With well over 2K reviews already, it isn't quite necessary for me to add my 2 cents, but I love these cookies SO much, it'd be wrong not show my support. Ok, so if you're looking for, not only an extraordinary Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, but a recipe for just a "really, REALLY AMAZING cookie", this is it! I've made these twice now, and both times the only change I made was cutting the recipe in half, as I only needed a small amount of cookies each time. With some recipes, halving results in failure, but not this one. You can successfully make a 1/2 batch, and I'm sure it would double just as easily. Moving on, this is a super flexible recipe - use any type of chip you want: semi-sweet, milk or white chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, mint, cinnamon, etc. Also, if nuts are your thing, these would be SO good with walnuts or pecans - with the chips, or by themselves. Dried berries - cranberries, cherries, blueberries, etc. - would also be yummo and my next batch will be white chocolate chip with dried cranberries & walnuts. Additionally, the consistency of this dough is a dream to work with. It's pretty stiff, so it scoops nicely, although I DO suggest flattening the dough a bit prior to baking and again once they are done, as they do not spread much. Finally, I use my 2 tsp. scoop and both times I have made these, I have found that the 1/2 batch yields 18 thumbprint-sized cookies. Overall, these really are the perfect cookies... Easy, consistent & DELISH!
