The other reviews are right there is something wrong with this recipie. I added an extra egg and 1/3 cup of milk in order to make it a texture that I could mix the nuts and chips into. Also, I rolled the dough and flatted before cooking as the drop cookies were ugly. The cookies were tasty if you like cake-like cookies.

The cookies tasted like flour cookies. Not sweet and way too many white chips for such a small recipe. Also, it's supposed to make 48 cookies, and it made 22. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Try the recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House white chip bag!

I was very disappointed - had to throw the entire batch out. We followed the recipe exactly and they came out as super dry and crumbly. Almost as if they needed more butter or another egg. :( I ended up using the stand by Toll House recipe and substituting white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Yum!!

This recipe was very good - it got rave reviews from those I served it to. It makes a cake-like cookie. The dough mixed up fairly stiff - so much so that I added about a cup and a half of milk to it (double batch) to get to a good consistency for dropping on the cookie sheet. Probably could have used a little less milk and had a slightly firmer cookie, but they were good anyway.

Make sure you do not overbake, they will turn out hard as rocks.

Good and easy cookies. I made them without the chocolate and they turned out perfect, gooey on the inside and toasted on the outside.

This recipe is AWFUL!!! The "cookies" didn't even bake!! I agree that there were way too many chocolate chips for the recipe as well...I used the Nestle toll house recipe, but did add the melted unsweet chocolate to the recpe.

I wish I would have read all of the reviews before making the cookies. I doubled the recipe, omitting the macadamia nuts since I was making them for someone who is allergic. The first batch turned out not the greatest. The second batch I shaped into balls and flattened with a spatula and reduced the cooking time to 8 minutes. These cookies turned out pretty good. I think if I try this recipe again, I will reduce the flour to 1 1/2 cups instead of 2 and see how they turn out. Not my favorite, but they were ok...
