24 year old son gave you a 9 1/2 out of ten the first day these were baked and said the remaining 1/2 will be granted when they pass the freshness test in a couple of days. Well, they did. The dough is excellent to work with. I like a dough that I can roll into balls without messy hands. They stayed high after cooling, were chewy and chokeful of chocolate chips. I think the problem some had with inconsistency is because the dry ingredients have to be added in gradually as per instructions so that the baking powder will be well-distributed throughout the dough. After trying tens of recipes this is the one I'll keep. Thanks, Ashley.
Yummy! These cookies turned out great!! They stayed soft and they had awesome flavor!! We loved them!!
These were amazing cookies. However, I can't make them again, because my family ate the whole batch in one day (12 hours) :).... they were soooo awesome
We chose this recipe mainly because it was the only choco chip cookie recipe with only one egg (which we had one of)...used 1 1/2 cups chips and 1/2 cup walnuts chopped the same size as the chocolate... delicious! Our new favorite simple cookie formula!!!
Really easy recipe that tasted great! My husband thought they were a little cake like, Oh well more for me!
